A little experiment

I managed to steal a little time in my Crafty Corner this afternoon, and with no urgent cards to be made, other than my July ATC, I decided to have a play. I have been thinking about buying some digital images for my card making but have been a bit concerned. Then I remembered that some time ago, I signed up and got a couple of free downloads from Mo's Digital Pencil, so I printed one off, coloured it in and then sat and scratched my head! I struggled big time with this! The hardest bit for me was how to cut out the image. I quite like how the card turned out in the end, but it took hours! What do you think?

I also made a set of four ATCs for the July swap (I hope that Karen doesn't see this before she receives it, but I don't think she looks at my blog!) How lovely it would be to be going to America on holiday, especially Florida! Sunshine, days of fun, fun, fun and craft shops - sigh. In my dreams!

  1. Love the card Carole - such a cute image.
    Great ATC too - Florida is all that and more - pity I wasn't a crafter when we went! Mind, we had to buy an extra suitcase as it was (we went in November so I did all my Christmas shopping)- goodness knows how many we'd have needed if I'd hit the craft shops!lol

  4. Wonderful Carole!

    I know what you mean, sometimes one small project can take hours!
    It's lovely though, fab image and great to see those tickets again!

    Love your ATC too! I've had to come out of the swap for a while as so much of my stash
    is packed away :(

    I'm so pleased you liked your June ATC, once again sorry it's sooooo late, but so pleased you liked it.
    Hope all is going well for Alex in her new job!

    Suzie xxxx :)
