Dewdrop Craftz have a new design team and a new challenge for you and whats more Nikki has moved it back over to blogger, given it some new wallpaper so its a whole new look! I do hope you can join in with the challenge which is SUMMER OF LOVE. If you're a little fed up of xmas cards (or like me don't make any lol) then come and unwind and do something a little different!
OK here's what I've done! The image is Loli Koukosi which is a digiz. You get the girl and boy separately so you can use them on their own or together like I've done. I'll try and explain how I did it, if you're familiar with layers in an image editting program then you might be with me, if not I'll try my best lol! I used Paint Shop Pro for this.
I opened a new blank image and copied first the boy and pasted this as a new layer then the girl also as a new layer so they are on 2 separate layers. I turned the girl around (Image-Mirror) then pulled her over to the boy. I selected the eraser tool and in the screen menu clicked on the layer containing the BOY. Using the eraser I rubbed out bits of him that overlapped with the girl. It wont damage the girl on the top layer but will just take off bits of the underlying layer if that makes sense!
I've coloured the image with promarkers and sponged on Heritage shimmer ink then stamped the gorgeous flower swirl which I'm rather traken with at the moment which is from the infamous Tracey Coates butterfly beauties plate. Papers are K&Co (Sparkly sweet) and HOTP (Cardmakers pack) Added a ribbon and tied about 3 bows so it bunches like that and added some flowers which Judy sent me!
