April Showers

Hello dear blog friends. Thanks for stopping by to visit. I don't know about April showers, we are still having snow showers and I've really had enough of it now!

I have used digi images in the past but all I've done is printed the image, coloured it and matted it etc. Today I decided I would play around and try to merge more than one image.

My Card

Click on image to enlarge picture

My card is quite plain and flat so very easy for posting.  I used the Rainy Day Collection from Clear Dollar Stamps and merged three different images plus a digi background paper - cloud, sentiment, duck in brolly and the spotted paper. I'm not really computer-literate but I managed fine. I think we tend to allow fear to make problems seem larger than they actually are. I then added Cheery Lynn Lace Corner Deco dies and some gems to finish it off. Oh, and I also used Glossy Accents on the rain drops and the rain water inside the umbrella so that it looked wet. Doesn't show on the picture, but looks quite effective in real life.

Well that's it from me. Love and hugs from Christine xx

  7. Fabulously done Christine! I don't do much digi crafting other than printing off papers or images to be coloured so I wouldn't have a clue where to start! I'm still trying to figure out how to make a signature for my cards in Gimp lol!

  21. Since yesterday the frost has gone...finally!! Send you some warmer weather over the Northsea (when I could), but it is raining now. I am not complaining, because everything in nature (and our garden) is so dry and need some water. Yout ducky would love some I see, with the umbrella upside down!
    Anyway: your latest cards are beautiful Christine!

    which blog platform are you using for this site? I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've
    had problems with hackers and I'm looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
