Hey All! How was your week? Hope your weekend was all you wanted it to be!Today is another Magical Monday, and today we introduce a new FREE digital image from Nina May! Today, you are being introduced to Gigi. Here she is in all of her splendor:
Is she not the cutest pig ever? LOL Today's challenge is to use paper piecing on your card. When I first saw this image, I was drawn specifically to the umbrella for some reason. That umbrella was just screaming "fringe". But I knew that I didn't have anything that was small enough to look like fringe. So, when I colored the image, I colored a green border about a 1/4 of an inch around the bottom of the umbrella and then cut it out (all from a second printed image). I then used my smallest snip scissors to cut vertical cuts all along that newly created green border to give a fringe effect. I then popped it up with a foam square piecing it on top of the first printed image. Here is a close up:
Actually, the fringe shows better by looking at the shadow it casts. Anyway, I colored the image with my cheap colored pencils and oms. I used Diamond Glaze for the shiny water effect (can't see in the photo very well). I sponged the background sky with Colorbox light blue ink and a dauber. The paper is from a DCWV stack and the mat paper is navy blue Bazzill card stock. The bow was made using my bow easy. I think I'm getting a little better with using it. The inside of the card says "Relax and Enjoy Your Day". The sentiment was computer generated.
So, there you have it. Another great FREE DIGITAL IMAGE from Nina May and There's Magic in the Air. Hurry on over and snag your free image and if you have a chance, play along with us in the challenge this week. I'd love to see what you do with this image.
Thanks again for all of your support and for stopping by. I love having you here. I'll be posting a new post of some great stuff on Wednesday. So I'll see you all then.
