Hey All! Happy Monday! An oxymoron if ever there was one! Since it is Monday, we know what that means. . .It's another Magical Monday over at the "There's Magic in the Air" blog. Nina May has a wonderful Fall/Thanksgiving image for you this week called Harvest Geese. This week it was my turn to come up with the challenge. I chose to challenge everyone by using pop dots or foam squares to make the image pop! Here is my card:
It's kinda hard to see where I used my dimensionals in the photo above. I used them for the pumpkins and also on the horizontal fence posts. I also used dimensionals to pop up the entire matted image. I think you can see them better if you click on the pic. I went WAY out of my comfort zone with the placement of the matted image on this card! As most of you have probably noticed, most of my matted images on my card are safely placed in perfect alignment with the card size and shape. I decided that I would be different this time so I angled it for a little more interest. It almost has a post card feel to it. I colored the image with my ccp/oms and I sponged the morning sky with Colorbox inks. I matted it onto Bazzill card stock and then onto paper by The Paper Studio that looks like crackled wood. The background paper is some of my favorite also from The Paper Studio. The leaf thingys in the corner are cut with Nestabilities. Here is a closeup:
The paper I used to cut them out was stain samples (like paint samples). They have great texture and wonderful colors. You can find them at any hardware store. I found mine at Lowe's. The little berry thingys are pearls that I colored with a Bic marker. I love how you can make any color you want. The sentiment is computer generated and cut out using my round and scalloped Nesties.
So there you have it. Seriously, be sure to go over to Nina's "There's Magic in the Air" to pic up this digital image for free. We'd also love for you to play along with the challenge this week!
On a final note, for those of you who have not yet signed up for my blog candy, you have until tomorrow at 6 PM Eastern Time to leave a comment.
