…I Love You

It’s Wednesday and I’m actually posting my third card for this week…GO, ME!!!  :)   I found myself in a coloring mood this weekend, so I figured I’d go ahead and make some cards too.  Once again I sat down at my laptop and designed my very own custom sweetheart image by merging two newer By LORi Designs’ digital stamp sets (“Puddle Jumper-Ainsley” and “Puddle Jumper-Davey”…but I created the sentiment myself) with Photoshop Elements 8.0.  Whatcha think?

I printed the edited image out and colored it all with Copic Sketch Markers.  I wanted to keep the layout simple, but I added tons of textures and dimension.  I cut the focal panel out with the Top Note Die and my Sizzix Big Shot, then added some Saddle-Stitched Hibiscus Burst Ribbon and White Pearls along the bottom of the panel.  I paired the completed image with some patterned paper from the Tea Party Designer Series Paper pack along with some Basic Gray and Pretty in Pink Cardstock.  I added some Gray Stitching to the patterned paper panel, then attached each layer to the card base using several Dimensionals.  I added some *sparkle* to the heart elements by using some Crystal Stickles to complete the card.

That’s it for me today!  Thanks for stopping by, and I’ll see you again next time!  Until then…

It is baffling me how to merge those images. I am working with Photoshop 5.0 and I have a feeling I will need to upgrade to do this!!! I love what you do with Photoshop and your coloring just rocks!!!
