Fig-ured QKR

 Hi Everyone I have 2 DT cards for today

This is for the challenge at QKR. Our challenge is on the 1st and 15th of every month, so you have 2 chances every month to enter the challenge.

We will select two winners each of the weeks 
1 using QKR Stampede  or Eureka Stamps image
 and 1 using any image!

Anything Goes every 1st & 15th of the month
I had an idea and used this image to try and see if I could do it, I'm glad I did, as it wasn't as hard as I remembered. 
I  took the digital stamp image into Photoshop, digitally coloured it and made a pattern paper for the background, being pleased I hadn't forgotten how, I haven't done it for many years. I printed the pattern layer and the darker bottom layer, then added them to the card. 
I then took the smaller coloured pink square with the sentiment and the larger uncoloured fig on it, into my digital die cutting machine, sized it to fit the card, I made 4 layers of the whole image and 4 of the fig only, then printed and cut the images. I tried to copy the colours in a picture of a fig. I didn't realise they had so many colours in them. I coloured the stem, leaf and fig with DI's and then coloured one of the single fig images, glued all layers and attached them to the card.
I added die cut corners adding a cut out piece to the other corners. 

I have so many other puns to use for this image, it'll be fun for quite a while methinks.

You amaze me Faith! Your computer/digital skills are superior! I have no clue how to color using the computer or make my own paper from a digi image. lol I love this card! I love the background paper and I love how you colored your fig and leaf...looks so real and love the "shading". You are really a clever computer girl! Me thinks you have figured that new computer out really well! Love the play on words, way to cute! Hugs, Brenda
