Hi Everyone, a card I made just because I wanted to use the image.

I had this beautiful girl as a freebie from the A Day For Daisies blog. I didn't know what to do with her, I thought she needed a natural background, then realised I had taken a landscape playing field photo last week, which would do if I altered it! I added it into Photoshop added a blending mode and colour overlay and there was my background, I think it looks quite good and so very different?

I coloured her in PS, however when I printed it out, her skin was so pale, it didn't look like I had coloured her, (tip - stay with colours you know for skin!) so I took my Spectrum Noirs and coloured her skin. I have a lot to learn with them, but I hope I haven't spoilt the whole result. I layered the image on black then a punched yellow layer added some gold bling - voila!  The inside was done to match and I added the sentiment "and I Thank You with all my heart", I wish you could see how it glitters.

Wow, Faith, another fab card! I'm sure I've mentioned (once or twice or maybe more....) how impressed I am that you do all this gorgeous work on the computer! So clever!

(And I'm so sorry that Wales lost their rugby match at the weekend, but at least they did better than England!!)

love Mags B x
