Spring Card

Hi Everyone, I tried doing something and it worked!!

Image and sentiment by Paulette at Create with TLC 

First I added a gradient to the print image in PS, then I
 used the Spring sentiment and printed it onto vellum, 
I decided to emboss the back of the image,
 it turned out quite well, I think next time I will make the print a
 shade or two lighter, but I am pleased with how this turned out.
Both layers layered onto the card and then a couple of gems to finish.

Another make with my SiL, while she was visiting and we "played".
She had sent me a photo of my #3 Brother, after seeing me add a front image to a
 T shirt for my eldest Brother, a few days before they came to visit.
I didn't manage to get a photo of the eldest wearing his shirt, but #3 Brother loved his and wore it as soon as he had it LOL. Here are the 2 I did.

I added a gradient to the old photos, added text around the photo, printed them onto heat transfer paper, then ironed them onto the T shirt.

eldest was 29 here, he is now 81!

#3 brother at 12 years old
Here he is at 77, starting my birthday celebrations off!

I also added this original layout to the Digital Whisper blog

Wow, your card is so cool Faith!!! I love how you did the gradient thing, although I don't begin to understand how you did it-it sure is cool looking. But what I love the most are the t-shirts you made for your brothers! They are clever and oh so fun!!! Yes, you do have handsome brothers then and I'm sure all still are! I need one for myself. lol I have't made t-shirts in a long time but used to. Hugs, Brenda
