Hello and welcome to my scrapbooking blog.
Today I am sharing my DT project for the new challenge starting over at the Stampin' with the Dragon challenge blog with the theme 'Anything Goes'.
Stamping Dragon also sponsor the challenge and the lucky winner receives a voucher to spend in the online store!
I am using the new 'Forest Gathering' digital kit for this project along with the cute digital stamp showing all the characters from the Stamping Dragon Design's range. This kit is hot of the presses (digitally speaking) and is available in the store from today. Check out this kit here Dragons Lair. Remember, although I choose to use the digital kits with my photo-editing software, the papers and digital images can be printed and used in the usual way to create cards and scrapbook pages.
Just love those vibrant colours and the earthy greens
I wanted to try something different with this new kit and break away from the scrapbook page so I went (again) with a card topper. I call it a card topper simply because I can resize the 'topper' to fit the front of my chosen square card base and I have an instant card which can also be personalised with my trusty Photoshop.
I try to learn something new every week or so from my photo-editing software, which I can then use in create effects in my digital scrap pages or cards. This week was creating reflections.
I got the idea from the group of SDD characters and the name fo the new kit, 'Forest Gathering'. I imagined the guys and gals, getting together in the forest, to celebrate a special occasion and a nice spot near a pond sprang to mind.
I found my Photoshop instructions through various Youtube demonstrations and with a little bit of my own inspiration I managed to create a decent reflected image that met with my idea quite well. I am not sure if this can be repeated with some of the cardmaking and craft software on sale , but it is worth digging around to see what special effects your package can create. I then created the layered background using the backing papers from the kit
The new challenge starts today at Stampin' with the Dragon and we are eagerly awaiting to see what you can create with this ever popular theme 'Anything Goes'.
