For my card I wanted to show just how versatile the digital images that FDC supply us with can be. I took one of their images called ‘Wired Heart’ and loaded it into my graphics package. I constructed my own sentiment using various different fonts and used the heart as a substitue for the word ‘heart’ in my sentiment. I then used a colour picker to pick some colours from my backing paper, which was from Bearly Mine’s Patchwork Party pack, and used those colours to digitally colour in the heart to match.
Whilst I was digitally playing with colours, I couldn’t find a matching plain paper to mat and layer with so I also used one of the predominant colours in the Patchwork paper to colour a solid plain sheet of paper to tone. The diecut is a Joycrafts one, the pins from my stash and the corners are a Memory Box die, macarena corner. The paper lace was white and I shaded it pink with a Colour Box pink inkpad. The two little flowers are made from Martha Stewart paper clay and then I just dusted over them with the same pink ink I used to colour my white adhesive paper lace.
