DV 97 Christmas

Our final challenge of the year at Dream Valley is Christmas and this will run for one month.

We are sponsored by multiple sponsors for this challenge please see the challenge post for details.

Untitled - 6My image is from one of our Sponsors, The Paper Shelter, and is called Decorating the Mushrooms. I used the pre-coloured image as I was so busy I didn’t have the time to colour one in first, and then overlaid it on one of the papers, which are all from Bearly Mine Designs, apart from the Turquoise Matting layer which I created on the pc to match. The image layer was then overlaid on the background layer, which I also created using two of the papers from the pack. I used the shadow tool on my graphics program to give the illusion of dimension. The sentiment was also created on the pc and overlaid across the background paper prior to printing. After I had printed it out I added glitter to the lights to give them some added sparkle. This will be a lovely flat card for posting, but has the added advantage of looking dimensional.
