ABC G for Go Digital

I can’t believe it’s April already, the year is flying by!

Our challenge at ABC today is G for Go Digital and we are sponsored by Aurora Wings.

G Go Digital

I have taken the challenge quite literally as far as the image goes. I used ‘Rite of Spring’ from our Sponsor which I loaded into my graphics programme and then coloured her digitally before printing. Because I wasn’t very good at shading digitally I added white highlights with a sharpie poster paint pen, and also some glitter highlights. Her face was coloured by hand with my copics.

The diecut borders top and bottom of the image are from Joycraft and the gorgeous feather paper is from Craftwork Cards. The sentiment came with some feather stamps in a magazine freebie.

I am entering this into:-

  7. I like the combination of digital and non-digital. There's a nice contrast between the larger scaled background paper and the pretty framed picture.
