An Option for Digital Images

Sometimes working with a digital image can be difficult, especially if it is a sample for a DT project and you need to have a little extra creativity. 

This card was made for Design Team project for The Cheerful Stamp Pad challenge 66: Vintage Children using McMahon Five Designs' digital image.  The image is a colored copy of an antique card and looked like this:
Now, there is nothing wrong with this image, but it just didn't really inspire me.  I played around with it on Print Shop, turning it to a black and white, and that did nothing for my Mojo.  I then added a sepia tone to it and fell in love with the image.

It is mounted on a brown card stock that has been stamped with Rogue Redheads Beach Babes background stamp using Staz-On Timber ink.  I also used the stamp and same ink on the card base itself, and a sentiment from the same plate of stamps.

This is the second week for The Cheerful Stamp Pad challenge 66: Vintage Children so won't you play along with us?  You don't need to use this or any digital image to play along, just a vintage image of children.

  1. Like your sepia image and card. I've never gotten the hang of digital art or playing with images. I don't think I even have a program to do that. Maybe someday.


  2. Since I saw the real thing I can attest to it being fantastic. IPad acting up tonight, maybe a signal it is bed time.
