Hello, Friends! I am so excited to share today’s post with you. For those of you who have been following me for a while, you know I’ve been teaching myself how to use the wonderful digital art stamps, papers and images from Crafty Secrets. Since it’s Christmas, I’ve been playing around with my favorite Christmas resource: Creating With Vintage Christmas CD6. I’ve printed lots of papers, and used a lot of the images, but I’ve never taken the plunge into creating a digital collage with all these elements….until now! I got my Brave Boots out of the Closet of Shame and created my first digital collage! Woot!
Ta da! The focal image on this card is actually made up from 4 separate digital images: the vintage music paper, the holly frame, the robins, and the border pieces at the top and bottom of the collage. And it was EASY! I topped it off with a luscious Red Delicate Stitched Satin Bow and a few embellies. And let me tell you, I am really tickled with my bad self! LOL
I was so excited, I made a second digital collage for this card. I used the same sweet image, a different frame and background paper. I printed it out, fussy cut around it and treated it with UTEE to age it. I love the result! Of course. that beautiful Ivory, Rust and Gold Plaid Ribbon adds to the rustic vibe of the card.
So who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks? I just made my first digital collage, and I can’t wait to make more!
Thanks for stopping by!
