3CT26 - Techie Time


Welcome! - It's time for a little fun over on Three Clovers Designs as it's Thursday and time for the 3CT Challenge. This week it's all about "Techie" stuff. We needed to use a Digital Image or Create a background using our computer. Well I'm so NOT a computer expert so creating my own background was out of the question. I have however embraced a few Digital images along the way so I started off finding one that I like for this weeks challenge and happened upon this cute Halloween image over on Dustin Pike's website found here: I couldn't resist since Halloween is one of my favorite holidays.
I started coloring my little "monster" and then decided upon some paper that I had in my stash but then I thought, "Hey why not look for some digital halloween paper." So I started searching and I found this website: Free Digital Scrapbooking and I found the perfect paper for my image. I had already started coloring it so I needed something that would go with the colors that I had already used on my monster. This fun plaid piece worked perfectly. After I colored the image I started assembling the card and sewed on my DP and a border made with my new Martha Stewart Halloween Spider Web punch (is that not cool or what!). Next I decided to print another sentiment to go with the monster's BEWARE warning and what could be better then things that go BUMP in the night. LOL! Lastly I wanted something to set everything off and decided to hit the local JoAnn's and found these wonderfully fun flatbacked spiders in just the colors I needed. Talk about a great find. I used mini glue dots to adhere them. All in all I had a blast with this card.

Be sure to see how clever and creative the rest of the DT was with this "Techie" challenge and then give it a try yourself. You can do so by clicking on the 3CT Blinkie on my sidebar. Have a great day.

Ida this is too cute. I didn't even know Dustin had freebies. I purchased a bunch of images from him yesterday and then downloaded a bunch of the freebies today. You did a great job with this challenge. Love the webbing on the edge.
