3CT28 - Photogenic Fun
Welcome to 3CT Challenge. This week Kerry challenged the DT to come up with a card/project using a photo or computer image. This is something that I don't do very often with my cards so it was a bit of a challenge for me to come up with an idea that I liked.
I started off picking out a photo that I had taken of Coleen this summer riding her tricycle. I printed it out on card stock and then cut it out using a Nestabilitie Die. Then I picked out a stamp that I just knew would work with my photograph. If you recall this post the Tricycle image in another image in the Transportation Stamp Kit from TPC Studio. Don't you think it's perfect for my photo!
I based my card colors on Coleen's outfit. The card base is Whisper White layered with Tempting Turquoise, a piece of Summer Picnic DP (retired),and Lavender Lace. I punched out photo corners in Lovely Lilac and created a border of Real Red using the scallop punch. Then I wrapped the border with silver cording to coordinate with the silver of her handlebars. I stamped the Tricycle with Lavender Lace ink and used LL Eyelets (a forgotten embellishment these days it seems as you see so few using them on cards). The sentiment is also for the same stamp set and was stamping with Tempting Turquoise ink.
I've included the regular photo that I took of Coleen as it was hard to take a decent photo of the card and I wanted you to see the happy expression on her face. She really enjoys that tricycle. Next year we're thinking of a big bike for her 5th birthday.
