Today is a Digital Design Team Day over at Paper Playtime! :)
The theme this time to make a SUMMER project and include a digital image.
Today I am using an image from Dude Time Doodles.
I am working with their image titled "Hammock Harold."
The front features the digi of Harold lounging on hammock on a nice summer day... the grass is growing long beneath his feet...
I layered Harold on a piece of grass patterned paper, a layer of black and then a layer of dark green. He's mounted up on pop dots... sitting on a border of craft card stock and then a layer of grid paper from the DCWV "Guy Stack", black and then on the craft card stock easel base. I added a row of three brown brads along the bottom, a craft tag (from TBBM cut @ 1") with a Studio G stamp. The front is finished off with some black inking and a few twists of off white craft twine.
Harold sits up on his easel base... the sentiment tag on the bottom is mounted the same as Harold himself. I added another strip of craft card stock to hold up the easel layer. Like the accent border on the card front, I ran it though the "Diamonds in the rough" Cuttlebug embossing folder before inking the edges and the surface. This layer is also attached with pop dots.
I colored Harold in using Photoshop. I even used the "grass" painting brush to get that cool over-grown look on Harold's lawn. I added some clouds to the background and finished off the sky with a blue gradient layer.
While I was at it, I went ahead and made two of these cards. I love doing cards in multiples... each additional card doesn't take too much more time than one card! :)
