ATC swap Altered photos

alteredPhotosCopSml

My ATCs for this months CBC swap are altered via my PC rather than stamping so I made use of a couple of great tutorials I found over on Jessica Prague’s blog. I hardly ever do digital stuff so I never remember how I got the results. I press keys and add layers then every now and again I get some nice results that I can never emulate.
Harry took the photo of the Forth railway bridge and I added the grunge frame from Jessica’s site and altered the RGB balance. The edges were further distressed physically.
The poppy photo is a result of me playing around with the macro facility on my camera along with Jessica’s tutorial on how to get the text to look like it is behind a petal. This one has a small border and corners added digitally too.

A bit of Manga for Ceara

Ceara18
It is Ceara’s 18th birthday soon and I know she likes Manga style art and I have tried to emulate Ceara’s hair colour (although it changes every time I see her) hence the kind of red/purple mix – and would you believe it – she has gone brown again!
The digital stamp image is called FuwaFuwa created by CupuDOTexe: printed then coloured using copic pens. I heat set the ink just in case is smudged while colouring with the copics.Inks: black document, Memento rhubarb stalk (for edges)
Card: white card, Yuzen paper, origami paper, purple pearlescent card
Stamps: Elusive images Bookmark plate (greeting), digit stamp FuwaFuwa
Other: gem, stickles, copic pens, ribbon, mizuhiki cord, lucky kitty and blossom stickers, origami crane (for longevity)
