Up Up and Away...

Hello bloggers.. Hope you are all well and have had a good weekend.

We took the boys to see Ice Age 4 this afternoon, they really enjoyed it, it was the first time my youngest had been to the cinema. He sat so still watching th film, bless him lol

My card for today is using Teddy Bea. I have used a ballon stamp from a Kanban set too.

My image is coloured with promarkers (cerise, sandstone, rose pink, ameythest, burnt sienna, spice, lilac)... I have used Making Memories papers. Embellished with flowers from WOC.. Ribbon and rhinestones from my stash. The sentiment stamp is LOTV.. Both the image and sentiments are cut out using my Nesti's.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Thanks for popping by today.

Enjoy the rest of your evening, Im off now to do the usual Sunday stuff.. Bathing boys getting ready for school tomorrow.

Hugs Kelly x

Hi Kelly ref Serif... Did you know that there is a fantastic closed group on facebook called serif users group - LOADS of helpful stuff and inspiration and apparently a great laugh too!!
Sadly I am not on facebook but if you are then why not try.
For my card which was nautical theme I looked at all the digi kits I had and picked out the nautical looking items. Then I just placed them on the screen as I would place things on my card to see if it works. Then I gradually build up layers making sure things dont overlap or get hidden.
I also use the shadow tool its fab , click on the image go up to the top bar and click shadow tool box then use your mouse to drag a little on the image, sometimes just a squidge will do , you will see a depth shadow appear and the image is now 3D.
Your best friend is the SELECT button at the top , anytime you get stuck or things stop working click select it usually fixes it, it will also stop using one command and let you use another.
So just pick a few images, or pick one complete digi kit, load it in and start to play , you will soon get the hang of it.Hope this helps Hugs Elaine
