Fabulous

Hello everyone!  Welcome to another Papercraft Star Challenge!  This week's challenge is a color challenge with a beautiful color combo!  You can choose to use two, three, or all four colors in your projects.  I decided to stick with the two cooler colors of Sky Blue, and Purple.  For my card today I used an image that was offered as a freebie a few weeks ago.  Are you taking advantage of those fabulous images offered every Tuesday from our sponsor The House Across The Bay?  What a great way to try out digital images.  The image on my card was in a black and white color scheme which I printed out, and colored with some Prisma Colors.  The background is also from The House Across The Bay called Crayola Backgrounds 024.  For this digi, I opened the digital file in my Photoshop and changed the hue of the purple.  I like being able to slightly alter these images and keep the grunge details.  I embossed my background and adhered my sentiment on top of both the background and image.  A little handmade rick rack flower finishes my card.  I hope you have a little time to play along this week!  Just link up your project before Monday 6:00 a.m. EST, for a chance to win!

  3. Wow. I did not expect anyone to have a card like this with this color challenge - what an inspiration to all the Papercraft followers. I haven't used that free digital yet, but I am going to do that very soon, thanks to you. (the Crayola backgrounds is one of my most often used digitals!)

  6. Don't you just love that you can change the colors of images in Photoshop!?! I think that is one of the best software programs ever invented. I love that you used it to customize her dress to fit the challenge. Perfect!
