Do you know what this little banner means!? I get to be part of the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge Design Team for the next few months. You might have already gathered that I love challenges and that is just what a "SPARK" is, a piece of inspiration that should spark a creative idea.
This is the newest Paper Smooches Spark challenge and of course, I wanted to play along.
I thought the way the little images were scattered on the page, it looked like leaves falling. I used the newest FREE digital images at Paper Smooches. One thing that is cool about a digital image is that you can print it out in pretty much any size. All I did was open a Microsoft Word document and inserted the leaves, one by one. I resized the leaf a few times and printed them on plain white cardstock and a piece of red patterned paper and a piece of yellow patterned paper. For the white cardstock I used the x-Press Copic Marker paper. Not only does this paper would amazingly well with the Copic markers for coloring and blending but the computer prints wonderfully on it.
I printed the digital sentiment directly on the white cardstock. The leaves were cut out and then placed on the white cardstock that I had sprayed a couple colors of the Smooch Spritz by Clearsnap. The white leaves were colored with Copic markers.
Another reason for a happy post is that The Cat's Pajamas stamps was the sponsor this last week at Card Positioning Systems blog. Is this guy the cutest?
And, this beauty is in my garden. I so love fuchias.
