Scanner vs. Photo: Again, which is better to you? I'm trying a different background fabric for the photos.
Now for some details of this card. I took some of my cream colored cardstock and took some lime green tissue paper. I crumpled it up and used Elmer's glue to glue it down. I took a second strip of green tissue paper and did the same thing. I printed out my Sweet N Sassy skunk image and colored it with my Bic, Sharpie, Prismacolor and the sky & clouds with Copic markers. I am pretty proud of the shading I did on the skunk and the tree trunk. I also tried a new technique using the colorless blender to make the clouds. I've been reading the ilikemarkers blog and I used this image to try and put to use some of the teachings. After cutting the image out, I adhered it to a piece of Creative Memories paper to mat it. I punched a couple of slits above the image and put the ribbon thru. Then I got some alphabet stamps and stamped the words "You're Sweet" below the image. I had seen someone else's card with a skunk and similar wording (in fact I got it in a swap months ago).
This card is going to be submitted to several challenges.
