I Want Ice Cream
Well what I really want is ice cream weather. This Summer is just not fair! looking out of my craftroom window, the rain is hammering on the glass and the wind is howling, it should be I want hot chocolate.
All that aside ,I still wanted to make a Summery card with ice cream and icecream colours.
When I was first given an old pc , many moons ago,I was very uninterested, my brother the computer pro,gave me 2 software discs,1 was Scrabble (I love board games and words), the other paintshop pro. He said they would appeal to me and using them I would develop good mouse control. He was right on both accounts.
I used to do a lot of computer crafting and making hybrid digi cards,well ink was expensive so I stopped, but recently I've found cheap ink that works and some great digi kits ,so my hybrids are back.
My card is made using Sweet shoppe design digi kit called I scream for ice cream, this kit is in the sale, and very reasonable and of course instant. All my designing and planning is done on paint shop pro 8. I'm very familiar with this soft ware, it has a drop shadow feature to add dimension too, but use what ever soft ware that works for you.
Some of the elements I have cut out and raised with foam pads. I've added quickie glue and glamour dust, for a touch of sparkly sherbet effect and added tiny gems and a real button centre to my digi bow.
I had great fun making this card,and if you have a printer and suitable soft ware , I urge you to give hybrid digi's a go..
