Mo's Digital Pencil Challenge --- Merge It!
Mo's challenge this week is to merge two (or more) images and the DT has adorable and amazing examples over at the challenge blog. Now, I use Photoshop for my photography processing and have done some amazing things with the tools it offers. But, for the life of me, I freeze up when it comes to layers, which is what I needed to use to merge digital images. After much crying and gnashing of teeth (well, let's just say it wasn't fun anymore) I placed the images of those fabulous teenage girls on a 9"x4" panel and made more of a collage than a merge.
Help: Anyone with a tutorial out there??
Anyway, I inserted a vertical banner "Girl Talk" when I created the collage then colored these beauties with my Copics. That was the fun part! The card is very simple in embellishments with just three flowers from Prima. The border punch is MS pansies which I also used on a scrap of Making Memories Flower Patch. The dp was my inspiration for the colors on the girls' outfits.
It might not be a merge, but I do like the look so I printed out a few more panels of other images to use later. No matter what the challenge, I do so love to color Mo's images! In fact, today I will have a second post, a special father's day card.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope your week is going great.
