Little Miss Bitty Card & Freebies


This is the card I made on my newly cleaned off desk LOL ( actually not so clean anymore ;) )
I made the paper using a digi-stamp background paper tool (see below for details). I used Artweaver to open the background paper PNG ( white flowers on transparent background). I added a green floodfill to the bottom background layer and then I filled the flower-centers on the top flower layer with various colours here and there on the sheet. I realized I didn't have any red on the printed sheet so I coloured with poppy red pencil in some of the centers. I used my sakura quickie glue pen to outline the flowers, leaves, wings and hair and then sprinkled Glamour Dust on it. Quite sparkly! Image and flowers are coloured with pencils and OMS.

You can download the Bitty Flower Background paper Digi-Stamps HERE.



Here is the digi-paper I made and one in baby blue with random white flower centers you can colour in after printing. Click each image to enlarge then save to your hard drive.


You can change the colour of both in graphics software or even in Word by altering the hue. I also recommend Google's free Picasa; it has wizards that let you play with an image's colors in various ways. I hope to have more info or a tutorial on this later. Just remember to save your new papers with a different file name so you don't ruin your originals.

I have enjoyed all the entries in the FSS Freebie Challenge, thanks to all who entered! The contest ends tonight Midnight, and I will be back with the winners after the voting and deliberations. Have a great day!
