Tilda Picking Peaches

Morning Peeps,

Can't believe it's Saturday already and my week off has passed me by, can't say I've achieved alot, so many plans as usual that never came into fruition.  Never mind, I've enjoyed not having to do the daily ritual of going to work......

Today's challenge at Make It Colourful is "light source from the top left".  I have used those yummy Peaches of Plenty and Garden Picket Fence from Make it Crafty HERE, these  images can be used to create so many  fabulous scenes combined with all your stamps, I chose an oldie, Tilda picking peaches, thought she could do with some air, lol.  The papers are from the "Spring Flight" Digital papers from Bearly Mine Designs, due to be launched on Tuesday 1st March.

I did my usual technique of inserting the digital fence and peaches of plenty into WORD and working out the positioning of Tilda and then stamping Tilda out onto my card, masked her off before putting the card through the printer.  Thought the positioning worked out a treat.  Zoe has a fab tutorial on her site HERE for Photoshop Elements users and HERE for WORD users.

Here's a close up although disappointed with how light my sky looks in this picture, it's better in reality, honest.  The flowers are a combination from wild orchid crafts and the 99p shop, lol, yes the 99p shop.

Very beautiful Tracy! I love the colors you chose on this detailed scene. Your coloring is stunning and really brings this scene to life! hugs, Angela

Paula (PEP) said...

That is some positioning of the stamp & the digital elements. Love the way the flourish curls up & leads the eye to her hair with a similar kink in it. Nice one. Love your combination of flowers - all summery & the colouring of that fruit is quite luscious.
