New McMahon Five Designs Release


Sometimes when I select one of the fabulous digital images to showcase I get just a little stumped on how am I going to bring the image alive.  How am I going to make it look what is in my mind’s eye.  Well the image I chose really was a new challenge for me.  And the reason for that is I always need a sentiment in my mind to go with the image.  The name of the image is Jenna and the artist who created Jenna is Jeni.  I really wanted to make Jeni proud of her image and how I presented it on paper.  Detailed information about my card is below the photos.


Jenna Acrylic Stamp $2.38

The sentiment reads: I only think of you on two occasions day and night!

Jenna is colored with Copic markers (skin and hair) and Prisma Colored Pencils.(Dress).  The moon is an image I found online and created a .png file and pasted it on the card using Paint Shop Pro (PSP).  The three shades of the sky were created in PSP too.  The grass and dirt were applied with Prisma Colored Pencils (Gamsol technique).  The papers are from a stack I bought probably about 2 years ago and rarely used by called Patterned Paper, Stickers, & Punch-Out Pack – Bright (I am not sure if it is still available).  It was purchased at Wal Mart.  The butterfly is from a die cut made by Cheery Lynn Designs (D130 Butterfly Bundles – Set of 7). The flowers around the butterfly and in the corners were punched out using the Retro Flower Punch (highlighted with Stickles Glitter Glue).  The cut flowers Near the image are from the Silhouette Store called Three Doodled Flowers by Snapdragon Snippets LLC (also highlighted with Stickles Glitter Glue).  The inside of the card repeats the same color themed paper and added dew drops in green to the corners.  The corners were cut from 1-1/2 inches squares cut diagonally and I used the Corner Chopper (Stub by Crop-A-Dile).
