A New Home...

This is my first time to use pre-colored images.  These cuties are from a bundle provided by Kris at Imagine That for a challenge that just ended at Aud Sentiments.  Because I have been out of circulation for awhile, I missed the release date, but I still want to show you the possibilities.
The purple is a handmade envelope to accommodate the odd size I chose to use for my card base of 6 x 4.25.  For my background I ripped strips of paper and then used a lavender Distress Ink and water on the edges.  I printed out two copies each of each of the images I would be using [the igloo, two children and the bear cub].  Since they were all pre-colored I could skip the time consuming coloring [I must admit, this part really felt like cheating for me since coloring with my Copics is so much a part of my card making!]  The images were all fussy cut, sculpted and layered with foam tape to add dimension.  I finished with two of my teammate's word art sentiments - thank you Ginny H!  I can see why the popularity of the pre-colored images have grown - for people who don't like to color - or who are under a tight deadline [or just plain really late like me!]

  12. Great idea to tear the paper and color the edges. It gives it dimension. Very cute images (my favorite is the bear!), great layout, and sculpting brings it to life!
