Good morning! Today is Crafty Secret's design team challenge and linky party!
I have a mini tutorial also to share with you.
I created this fun garden boot card from the Garden Style Digital collection using Photoshop. I will show you how to "color" it in using your computer. I even changed the boot itself from black to brown. ;)
I also added some Shrinky Dink Charms.
And a flower using a digital paper and my Spellbinder's die.
I use Photoshop Elements 11. You can open up multiple files, like I did here. I opened the designer paper and simply clicked and dragged the boots right on top of it. You can size it as large as you want.
I clicked the eye dropper tool to "select" the pink color of the designer paper to fill in some of the flowers. Then click the bucket and fill it in.
You can also select colors by clicking on the color box in the lower left hand box, and you will get a zillion color choices. Just use your eye dropper to select the color you desire. And once again fill in the areas you want to color.
One word of advice, be sure the area you are filling in is completely closed in, or the fill bucket will fill outside of the desired area. If you have an area that is not closed, simply click on your pencil and draw the line closed. I usually zoom in really close, so I can see what I am doing.
Here is what it looked like when I printed it. (8x10) I hand cut it, scored it down the middle, and my card was created!
