McMahon Five Designs Release 7/2/12

McMahon Five Designs has gone to Monthly Releases for the Summer- it has been a nice break, but I really enjoyed creating this week!

 Studio 313 has released a number of new files today- all are visible on my previous post.

 I had to learn to merge digital images. I was able to move the flourishes and birds and the sentiment  closer together, but still need to learn to 'merge' images to make a scene.
  The birds are layered up on the flourishes already- I printed the images out on Cryogen White and Kraft cardstock. I printed more of the images out on blue cardstock and  fussy cut the birds and 'layered them up' . 

  I sponged some SU Marina Mist on the edges and on the background embossing. I also added some small splatters of Creative Inspirations Sapphire paint - love the special shimmery touch that adds!

  Next, I used some Prima Songbird DSP and left the card CAS....really- I am giving it a try! 

 I used R02 to add color to the jewels and added them to the sentiment panel.  I added a line of stitching to the outside and decided to stop.......  I think this sentiment will be awesome for Graduation cards- I am going to stamp a sentiment about 'soaring' on the inside.

Both are so pretty! Love the way you turned the sentiment panel a little on the first card - and all that blue! On the second card.....really like that die you used, Shelly, and of course the little birds.

Aw sweetie, I think you are doing just fine :) These are great! CAS cards are always fun but for some reason, a challenge for me! Blessings!

It's too bad you don't have a friend who is willing to teach you how to use your software to do the desired image editing! (snark snark)

I do love that second card, though.
