This has been a fun little project -- a fabric postcard in decidedly unnatural colors! We (members of my sit and sew group) each picked one or more vintage images from the "Dancing Poppies" collage sheet by ArtChix to be used in an item to be shown at our September meeting. I picked a seed packet, and since I have the original file, I can play in digital land!
I created a 4" x 6" postcard blank in PSE 8.
Layer 1 is a mint-green leafy digital scrapbook paper from Designer Digitals.
Layer 2 is the seed packet image, cropped. I applied the "exclusion" blending mode, and the colors got oh, so cool! Not a bit of red in sight.
Layer 3 is a brush with vintage handwriting from Scrap Artist in a color selected from the image.
The image is printed on photofabric and ready for embellishment and backing with fast2fuse. Not too bad for a hour's work on a night when most of my brain cells were elsewhere!
