Operation Write Home‘s (OWH) midweek challenges took a short vacation in September but they’re back in swing in October! This week’s midweek throwdown is to make a card that is easy to make in multiples. It is a VERY rare occurrence that I make a card for OWH that isn’t a multiple, so this is an easy challenge for me!
Lately I’ve been exploring the world of digital images. I’m very comfortable with computers so tinkering with digital images is fun for me. The birds on a wire image is repeated 3 times here. The middle line is flipped horizontally and each line is tilted a bit, this way and that, to give it a bit more interest. The greeting was added before it was printed. I could fit four card fronts on a page, so it’s instantly multiples! I printed two pages and had fronts for eight cards! After it was mounted, I used some glossy accents on a few of the birds to give the card some dimension and shine.
This card has a white base and, although the photo doesn’t show it well, a colored layer that coordinates with one of the bird’s colors (each card had a different colored layer). Then the digital layer printed on white paper. The birds on a wire image is a Hero Arts digital file that was purchased from Two Peas in a Bucket, but it appears it is no longer for sale, which is too sad because it’s a fun image! The sentiment is written using the Bradley Hand ITC font.
Hope you have a TERRIFIC day!
