Going Green!

This week at Corrosive Challenges, we are going green! That's right -we want to see GREEN in your artwork~ maybe even a little St. Patty's Day artwork!

We have a new sponsor for March - Digis with Attitude. I chose Tabatha and Tony the tigers to work with but you'll notice, Tony is missing - take a look:


This is one of the great things about digi images - you can alter them!  So in Photoshop, I simply "erased" Tony and I had this adorable gal left. And the card itself is completely digital!! That's right - no paper used here. Perfect for an email greeting (in this case, for a forgotten birthday - yep, my bad~ lol).

If you haven't tried to create a digital card, it is so much fun! I started with a piece of digi paper (which had no green in it, by the way - I recolored part so I had my green). To it I added a pink mat layer and my image which I also colored in Photoshop. Just pick the colors you like and then use the paint bucket tool to fill in. Easy peasy. The scrolly frame and the buttons are digital elements I found around the web at digi sites and were free! My kind of price! A little text and my card is all ready to be attached to an email and sent on its way.

I hope you enjoyed today's post and would like to play along with our Green theme this week at Corrosive. If you have any questions on creating a digital card, leave me a comment with your email address and I will try to answer as best I can. I'm still a little new to the process but learning! Have a good Sunday~

How cool! This is amazing! I use digital images, of course, but I am not tech savvy enough to create a whole card that way! lol I think I'll stick to my ink and paper for now. ;) Love your sentiment! It goes so well with that expression on her face!

Hey Mary,
Awesome way to have a totally digital card! I'm like Regan - I'm lucky enough to figure out how to download and print out a digi image! I can't tell you how many times I've had to redo them! There is NO way I can figure out how to work with digi papers or other computer generated things for my cards! I'll stick with ink and "real" paper too!
