Ballet Slippers

Good morning everyone, our first challenge of the new year starts at Crafty Girls Creations today.

Challenge 12 has the usual theme of 'Anything Goes'

Our sponsor for this challenge is

I have chosen to use a digi stamp called 'Ballet Slippers'.  Such a useful digi stamp that can be used for so many different occasions. 

My project could be used for a card or a scrapbook page as I created it in Serif Craft Artist.

I started by importing the image which I then took into the cutout studio and removed the white parts from the image.  I then chose my two materials which I placed at the back of the work.  I then saved moved it into the embellishments section of the programme.

I changed my page layout to an 8x8 blank template and created my page using items from different digi kits.  I enjoy working with craft artist in this way, just picking which items I want mainly based on the colour scheme I have chosen.

The matting and layering on the digi stamp was created using the shapes and colour picker.

I always save my project in serif and also as a JPG that way I can use my project at any time as a card in the future obviously without the watermark which I have to put on to place on my blog.
