I am going to post everyday this week to see if I can do it. lol Today I bring you a couple cards with the theme of "Fall." Not necessary the season, but the action of falling. I was playing around with some digis and wanted to capture the act of a feather dropping or a boy jumping and the following are what I came up with.
With the feather (not sure where I got this from) I just lightened it up and made it appear to be floating down. I could have added one more feather up above, but for some reason working in 3s worked for me. I lightly colored the leaf and added a cinnament designed by ME!
In order to create this illusion of falling, copy your image 3 times (or how many times you like) in MSWord. Next you want to change the color of two of your images as illustrated below. This change in color makes the image appear that it is just leaving a trail as it falls.
This is the same thing you would do with a rubberstamp. Stamp the image first with enough ink on the pad and then as you go along stamp it on an extra sheet of paper to remove some of the ink before stamping it on your cardstock. Well, anyway this is a neat little trick I discovered (you probably already know about it), but for those of you that didn't know you should give it a try.
Now get to creating...
Remember: There are no mistakes in cardmaking, only opportunities for creativity!
