March 22, 2013 Washin'Board

Doodle Pantry Washin Board, DoodlePantry pattern paper, spellbinders circles, Kraft cs, Koh-I-Noor Pencils, Spica glitter pen, twine from stash

I DID IT!!!  I "merged" two images into one - I was totally stumped on how to use PNG images until one of my besties Pat showed me how to work with the Png images plus some hints from the wonderful design team I am so lucky to be a part of Doodle Pantry DT, so with lots of patience they all "walked" me through this process.  PNG images are transparent - well sort of - and you can layer with PNG images so for my first try I was so HAPPY with the outcome.  Printed off a black/white image WashinBoard colored it with my Koh-I-Noor pencils blended with OMS but out with spellbinders and my card was ready to put together.  I have a friend that spends 6 months in AZ and is due to return next week so I want this to be in her mailbox when she gets home.

Yay...way to go...it was easy, wasn't it? It looks great. I love the way your wash tub is colored. It really looks like wood. I'm so wrapped up in my Copics, that I forget colored pencils. Thanks for the reminder!
