Stamping/digital/photography combination




Okay, so my husband says "What on EARTH are you DOING "in there" all day!" He'd never understand that, all because of Nancy's Gothic Arch challenges, I've been playing with this for HOURS! (lol) This week's challenge, as selected by Linda, is "Moon." The arch is a photo shared by a friend, taken in Ireland when she was there on a cycling tour. I'll be using this a LOT. The blue-moon-and-water image was found on the 'net. I digitally selected the colour and added that colour as a base to the collage. I added the text and the stars and the music collage in the upper right corner digitally. I uaed Auto FX to "acidify" the edges of the blue. Then I printed it and Staz-On-stamped with this lovely Tin Can Mail stamp, which seemed to go with the "blue mood" of the whole thing.

Nancy, I'm in the dog-house with my husband, but this was such FUN!

You can see LOTS more from this challenge on TwoPeas.

this is beautiful and what a great combo of media - do you where the arch is in Ire. It looks a bit like St Mary's Catheral in Limerick??? but it could be anywhere. Cheers, Carmel x
