I loved the sweet little "Counting Sheep" image by Whimsie Doodles and the color palette was perfect to make a card for my son and daughter-in-love to welcome their first baby later this month.
Working with digital images allows for so many more options, I'm really liking the creative possibilities.
For this card, I opened the image in Microsoft Publisher and sized it to fit my card. Then I printed out 3 images on Neenah Tiara White cardstock.
Here's a little coloring trick I used for the tiny detailed areas: I opened the image in Paint and digitally added custom colors to the clock face, sweet dreams and the hearts, circles and stars on the bottom. Since I don't have a really steady hand to color in the details this gave me really clean color in those tiny parts of the image.
I printed 2 of this colored version. One became the base of my project which was die cut and embossed with Labels Twenty by Spellbinders.
After I colored the rest of the image with Copics I cut out the clock, clock face, the roof part with the sheep and the clouds and stars separately. Everything was layered with foam tape to give dimension.
