Thanks for stopping in today. Today's card is made from image 2( or part of it) in the CDAC Progressive Freebie Challenges. This challenge runs April 1 - June 30. The image is courtesy of Back To Paper. Image 1 and the card I made can be viewed here
It's seems that lately I have been thinking, or maybe I should say seeing, outside the box. Lately, when I see an image I also see other ways to use the image, or part of it, in a different setting than it was intended for.
For instance, I received this image of a few clouds with a rainbow in between..
OK, yes I saw the obvious, however, I wondered if the larger cloud could be used for...............
icing on a cupcake????
I used the cloud for the icing, colored it and added glitter. I hand drew the cupcake base then penciled in and scored the lines for the cupcake paper folds and colored it. I made sure to leave a little of the cake part showing and colored that area a brownish color. That candle, well, its a piece of card stock rolled into a very small tube. Next I added glue oozing down the front it and let it dry. Then I colored the dried glue with a white pen. Used bakers twine for the wick and added a little black to the tip to make it look as if the candle had been lit.
I found a panel that had been punched and was patiently waiting to be used. Added a back to the panel, used some DP and printed the sentiment out from my computer. The cupcake has a soft bend in it to give a 3-d effect. So I was able to go from a cloud sans the rainbow, to a cupcake in short order. Bet you can too. LOL.
Next time you see a stamp or a digital image look closely, you may see another way to use it other than the obvious.
Have a great day,
