AEI[heart]U

I'm thrilled that I had time today to make a card for the Avery Elle challenge!  Check out this cool inspiration:


Sadly, I don't own any AE stamps, but thankfully they created a digi for this challenge :)  I hope that they don't favor the stamp entries when judging...hehe.




Digis are tough for me- I don't use them often (or ever?).  To create my card, I copied the lanterns into Photoshop and arranged them so they would overlap. Then, I printed them (along with the sentiment) onto white cardstock. I REALLY wanted to watercolor the lanterns, but the paint would make the printer ink run. Instead, I sloppily colored them with pastel-colored Copic markers- definitely not the same effect that watercolor would have had, but I still like it!

Thanks so much for stopping by!
