Another commission; this one was rather easier than the wedding card I posted previously!
The brief was just for a 60th birthday and dog related.
The background is from the My Craft Studio ‘Occasions’ USB. For anyone who has been watching create and craft over the last few days, you may have noticed that there have been several demonstrations using the My Craft Studio software. I have previously posted items created using both Serif and My Craft Studio however one of the demo’s showed something I had not tried (ooeer) so I thought I would give it a go. The emboss function on the software is what I was playing with; I have used it before but it had not occurred to me to layer the same image over the top to maintain the colour. This is what I have done here and I quite like the result 🙂
The main image is a Mulberry Wood digi-stamp (sourced by Crafters Companion) which I have coloured with my Spectrum Noirs. Very observant people will realise that it is largely the same colour palette as for Barnaby Bear, this is because I really like how the bear turned out, so thought I would use the same again 😉
