I thought I would try designing a card but in the end I turned it into a digital ATC! Well ideas do like to have the freedom to change!
I’ve used several layers of background papers added as shapes and then stretched to fit. I then changed the opacity of the shapes to build up the background texture.
I spent my $10 promotion code that came with the software at the Dollar Store (last of the big spenders me!) and got some lovely kits including the Newspaper Paper pack, Morning Hush Paper pack and Grid Overlay that make up the background
The butterflies came from the free Spring It On Extras kit and the buttons are in the My Heritage Pack from the Dollar store. I think the swirl came with the software under the Christmas section and the sentiment was also with the software under Memories.
So you can see I’m still having fun playing with this software. I’ve got a whole catalogue of digital papers and embellishments that I’ve accumulated over the years and the great thing is I can use them all even though they come from other places – so that is cool.
The only thing I do miss when using the My Memories Suite software is the ability to manipulate layers and change colours more directly, I would also like to have a drawing tool, but then I am a bit of a Photoshop fanatic. However, for an easy-to-use crafting software for anyone not wanting to spend hours (and hours, oh yeah- I’ve been there!) scratching their head wondering how to do things then My Memories Suite is excellent.
Catch you later.
