Card Design: From the Heart Stamps October Challenge
It is time to post my project for the October, From the Heart Stamps (FTHS) progressive stamp of the month challenge.  In order to enter the progressive challenge, you must either have received the latest image by having participated in the previous month or you can buy the stamp for the current month's challenge.  Everyone who enters and follows the rules is a winner because you automatically get the stamp for the next month's challenge.  Stop by the site and check out the rules for yourself.  While you are there, have a look around.  They have some really awesome images.

Here are my card and details.  I hope I haven't forgotten anything important...

General Information:
  • This card was put together digitally and then printed out, so that I could colour the image mostly by hand and then assemble it.  It is physically a one layer card even though there are four digital layers.
  • Here is the sketch I used from Sketch Saturday.  I really love this sketch as you can see since it was also used on the card I posted this morning. Once again I just flipped the location of the pennant shape.
Digital Image Details:
  • The image on the front, Apple Market, is available for purchase over at From the Heart Stamps. Click HERE or on the watermarks below to go to its location in the store. It was coloured in with a combination of Copic Markers and digital colouring. Digital credits include:
    • Barrel wood created with a pattern courtesy of Free PSD Files 
    • Clouds created with a pattern courtesy of Webtreats, Etc.
    • Grass was created with a default brush.

    Digital Sentiment Details:
    Paper Products:

    • Card base: Michael's Recollection's Cardstock, white.
    Challenges I am hoping to enter:
    Others I might get it into...
    Thanks for popping by everyone!  I hope you enjoyed my card and post.  I've got one more progressive post to get done so if I can finish the card tonight the I will see you again tomorrow!

    Until then,

    p.s. I'm not exactly sure what is up with the spacing and the size of the bullets.  I've removed the formatting and tried again but it isn't changing.  Hopefully it is just a fluke in this post and not the new Blogger norm.
