Card Design: Gerda Steiner Designs Progressive Challenge...June

http://gerdasteinerdesigns.com

Hello again!  Man, I thought last month was busy trying to catch up from having been sick most of April.  Boy was I wrong, this past month has been even crazier!  I almost didn't get this card done for two reasons, first was an Internet issue explained in the last post and the second is that when I tried to download the image, my computer thought there was a virus attached and wouldn't download it at all.  Thankfully, Gerda was around and able to send me another copy.  The nerve of my computer thinking this cute little penguin could have been a virus!  A spy maybe, but never a virus! ;)

Anyway, below you will find my entry into the Gerda Steiner Designs Progressive Challenge.  First though, check out the cute penguin that we got to work with this month...

Digital Embellishments: 
  • I have used basic shapes in Photoshop Elements to create matting in behind the sentiment on the inside and the floor.  I also used a basic watercolour brush to create some texture for the floor.
  • The tag and mat on the inside were altered using a layer style from Eyeinspire.
  • I have applied shadow layer styles to give certain elements some depth.  These styles were designed by Sheila Reid, Pixel Scrapper.
