Beachy and Amazing card (The Paper Shelter image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

The Paper Shelter has so many gorgeous images and when you purchase them they come in black & white and colour along with backgrounds too. I decided to create 3 cards today with The Paper Shelter images but using different backgrounds to the ones they come with. 

I'm not sure if anyone has tried this technique of adding an image to a background digitally but you just use the PNG image (not JPEG) so that you can add it in front of the background. I used a pre-coloured image for this card.


I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Crafty Catz - anything goes with optional twist: heroes and villains
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper -  anything goes with patterned paper
Creative Inspirations - anything goes  
The Paper Shelter - Holiday time 
Polkadoodles - anything goes wk 28
Simon Says Stamp (Mon) - Life on the ocean waves
Word Art Wednesday - anything goes
Your Next Stamp - sunshine

Thanks so much for dropping by, have a wonderful crafting weekend,

Have a Relaxing Birthday (The Paper Shelter image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

The Paper Shelter has such cute images and when you purchase them they come in black & white and colour along with backgrounds too. This image and background are both from The Paper Shelter but the background actually belongs to a different image, I thought I'd make them more unique by doing this.


I'm not sure if anyone has tried this technique of adding an image to a background digitally but you just use the PNG image (not JPEG) so that you can add it in front of the background. I used a pre-coloured image for this card.
