Cider anyone?

Hello! Hope you're well :)
I had a little play with my digis for today's inspiration card for From The Heart Stamps.
I asked Faith for permission to use images from 2 different digis so that I could make this card.
Thank you Faith, for allowing me to do this xx
IMPORTANT : ALWAYS ask for permission from the copyright holder, BEFORE altering any image(s).

I could have printed the images out as they are and cut out the apples and each bottle from their surrounding images, but, wanting to prevent as much waste as possible, I asked Faith if it would be ok to do it this way instead.
Faith allows anything that you are able to do with a physical stamp, so in this instance, if the digis had been in rubber I could have inked just the bucket, stamped it, masked it, then inked and stamped just the bottle from the other image.
Digi's however, give you the option to resize and flip (mirror) your images so that they work really well together ;)

So, I merged together the bottle (x3) from Birdbrain Brew, with the apple bucket from Apple Market to make a cider themed birthday card.
I coloured my merged image with promarkers, then fussy cut it out. Also, although you can't tell in the photo, I added Glossy Accents to the bottles, apples and to the metal trim and handles of the bucket. Looks really good IRL, pity my camera skills are a bit naff eh?
The sentiment is from another FTHS set, Birthday Brew.
The papers are called Apple Picking, and are from an Etsy seller, Bitsy Clips.

  1. Never tried merging images . That's way over my head in technical terms. Do love a glass of cider though being my favourite tipple. I love this card. Hugs Mrs A.

    1. I'm sure you'd be able to do it, it's just layering really, then merging to one final layer before printing. Faye would know, and could show you ;)
      & Thanks xx
