Thinking About Valentines

Valentines is roughly a month away now so I have been experimenting with a little layout Inspiration for the blog this afternoon... You can make a totally unique card by combining elements from a mix of digikits and adding your own edits and finishing touches. 

For the layout you see below I chose two of the digikits in my current' Algera Designs' collection, they were the Eclectic & Projection digikits. Working in Craft Artist 2 Software I cropped one of the papers to a heart shape to create a central topper adding shadow for lift.  Then layered flowers and a mix of elements for decoration. Font used Firenze SF on the tag.  

Additional effects were added including transparency and blends on the top layer for some pretty and mixed colour changes. The final layout combines different textures and tones giving it a slightly shabby rustic look.
The next stage once printed will be to add some lovely distress inks and some beautiful organza ribbon to complete. This may well be a 'To be continued' as I can't wait to see what this will look like and need to pop out tomorrow to get a few craft supplies so I can show you the finished project in a future post.
