Thankful Femme Card

Isn't she cute????  Another beauty that I made from the new Femme kits by the wonderful Arty Pants Digital Stamps designer!!!  For this one I used bits of the following sets:

The Sentiment came from her Thanksgiving Sentiments Digital Stamps .

I created the She Art/Doll in my photo editing software (Photoshop CS6). The doll stamps are amazing. They are layered files so it is easy to clip papers to the body, dress, hair, etc.  I also used several stamps from the different collections like you would rubons in "real" paper designing.

Once I had the girl the way I wanted her, I saved her as a .png file.  I simply dragged that file into my Silhouette Software and resized her to fit my card layout.  I also dragged papers from the Femme kits into the shapes I had laid out in the Silhouette Software for the card base and elements.  Same with the sentiment, I just dragged that over, placed it and resized it.

I traced the doll to cut around her, then sent everything to my print and cut!  Love that feature on my Silhouette!!  Since I had everything cut as individual parts of the card, I could apply inks to edges to give it some definition. I also used pens, India inks and Caran d"ache Neocolor II wax crayons to give the doll some character.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
