We are being sponsored by Patties Creations. Pattie gave the DT a couple images to play with this week. The image I used is called Swan Love.
I have a tip this week about how to create a soft but colorful background to your image. Stamp (or print) out two images of the same size. Cut one of them out completely and layer over the other image. Then start adding chalk until you have the desired effect. This will keep the chalk from getting on your image you will be adding to your card. To get an even softer look try blending the chalk with your finger using small circles over the chalk. Then simply remove the cut out image.
For the image on my card I used a couple shades of blue and purple for the sky, a couple shade of green and blue for the water and pink, yellow and orange for the sun and reflection on the water.
