asked me to host the Digital Two Tuesday post by making up a design from this line drawing. I have never done anything like hosting in blogland before so please bare with me while I learn something new.
I flipped the car horizontally so that it was facing out then made it into a stamp. I removed the RENAULT sign. Using a line art of one of Cora's other graphics I then added a gradient color with my magic brush to add a little color. I had gotten the "Reach High" word art from DigiFree freebies but failed to mark who had created this. (If you know who designed it, please let me know so that I can give them credit for all their work!) Please right click on the cards to enlarge them for a closer view. Nouveau art is lovely but I had never worked with it before. I like a challenge and yet I could not come up with anything that looked good. I like Victorian/Vintage fru-fru and found it difficult to get away from that.
So I began to look around at other designers work to see if I could get any inspirations. Sure enough, I found Jak Heath http://crafterskitchen.blogspot.com/ designs were just exactly what I was looking for. She had made a lovely red and black card with line art. (Be sure to go to her posts to see her lovely designs.) I wrote to her and she graciously agreed to allow me to use her "concept" to create this card. She makes such lovely things that I felt honored to use this beautiful design. The orange ribbon was way to bright for my taste so I used a stamp & pad to reduce the brightness then I bunched up the ribbon at the top on a two way tape. I added an orange daisy at the bottom and topped it off with a vintage button.
You MUST see Betty's ----LIGHT OF OUR YOUTH !!! http://blossomsandlace-betty.blogspot.com/ Her concept of this Renault is spectacular!!! I love the lovely ladies that she put in the headlights. Who would have thought to do that except a true artist? It must have taken her hours to create this beauty. Great job, Betty!!!
I hope that you will go to see others who have posted this same design from Digital Two Tuesdays graphics. I must go now and check them out for myself.
P.S. By the way, I am doing MUCH better this week & I do sincerely appreciate all of your sweet comments & expressions of concern. We all have an "off" week & mine was drawn for last week but I look forward to a better week for myself & for you! Thank you!!! Sharon
