This week the designers are showcasing Recessed Window cards. I've seen sneak peeks and oh they are incredible this week!
I have wanted to make a frame out of the line of ants in the Summer Picnic set. I simply used Photoshop to rotate the image and transferred it to a new canvas. The basket has been colored and popped up. The cloth was printed on some vintage Anna Griffin paper and then added to the image. I had printed it and then needed to re-print my center a little smaller. As a result, the cloth was bigger than my picnic basket. So I just added some folds so that it would fit. I actually love the way it looks - very much like a large tablecloth spilling out of the basket in a natural way! I could've re-printed but I love trying to just "make it work" as Tim Gunn would say! Here's a close-up of the basket and an awesome vintage button I could not resist adding to my card!
Be sure to visit the rest of the designers. If you don't, you will be missing out on some seriously gorgeous creations! I think I might say that every week, but it's true every week. Each of these ladies is soooo tremendously talented!!
