Crafting When We Can Challenges 74 - Make your own background

Late again, naughty girl I am.  I've was getting ready for my holiday and realised that it was the weekend for posting the next Challenge.  

Our wonderful Sponsor is

I quickly made up the Challenge post but didn't get time to make my project.  I'm always last minute with my projects, anyhow I have just returned from my week in Norfolk and have put together the following page using a photo I took of my kids in the sea at Cromer.  I used the image Sirena.  I coloured her using CraftArtist 2  with materials from various digikits.  I then created a background by replicating the image and placing it over a faded paper from the kit.

I love how you can use digital images with your software.  I do alot of digital scrapbooking and love to use my images.  Sometimes I colour them and scan them in and other times I use the material as I have with this project.  The mermaid tail is a sequin material to give the impression of shiny scales, her hair is a cork looking material and the skin and lute are crumpled paper, eyebrow details are green crystals.
Now all you have to do is hop over to the Challenge blog and show us your backgrounds and why don't you have a look at the DT call we are having at present, it's a sticky post at the top. See you over there.
