Bee Crafty #53 - Doing the digi Chop

** Please scroll down for Paper Pretties post **

Hello again,

This is my 2nd post of the day.  It's August 1st so that means it's time for a new monthly challenge at Bee Crafty and this month we're asking you to find another way to use a digi - chop it up, find another element in the image to focus on.  Take a look...

Here's the image that I started with...

And here's my card....

As you can see, I focused in on the basket.  I did this by importing Whimsical Girl Heart Garden into my photo editing software (I use paint dot net).  I drew a crop box around the basket and then with the white paint brush I "erased" what I didn't want.  Then did a save as, naming it the same name with altered behind it.  Now, just a word on altering digi images.  I'm sure everyone knows better, but please respect the artist.  If you alter their image, give credit back to the artist and do not attempt to sell this as your own image.  As I said, I know you know better - but still needed to be mentioned.

Card stock: Neenah Classic Crest, Lovely Lilac, Mellow Moss, Turquoise
Paper: Striped (unk)
Copics: B23, BG01, BG05, E34, E37, YG03, YG06
Tools: Oval Cutter (CM), Scalloped Oval (Nesties), Scallop border punch (SU!)
Embellishments: white grosgrain ribbon (Offray)
Stamps/Ink: Sentiment from Springtime Cocoa (SNSS), Tuxedo Black (Momento)

Speaking of giving credit where credit is due - I used a fabulous sketch from Card Patterns to create this card.

Thanks for visiting again!
