Divine Diva Inspiration Challenge #18
I finished the painting last week--not exactly last minute, but close. The original is 8" x 8" and is done with Prismacolor pencils on Stonehenge paper. I scanned it and then used every single one of my Photoshop skills (a few of them aquired just for the occasion) to get the greens and reds to match the original. Then I reduced the image to about 3" x 4" and printed it on some good quality, heavyweight drawing paper. I needed a very simple layout because I had a bunch of these to make in a very short time period so I went with the oval focal point and red background from the inspiration piece.
So here you have it...my favorite Christmas card ever:
As always, everyone is invited to play along in the Divine Diva challenges, and if you do, please link your creation here. If you upload to PCP or SC, use the keyword DDIC18. For even more inspiration, please visit the other Divine Divas: Anne, Chris, Lori, Julie, and Kerri
Have a great day, and join us if you can!
