I've used Adobe Photoshop Elements 8.0 (see 8 simple steps at the end of this post) to merge Lemon Shortbread's Butterfly Melody digital stamp with Hannah Lynn's Tulip Sunrise background digital image to share blooming wishes. Here's a closer view of my Copic-filled image.
Bazzill cardstock is layered with Basic Grey June Bug Strawberry Cheesecake patterned paper to create my card. My image is shaped with both Lifestyle Crafts Large Circles and Large Scalloped Circles. A heart ribbon bow accents my "Bloom On!" Prickley Pear stamped sentiment. Zva Creative red rhinestone swirls surround my sentiment with charming sparkle.
A Prima Strawberry Kisses large red flower and Laraine Pearl White large roses are lined with medium and small white roses that I've airbrushed with Copic R24, R39 and R89 to coordinate with my card. Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Iridescent Gold adds slight shimmer to my roses.
Here's a view of the front of my card showing how I've used my merged images . . .
The inside of the card includes a stamped Full Bloom sentiment from Impression Obsession.
