All green

A couple of weeks ago I was asked by the talented Elisa if I would like to join her design team for I am very proud of this as I am not into stamps or colouring. I have done some in the past but it does not come natural to me. Until I discovered Photoshop, I'm still learning......
Here is my first DT card made with Elisa's beautiful "Shamrock Fairy" which you can buy at

I coloured her in with Photoshop,then used the 8cm punch to cut the image out (it fits perfect in the beaded circles from spellbinders) Ribbon and beads from my box
Base card from Craft Creations
Green card from DCWV, the glitterstack
Spellbinders beaded circles.

Congratulations are very talented and I am sure you will enjoy being on the Design Team. Wow, your colouring in Photoshop is fantastic! I wish I knew how to use Photoshop. I have looked for classes locally but they are during the day and unfortunately work gets in the way!!

Congratulations, that's great news!
Love the on earth do you colour in photoshop? That is beyond me! I'm still trying to figure out how to make an image totally balck and white and not just greyscale which has proved fruitless!
I love the layout and your colourschem id gorgeous!
Apologies for my lack of commenting at the moment, we are having a bit of a mad mothers day rush going on so that is where my evenings disappear to these days!

Welcome to the team, Claire! Love how you colored the image with PS! I'm not very good at coloring either and I love this idea. Now I just need to improve my PS skills. ;)

It is absolutely precious Claire - I am so inspired by your colouring! I often use PSE to colour images, but they don't look half as good as yours!
