Just got time to slip in a fun card before I rush off to get the tea. I posted earlier some new images at Delicious Doodles, including this image of Hamish McHaggis.
As it is Robbie Burns' Birthday we here in Scotland are celebrating Burns' Night and eating loads of Haggis - an aquired taste I must add. Being an English 'sassanac' I thought myself and the family had better try fitting in by consuming the native delicacy. My youngest Hazel, is in fact a Scot, as she was born here!
So, I knocked up this quick card this afternoon to celebrate the occasion. It does happen to fit a few challenges too! The layout came from a sketch over at Polka Doodles. I turned it sideways to fit the image better.
The colour theme is from The Secret Crafter's Saturday Challenge, and has an 'inspirational photo':
All the papers are versions of plaid or tartan that I had on the compy anyway. Can't remember where from originally, I think I may have scanned them in myself a while back. I converted the colour version into a black and white greyscale in photoshop, and then made it the colour I wanted when I dropped it into my page-makeup programme.
The image is coloured with watercolour pencils and layered with foam pads. Last thing I did was add a couple of tartan bows, a wee one to Hamish, and a bigger one at the top. Must admit, Hamish does look a bit like a turd!!!! Eeeeaauuuuuww!! Ah well, never mind. It was supposed to be a bit of fun after all. . .!!
