How exciting, and how totally suited to me .... I was invited to join the design team at Wicked Wednesday atc challenge blog. I just know I will LOVE it here, there is a weekly sponsored challenge. So I will get to create with a whole range of different and fabulous images. So excited .... The other dt members are so talented, it will keep me on my toes !
The first challenge was sponsored by Delicious Darkness, and the title was Leo (astrological / zodiac sign). The Delicious Darkness images are so OMG gorgeous, check it out : http://deliciousdarkness2.blogspot.co.uk/. There is also http://deliciousdoodles.blogspot.ca/ for your not-so-dark crafting needs .... LOL.
Here is my first dt sample : drum roll ......

So, how did I transform this fab digital leo image into him tearing his way out .... I did step by step shots :
I started by resizing the image in microsoft word, to be slightly smaller than an atc. I printed it and cut it out. I then added a layer of gel medium. I did this because I knew I wanted to use a glue layer and didn't want the paper to be too porous, or destroy the image if something stuck where is shouldn't have .... Plus it gave the image a sort of eerie feel and a great texture.
