Ladybug Girls

     I think I'm getting more practiced (and hopefully better) at merging images.  Before I learned how to do that with .png images (thanks to my bogging buddy, Lynn!), I would place images as close as possible before printing them or I would fussy cut them and overlap them as needed, but my card this morning shows how I overlapped two separate Bugaboo Stamps images to make a single image and then printed. 

I started with the newest sketch from Stella Says Sketch
with the sentiment flipped side to side.
Image printed onto card front
Colored with ProMarkers
Sheer ribbon added to top
Ivy leaves cut from scrap dp w/ Sue Wilson die
Scrap strip of dp added across the ribbon
Sentiment cut w/ CUTplorations dies
3 black pearls added

Fantastic merging of those images Connie. I've been trying to play around more doing that too. I think you have me beat hands down though. LOVE your card!

Cute card. Isn't it fun to learn something new and it actually works? It will make it so much fun to add images without fussy cutting. [Bunny]

Good for you to get more practice with digital images. It is so much easier that cutting and pasting. Your card is so cute and you should be proud. Thanks for sharing them with us at Double D Challenge, Use Your Scraps.

I don’t merge images that often, but it’s really fun, two different images can make up a brand new one that’s never been seen before. Great job! Thanks for joining our challenge at Catch the Bug.

You did an awesome job merging. I have an older photo program so it just depends if I have the time to play and adjust, lol. They look adorable. Love the ivy. Thanks for joining the Catch the Bug Anything Goes Challenge, Lisa Lynn DT.
