Everyone Loves to Read..DT Project

Well its that time again :)
My Design Team spot on Redonkulous Designs.
I used this sweet image called Mother and Son. I think it could be used in so many more ways, Little brother Big sister, Babysitter, even teacher.

I see you look a little shocked...its not a card.
I was going to make a book mark, but as you see it turned into more of a tag then a book mark.

Here is a close up of the image.
I coloured this image up with my Copics and my Stampin Up markers :)
The ruler is a stamp that I used, I cut it out and added some distress ink.

I have never claimed to be a photographer of any kind. I get what I get and hope for the best.
But I did notice that my last few cards the photography seem to look a little washed out, so I thought I would again, try to back the project with a white background.
Not sure if it makes a difference.
I do prefer the dark background on my blog though.

A close up of a few of my paper embellishments.

Another close up of the image on the white background.

To check out the other DT's click on their names and I will take you right to them ;)
And Kim, who has the whole shebang.

Onto My Day:
Because this post is going up incredibly early for my taste, my day hasn't even started yet ;)
I am planning on relaxing and taking care of this cold.
But if I am feeling better, I will be doing some book work.

Hope you all had a creative Wednesday :)

Tracy :)

  20. Looks so good Tracy! Love the bookmark idea! Your embellishments are perfect for this image. Love the ABC stamps. Hope you feel better soon. We've had such strange weather in Ottawa (super cold then super hot, and now humid), I think this could be the reason my son, and a lot of people, got this nasty cold! My poor tulips didn't even make it this year. :( I'm hoping this is the last cold of the season. Feel better soon!
