Candace's First Card

Hi everyone!!

It's Candace here! Today I am sharing one of my very first Meljen's Designs cards using Fancy Little Teapot. This cards has always been a favorite of mine. I just love this teapot image combined with the pretty papers! I especially love the touch of black because it helps the image to pop a little!

I also want to give you a little tip today about adding sentiments to your images. That's the awesome thing about digis - you can resize them, merge them with other digis, and even add your own sentiments! I opened this image up in Photoshop. I normally print my images out by simply using Microsoft Word, but since I wanted to edit the image itself, I needed to use a photo-editing program. I chose a font and typed "thinking of you" and centered it underneath the teapot image. Then, I saved it under a new name. Next, I just printed it out like normal, colored it up, and added it to my card. 

I hope this gives you some ideas on creative ways you can use digi images! 
Have a great day!
