Inspire Me Monday: Digital Chalkboard Sunflowers

Hello Power Poppy fans!  I'm Allison Cope and I'm your hostess for Inspire Me Monday today.

Today I thought I'd share with you a quick video tutorial on how to create a printed back ground for your digital stamps.

I am featuring the brand new digital stamp set, "Sunflower Power" today.

For my particular tutorial, I will be using the Photoshop SC3 program to do all of my digital creations in but this can be achieved in other programs that you may have at home.

Join me today by grabbing a nice cuppa joe or a cold summery lemonade and find out how to create a chalkboard back ground for your digital images.

Here's one final gander at my final card creation using the digital image and back ground we created...

Here's a close up that shows I added some Copic Marker made shadows behind my image to give it more depth...

Thanks for joining me today!  I hope I was able to help you learn a new trick or two when it comes to your digital stamp images.  For more digital images offered here at Power Poppy, check THIS out here!

Happy digital creating everyone!

Absolutely beautiful against chalkboard black! Love the country feel here and it qualifies for "Shabby Chic"!
