Digital Card Making with PSP

I love making my own greetings cards and thought that the card challenges would be a lot of fun. I have a lot of paper and pens...and the other things one would need to make great cards. I found myself trying to keep up with what is new on the market... then I realize all the stuff, the papers, glue, and stamps were getting very costly and I was running out of space to store it all.

That is when I decided to make elements for my cards in Paint Shop Pro aka PSP. PSP is a software that I have been teaching myself since version 3. Now using version 13 I have learned that the program can also create images and paint them as well. Light bulb went off...why not use it to make my cards and not just some elements for the cards. And so digital card making began for me...and boy has it saved me money.

This blog now consist of my creations that I have made using nothing but PSP. I found the challenge for me is to teach myself how to meet the different card challenges within PSP.

Well that is how all this digital stuff began...Just thought I share.

1)Each entry must be a new creation based on the daily challenge, and it must be a card.
2)You can enter up to 7 times, one for each day this week, from Sunday - Saturday.
3)To have your entries counted, you must have them posted and linked up by Saturday, September 12th, at 11:59 PM EST.

Well did you get Anyway I do know today is a sketch challenge and you can find the sketch here.

I noticed on the sample cards they were using mask. I have an image of a mask from Mardi Gras so I decided to use it in my design. I took colors from the mask to make the rest of the card. Challenge is met...I hope
