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.

Beware of What Lerks on Halloween Night

I guess I have just added another color for Halloween..red! And why shouldn't it be...blood and guts are always thought of that night! ;D

This nontraditional card is for three challenges:
Allsorts Challenge...spots and stripes
Card Patterns...sketch
Crazy 4 Challenge...Halloween theme

The image used in this challenge is one of Dustin Pikes...I think his images are hilarious and fun to color.
