I had won second place with my Tiki Hut and one of my prizes was her Just Beachy SVGs. I really enjoyed working with this set. It is put together beautifully and I love all the elements she put in there. So I just had to use them with the next challenge. I tried really hard to just use the challenge colors. I think I did a pretty good job, the only other colors were the yellow sun and the sandy colored base.
After brainstorming ideas, I opened and designed my card in Make the Cut. I put the two chairs and umbrella where I wanted them, make a shadow layer of all three. I then added a square about the size of the card I wanted and welded the shadows with the square. To get the whole card base, I copied the base I had just made, pasted and mirror imaged my copy. Moved over to just touching the other base and weld again. It’s pretty simple to make shaped cards in MTC. Hope I didn’t just confuse you all. Just so you know, the caption did not come with the set. It was a prize given out at the last challenge to all the entrants.
This time around I thought I would also try something different with the pictures. I really hate my homemade photo box. It makes the pictures come out too cold. We have a beautiful back deck with lots and lots of foliage (that’s my new word for weeds) and a Koi pond. Why not make it look rather beachy and sunny?!? We get a lot of evening sun in back so it worked perfect for these pictures. Hopefully, I can keep up the ideas now with the backdrops for my project photos too. Who knew having a blog was so much trouble. ^__^
