Challenge 139

Welcome back to the IKEsWORLD challenges :)  do pop on over to IKEsWORLD to join in the challenge, it is always so much fun and  Ike produces the most amazing stamps, everything from off the wall to cute and fluffy :) :) :)

WOW - December already, where has 2020 gone too.  It has certainly been a strange, hard and life changing year so fingers crossed 2021 is much calmer.  Anyway folks, wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  This is the last Ike's World challenge for this year'

For my card I used the image 'Mother', an adorable realistic image of mother and baby that just seeps emotion.  The papers used are Gelli printed and perfect for working with this image on a digital level.  I spent a day a while ago using up lots of A4 paper that I had printed recipes on for attempting to make dinner. The ones that we suitable to be eaten were then transferred to my laptop and instead of throwing all the papers away I raked out the acrylic paint and had a ball lol.  I was so pleased with how they turned out I then scanned them all so I would have a digital version too.  I created the card in Photoshop using several overlay techniques to get the effect I wanted - the image to be clearly visible but at the same time be part of the background.  In the end I added an oil painting effect to the image to give it a different texture.
IKEsART is having a sale throughout December with a massive 60% off - time to grab some awesome digital images folks :) 

I am entering this project into the following challenges:-
