Carolines digi images & my photos

Good evening everyone
As well as rubber stamping I also enjoy crafting with CD's & digi images.  A friend - Caroline Rawcliffe of CaroLines has introduced digi images into her products & creates some beautiful silhouette images with many background papers, messages rings & silhouette images.

I have loved Carolines silhouette images since she introduced them as rubber stamps, but recently I found a new way to use these images in their digital form.

I love taking photographs of sunsets, sunrises, cloud formations etc,  If the sky looks different or interesting out comes the camera.  A short while ago I showed Caroline my latest night sky pictures & she wondered what her silhouettes would look like with them.  So I had to try didn't I.

This is one of the pictures.  I took about 6 or 7 - couldn't stop clicking.

The package I use for creating cards etc from my photos is "My Craft Studio".

The first thing to do was to pull the photo into MCS's work area then cut out a portion of the sky in a circle.

Once that was done it was time to add Carolines digi images.  I chose 2 silhouette frames, an owl & a flight of birds.

These are the images I chose.

In the finished image with the branch silhouette I have rotated the branch a little.

Also I had to adjust the size of the birds to fit the silhouette frame - but that is easy in MCS.

Here is the finished result.

Don't they look great?

Thank you Caroline for that inspiration
