S2GSC23 - Paint the Town RED!

Welcome! It's time for another Twisted Thursday sketch with a twist. This week's twist is to Paint the Town RED! It's easy to play along with us:
  • Just make a card following today's sketch and use red as the main color on your creation! (You are not required to use S2G stamps, but we would love to see them if you have them!)
  • Post your card to your blog/online gallery. Then go to the S2G Challenge Blog and post a direct link to your card using Mr. Linky. (Use keywords S2GSC23 and shirleys2girls.)
  • You have a whole week to submit a card; deadline for submission is Wednesday, Sept. 2, at midnight.
Besides clear art stamps, did you know that Shirley's 2 Girls also sells both digital images as well as digital papers? The best part is that the whole line of stamps, digi images and digi paper can be mixed and matched!
For my card, I used a sheet of digi paper from the S2G Spring Fancies line (DGP1) for my background. Since this week's twist was to use red as the main color, I gave Photoshop a try at changing the original colors of my digi paper to red and presto it worked... instant matching paper in the colors I needed! What a great advantage of digital papers!!
For my main image, I used a whimsical S2G digi image called View (DG12). I also used another S2G digi image, Come Fly with Me (DG48), to make my embellishment. What a fun card to make. Sure hope you share in the fun and give this challenge a try! Have a great day!!
Supplies: Stamps - S2G digital images View (DG12) and Come Fly with Me (DG48); Paper - S2G Spring Fancies digi digi papers (DGP1), SU! basic black, PTI select white, generic white base, a scrap of MM gingham DP; Ink - Copic markers; Accessories - Flower Soft, Recollections black epoxy stickers, goggly eye, silver rhinestone, Staples key tag, and gingham ribbon from Mikes.

  14. Shut UP!! You changed the colors?! Girl, that is just plain GENIUS!! How the heck did you do that? I've always wanted to change the color of some of the digi papers myself, but didn't have the first clue how to do it!! I'd love a brief tutorial, if you feel up to it! Love, love, love this card - you blow me away!!

    Hugs!
