I've been playing with my photographs.....

..... so I didn't realise how fast the days were speeding by :o)
I have long wanted to print my photographs onto linen card to give a textured look to them but neither of my printers like card and make a mess of them! These are very much and experiment but I am quite pleased with the results. I found some heavy paper rather than card and they print okay so I must pop to PDA in the week and see if I can find some more.
Anyhow, these are the results so far, I hope you like them :o)

 This first one is for my daughter Susan who loves CAS and nothing sloppy
Her birthday is not until Wednesday so don't know yet if she likes it, but knowing Susan, she will love it. I usually test my experiments out on her :o)

 Both Susan's card and this 4x4 mini card are cream linen


These last two are white linen card and I had such a struggle getting the printer to accept them, I had to literally push the card through so I won't be printing onto this again, don't want to rist damaging the priters! All of the photographs were opened in PSP11 and feathered. 
 If I manage to get suitable card/paper at PDA then I will be doing some more of these :o)

They're all gorgeous Jackie.... My printer also has a bit of a prob with card... but I do manage to print on 280gsm - it just needs a 'hand' through!! It wants to jump backward and avoid the wheels, I just put my hand on top of the card and don't let it!! hehe

Hugs

What fabulous creations Jackie.

I buy the 270gsm linen from PDA and it runs through my printer fine most of the time, needs a nudge occasionally.

Enjoy the rest of the holiday weekend.
