Back to my photographs, Christmas 7 and 8

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world and that you haven't been adversely affected by the wild weather...hugs

I am giving the bits boxes a little rest and going back to my photographs for a  while.  I have resurrected some of my old robin photographs, this one being taken at Attenborough Nature Reserve some years ago :)



 Both cards identical except for the matting colour, which I think makes them look quite different!
Base cards are my usual white linencard, folded and cut to 6x6.
I opend the photograph in Photoshop Elements 5 and used the cookie cutter tool twice to create the frame, once as is, then again in red.
Computer generated sentiment using the Smarty Pants font.
That's really all there is to them :o)

Isn't it amazing how different the matting makes them look Jackie, but both equally attractive.

Love these Jackie!! I will have to have more of a look through Photoshop Elements.. I tend to only use it for three things - inserting my watermark, making a nice soft edge, and using the sparkle tool!
