Been playing again

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world...hugs
Sorry to be a party pooper, but I am not enjoying all this heat, bring back lower temperatures say I.....

I've been playing with some of my sunset photographs from a while ago and my cards for today are the result. I am in the process of making a set of 6, these are the first 2. I realise they may not be to everyone's taste, but I am pleased with them :o)

If I remember correctly, the cat and the elephant are from my very old CorelDraw software (bought about 20 years ago) and I converted them in PSP7 (also bought around 20 years ago) to png then in SCAL so I could cut them out on my very old little Cricut.


I opened my sunset photographs in PSP7, then added the animal images and 
shadowed them.
I printed the pics onto Kodak Everyday Picture Paper which is 160 gsm and semigloss.
Black mats are Papermania textured card and the silhouetts are cut from the same card.
Computer generated sentiments cut with SU punches.
I hope you enjoy them as I really enjoyed playing :o)

It's very clever imagery Jacjie, I fine on a PC doing all the normal stuff, but when it come to graphics I'm lost so really admire this work.

Fabulous creations Jackie.. and very cleverly done too! Particularly love the elephant one..

Like you say, we all have very differing tastes (it'd be boring if we didn't!).... but us crafters can appreciate talent in all it's various forms - and like to say so, don't we! LOL!

Hugs
