Mystery Image Challenge #8

Time for the mystery challenge reveal...I thought I had lost my card picture along with the change over for the new computer...after searching for a half hour guess what I found it...lol...This new computer is going to get the best of me before all is said and done...Holy hanna, I can't find a thing on it... Ok so now my blog is going to act up on me as well...sooooooo...here goes.(It won't let me reposition this bad picture of the beautiful image).

Darlene was our lovely hostess and sent this wonderful  D. Morgan image to all of us...as you can above, it is beautiful. The sentiment is part of the image....well.....I had to do some modifying as I didn't do such a good job on coloring the frame.....Rather than beg Darlene for more images I decided to make my image different....



and this is the result.. As you can see I cut out the picture frame and the kittens tails and mounted the picture on very wall paperish looking dsp. (to give the appearance of the kittens sitting on the ledge of the window looking out. I then took and cut out the sentiments and mounted one on the front of the card.....


and the other on the inside. Since the kittens tails were right by the saying I had to cut the sentiment out a bit wonky and then mount it on green paper (like I did with the one on the front). I took some of the wallpaper dsp and cut it into strips to add a bit more to the inside and make it look like it belonged with the outside.
I hope you aren't upset Darlene that I butchered this beautiful image...

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog...I do appreciate it.

Until next time,
Hugs,
Carol

I actually thought about doing it like this! Well, maybe not colored as well, but you know what I mean!

Yours is stunning and I love how you have colored it up!!

too funny...I 'chopped' the sentiment too...three but I'm sure Darlene forgave us:o)

I just love how the hues of green strike you when you first see you awesome card this round!

I too liked the stamp and think that you chose the perfect DP to go with it.

Nice job!!

I love your card--I too thought about cutting out the frame, but I like the cats cut out better! I really, really like the background paper! Way to go!

Who could possibly be upset about your lovely creation, Carol? Cutting out the sentiment is a fantastic idea, and one that I will happily imitate in the future, ha ha! Love the Wallpaper affect with the DP, it's really good. I can't wait until these arrive in my mail box!! Thank you!

Carol, I love the way you colored your image. That was a challenge for me, and yours is amazing! I also love that you separated the sentiment from the image. I thought aboutu doing that, but couldn't figure out how to make it work.

Love it!!!

Hi Carol! Beautiful background DP! I love that you cut out the cats' tails for a 3-D effect and that you decorated the inside with the sentiment & DP! I'm sure there will be no scolding by the hostess over your lovely creation! :-D
