The journey begins

This is my very first challenge card for Mo's digital challenge blog. It is all about mo's fabulous digital stamps and creating fun cards with them. This weeks challenge was to make a masculine card..which we no are all too hard to do. She has a lot of great masculine images in her shop..Click here to take a look! If you get a chance, click here and check out her blog and see what a great job the design team did with this weeks challenge!

For my card I used one of my favorite digital stamps Captain Hugh and the matching pirate stuff set. I used photoshop to remove any background and made it a white fill to layer all the pieces together. If you don't know how, just use a magnetic lasso around the image, inverse the image and erase the background. This leaves your image to "save as" a png file. You can then layer it without having the rest of the images show through. Never save over your original image, this way you always have it. You can always make a copy of your image before you begin just to make sure!
