This week in Courtney's Closet

Here's our little cutie patootie Courtney modeling this week's spectacular outfit. Isn't she just adorable!


Here's the card I made inspired by her sweet outfit:


I didn't have the right colors in my dp stash, so I took a piece of black and white in a pattern that I wanted and scanned it in on the computer. I opened the file in my graphics editing software and changed up the colors to match the RGB codes for Tempting Turquoise and Chocolate Chip and like magic I had some dp from my printer to work with!
I wish I could get this printer to feed the heavier cardstock, but it just wouldn't cooperate today so I settled for plain copy paper and the colors are not as intense as I'd prefer. I might try switching up the colors tomorrow and playing with this again. We'll see.

Thanks for visiting!

Wow... I am in awe of you! I love that you customized it! I have scanned fabrics because I wanted to print them as paper to use in my books or to match what the person was wearing in my photos!

Love your card, that pattern is so fun! And I'm just in awe of you editing the paper on your computer like that!! Does it take a ton of ink to print it out, though? I've always wondered about the digital papers I'm seeing for sale everywhere these days!
