It's Thursday and time to play with my Pals over at Pals Paper Arts. I've been anxious to use MDS Toxic Frameable Art from the Digital Designer Template but I really didn't need another picture on my wall.
How could I scale this cute graphic down from 8-1/2" x 11" to use on a card? MDS2 makes it EASY with the new Re-Size function. I resized and printed it on Very Vanilla card Stock, then cropped it with my trimmer.
Why didn't I crop in MDS2? I wanted to use the pieces of spider web and splatters on the inside of the card to pull it all together. The best thing about using a printed graphic element instead of a stamped image? TIME! If I would have colored a stamp like this by hand, I would have easily used up an hour or more. This graphic comes pre-colored and ready to print.
I purposely left the edges of the rosette a little ragged and scrunched the scallop circle a little bit.
There you have it. Give "Hybrid" card making a try. Click on the Nuts & Bolts graphic for a downloadable PDF of supplies. Then, head on over to Pals Paper Arts and play along with us.
Don't be scared….
… give Hybrid a try!
