Karen's Doodles Challenge 25 - Polka Dots

This week, our challenge hostess Joey at Karen's Doodles Challenge blog has given a challenge to use..................

Polka Dots

I decided to use Karen's Doodles Nutsy Fun Set to make a Swing card.  As you open the card, the center panel swings to reveal another image on the other side.

Using Adobe Photoshop Elements, I sized the images to fit the center panels, then printed them onto Cryogen paper with my inkjet printer.  Copics used:
Nutsy - E21, E33, R21
Acorn - E70, E21, E33, E37
Grass - G40
Present - R81, RV34

The flower is stamped with Shades Brownie dye ink from Sweet Stamps it perfectly matched my card stock.  The flower stamp is from Serendipity and I punched it out with the matching McGill punch.  I airbrushed RV34 to match the card stock.  Finished size is 4.25 x 5.5 inches.  Here are pictures of the card closed for putting into an envelope

and all the way open

Won't you please join in on the fun? You could win....

1st Place - 3 Digi stamps of your choice from Karen's Doodles
