This dare tied in nicely with a project I have been working on recently. For the last couple of weeks I have been trying to do Warhol style pop art prints using Photoshop. I feel like I've read a zillion tutorials on the web of how to do them and it was driving me potty. So today's dare inspired me to revisit my pop art project, and the insipration link which Rhi provided led me to yet another PS tutorial. Here's the result:
The mini in the picture is mine, although it took (quite) a bit of messing in photoshop to get rid of the background so I could pop art it. I'm still not 100% happy with the effect but it's nearly there. Once I get an image i'm completely happy with I'm going to get it transferred onto a canvas, which is why I started the project in the first place - the dare has been a happy coincidence.
I've kept the card very simple as I wanted the picture to be the main focus. I was toying with the idea of adding a sentitment. "Have a Cooper Birthday" crossed my mind during a moment of cheesiness, but I decided less is more :-) The only other embellishment, the screw head brads, are from Carolyn's.
I promise my next card will not involve a Mini (2 out of 3 cards looks a bit obsessive!).
