Days Gone By

I want to share another restored photograph with you but before I do I have a card to show you.

The image used is a digi stamp called Petticoats Three by Just Inklined it is more of a pencil line that a thick solid line and it gives a softer finish. Don't you just love the vintage images?

I also used the most scrumptious ribbon from Ribbon Carousel this one is a two sided satin in silver and black. I pushed one of the prima pins through the ribbon knot.

So now on to the restored photograph.

This is the original photo.

And this is the restored and coloured Photo.

I know a few of you have asked what software I used, I used a combination of Coral Paint Shop pro and also Coral Draw graphic Suit. I don’t want any of you to rush out and buy it as you do need to know what you are doing as you need to use lots of different tools settings and shadings to get to this stage, it isn’t just a push of a button you have to colour each section individually.

Just to showcase the finished image I had to play and do a scrapbook layout.

Hi Jak it's great,and the colour is just right. I can't remember whose dog this is. I have been trying to think back and wonder if it was our Kittys. I will take a copy and see if it was theirs. Funny isn't it i can't say i have noticed it before. Love mam xxx

Hi Jak, May I ask you something? Do you print off your Scrap-pages? If so how? I mean they are 12 x 12 right so how does that work? Thanks I'd be curious to know. Sally-Ann
