Luxury Travel

This weeks theme at One Powerful Hour is...

Vacation

Last week I made some ATC's for a Circle of Friends swap. The theme for those was travel. Well, to me one travels to a vacation so I thought this would work.

This is my first ever entirely photoshop/digital piece. All the images I either got from copyright free downloads or had them (stamps). I printed them out and colored them. Then scanned them back into the computer.

When I printed the finished piece out I of course had to add some texture. The bubbles have diamond glaze over them. The car has been painted with sparkling H2O's so it looks more like the finish on an actual car. I filled the water/waves in with glitter and finished it off with flocking on the ships sails.

I can only imaging how much work these would have been if I hand cut all the elements that ended up going onto it. Digital is good for some things. However the feel of this piece was totally different than my usual work b/c it was "flatter". I hope the members of the Circle of Friends think these are okay.
