I “wasted” time today! But I needed new earring cards for my new line of earrings: “The Mermaid In Me”. It feels like I am wasting time when I sit at the computer for an hour or two or THREE! Earring cards are the LITTLE THINGS that add polish and make your earrings a more finished product. I admit I like to play with designing : )
I get digital downloads from Etsy so I wanted to play with a frame I already had.
I love the romance of this frame! So I centered it on a rectangle “new image” so the frame shape was gone and it looks more “artsy”.
I cleaned the edges and turned it into a PNG. Then was time to insert the mermaid image into the cropped rectangle image.
I added “The Mermaid in Me” in my favorite new font.
I have cool photo software that lets you change the hue of the image.
I work backwards sometimes. When I am stuck deciding which colors to use or can’t decide which direction to go I will let the color of the leftover earring cards decide for me as I make something to match the card.
Hopefully I will be happy with these!
