Totally Flat

When the DT over at Tiddly Inks Blog Challenge issues a challenge, they ISSUE a challenge. This week, the challenge is to create a flat card. Well, no one likes a good challenge better than me. I decided I wanted to see what I could do with Photoshop in creating a card for the challenge, rather than just printing the image on a piece of white cardstock. My knowledge of Photoshop is sadly lacking, but that didn't stop me. I will have to say, I could probably have done this a whole lot faster if I'd been cutting and gluing, but I learned a lot. This is a TOTALLY flat card, and I'm amazed with how well I think it turned out.
This image is appropriately enough called Daddy's Girl and can be found at the Tiddly Inks Store, HERE. She's colored with Copics(thank you Larissa as I used a card you did to help me with the shading). All of the papers used on the card are from The Shabby Princess' Sweet Sprinkles Kit and the word art is from Create with TLC. The only things not computer generated are the doodling marks and the coloring.
