DAQ Quirkle Challenge 88 - Wish You Were Here

The Quirkle challenge at Digital Art Quirks this week was hosted by Donna who challenged us to use 1) a butterfly, 2) something yellow and 3) a triangle in our work.

There's no denying I was stumped this week and got caught up in the triangle bit and eventually this is what I produced.

Fonts used : Palsu and Vilma Handwriting.

Make a Moo Or Two - Kiss

The theme at Make a Moo Or Two this week is A Kiss and this is my interpretation.

The statue is one from my own collection of photographs. I added a blue background, duplicated the whole thing and and blended first with multiply and then with a second layer blended with screen. After flattening the whole image I added a posterize filter, followed by an outline filter. Finally I made a drop shadow and added bevel and emboss to give the whole thing a raised edge.

The font is Dakota Handwriting.

Thanks for looking.

Over at Digital Art Quirks the stock photo challenge this week was hosted by Cindy who chose the hands by Straymuse from Stockxchnge.
