My 1st Dottie/Mojo Monday


Today I decided to download some of the Dottie sets from Charmed Cards and Crafts. I got Christmas and Dress Up Dottie. I am a MAC user so if anyone out there could give me some advice or resizing and printing a better image I would be truly grateful. Spent a good few hours mucking around but this image is still oversized despite the small measurements I put in!!! I used the sketch from this weeks Mojo Monday. The image has been coloured with Copics and all the papers are from my Cosmo Cricket TSV Which I purchased a few weeks ago. The Sentiment and Circles I cut with my SU punches. I just love these punches, they are great and come in various sizes. The flowers in the top corner are die cut. I used 2 different colours folded the petals over on the top layer and added Gold Liquid Pearls to the Centes. Still trying to work on getting a better piccie. I took this under a daylight bulb but still doesn't look true to colour. I do think a decent photo makes all the difference when posting. Will keep trying, practice makes perfect, ot so they say (lol).

Fantastic card Claire, I'm a great Dottie fan and she looks fab on your card. I've not had any experience with Mac PC's so not sure I'd be any help to you with re-sizing your images :( Donna x

Beautiful card Claire and so bright and cheerful. I love the image and your great colouring. Not sure what is happening with your image but I do use a mac at work and am wondering if there is a lot of white space around the image? If there is and you crop it out the image might resize better. Not sure if this helps or even if this is the problem, hopefully it will. Chris x
