Ride a White Swan










































This is my creation for The Play Date Cafe Challenge PDCC47.  I decided to go digital for a change (not sure why as it takes me forever!) and this is the result.  I started with a photo of a swan I took earlier in the year during a dog walk and it reminded me of a song by Marc Bolan and T Rex (my favourite band of the 70s).  The pretty gothic gal is from a digital image sheet by Itkupilli (love that hat) who also does some very colourful designs.  Speaking of colour, I do like the combination in this week's challenge and found the photo and PDCC team's creations particularly inspiring.  I have other ideas which I may just try out too.

Neat design! I haven't tried digital yet, I may have to as it looks like that's the way of the future! Thanks for playing along with us this week at the Play Date Cafe!

OK, I now have Marc Bolan stuck on my head radio, but at least It's driven out "The Holly & The Ivy" :D

Cool selection of colours on the different lettering :)

This is very cool! I've always wanted to do more of digital-there's so many great images out there. I love this one in BW with just the splash of the other challenge colors.
