March ATC Challenge at Bella Creations

Here is my submission for Helene's Challenge 
this month 
Here are the images provided by LeAnne from Gecko Galz
(she is just too sweet...letting us use these great images). that really isn't my color scheme......but hey...that is why they call it a challenge (of course once I finished my ATC...I changed my mind and now love the background).  I do LOVE this sweet little clown image she provided below.
Is she not the cutest thing ever?
I am pretty proud of myself...because my ATC is Digital.
I altered all the images in GIMP.  You will see a lot of the images
that I have altered from Karen the
I will just post the photos of the ones that I just found today to make my ATC complete.  The rest of her original images can be found in my older posts.
I used GIMP to select one of the wings below.
Look at this cute image below.
First, I used GIMP to get rid of everything and touch up the mushroom.
I then used my Silhouette SD Studio program to flip the original background and girl images (used Gimp to create a transparent page..and get rid of the background around the girl clown)..just to be different.
I added some of my favorite Graphic Fairy Roses and White flowers..and leaves (of course).  Here is what I came up with.
It says....LOL.."Come play with me in my Scrap Shroom"...I thought that was pretty funny.
Since I did use my Silhouette SD, I will be able to cut out all these little details and make them more "textured."  I am so happy with how this turned out.  I believe this is my first ATC that has been made with altered art...and not just painted.  
So...come and join me in my "Scrap Shroom" over at Bellas.
Thanks for visiting!
