Digital part 2...

Ok, I may have found a new addiction here lol! It's fun to be able to sit on the couch watching Grey's Anatomy and design cards using the digital stamps. This may be a little premature, but I'm thinking that I need to get some editing software.... going to have to look into what is best. Any suggestions? I want to be able to edit little parts of stamps, like the colours for example.

In this card I wanted the word 'friends' to be black while the rest of the definition background was grey. In Word there is no way that I know of to change just part of an image, but I'm assuming in an editing software program I could do that right? As you can see, the only thing I could think of to do to acheive what I wanted was to go over the word with a black pen, and it wasn't very successful lol! Ah well, it's all about learning right?!

 I imported and sized the HA Friends Definition and Sunshine Daisy digital stamps (both free at Two Peas!), making the definition grey so the flowers stood out as the focal image. I then printed the design onto kraft and coloured around the flowers with prisma pencils. I went over the word 'friends' with a black pen and inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink.

I cut a piece of watercolour paper as a mat, distressed the edges and ran antique linen around the edges. To finish the card, I tied the ribbon around the panels before adhering them to the card, and then added the three pearls at the top.

Ok, think I'm done for the night now :)

  1. Your card turned out really cute! I'm a baby using these images, too - let us know what you find out.

  2. Love the happy colors on kraft card stock! So rustic and natural...can never tell it is a digie card!! Way to go!

  3. Wow! This turned out great! I have no idea what I am doing when it comes to digital stamps, so, sorry, but I cannot help here! Will definitely be watching how you evolve!
