Digital stamping!


Recently I have been trying to improve my skills with digital images, I found this pretty Petunia image over at Tiffany Doodles and it was perfect to play around with. I have opened the image in word and added a background to it before printing it out and colouring with copics.  I have also added a bit if shimmer to the flower centers before adding a copic coloured pearl.  I also decided to cut the flower image slightly larger than the card for a bit more interest.  

 Here is a more traditional card that I have made for the Hero Arts challenge this month. I decided to have a go at the monochromatic look with just the white and some Old Paper distress ink.
 I am looking forward to next week as its half term, hopefully time for lots of crafting. Have a great Bank Holiday weekend.

These are really pretty Sally. Love the digi background and the petunia. The monochromatic card is beautiful too. I espcially like the texture of the the background and the framing.

Hi Sally! I love the image on your first card, so beautifully coloured in! I have no idea how you added a background behind your image, you are way ahead of me here! Love, love your second card! I never knew that distress ink was so beautiful! It gives the card such an antique look, I really like it! Your flower is so beautiful!

I love both of these Sally. Love the way you extended the panel behind the card on the first one. The second is so elegant in the white and creamy ink.
