Tiddly Inks

So I have been doing some playing around with Digi Stamps and Digi Kits for Scrapbooking, when I made my card for the post below (see here) I used lots of digi papers. That had me thinking what else I could create with these papers. I have always printed out digi stamps and colored them in with my Copic Markers. Well, I have been unable to afford the purchase of these wonderful markers for some time now, I started thinking what if I tried coloring the digi in Adobe Photoshop and then using them on cards or in other Digi projects. So this was my first attempt on coloring a digi stamp and this is what it came out looking like.
I used Tiddly Inks Annie Has Pie Digi Stamp, this was her freebee for Thanksgiving but if you happened to miss out she has it for sale on her website, along with some other really cute other digi stamps. You can find the pie in her Yummy Paper Set I just added it onto this image here. Like to hear what you think of the image above I tried to color it in using a smooth shading tool, but this was my first try on it so it is what it is. Open to suggestiongs, please, or maybe if anyone like to know how to do this.

First Watercolor Media Card

This card I made for a friend that is on her way to a better life. She just had the procurer done where they put the band around your inner stomach so you don’t eat as much anymore. She has already lost 25 pounds before she even went in for it; do to all the fasting they had her do! I hope for the best in her transformation and I want her to do good so this card is for her encouragement to start feeling good about herself!
So I have been playing with other Medias to color my Magnolia stamps just like to experiment with other Medias and how they work. So far I have tried Prism color Pencils and they were ok but I just could not get the colors to blind correctly. I will probably try them again before I put the color pencils away! This was my attempt at coloring with Derwent Watercolor Pencils, not to bad if I do say so myself. I really enjoyed this media so much that I actually started working on another card using the Watercolor Pencils too. So we have not seen the last of this media for me! I also used some distress inks with blinder on the edges of my paper. I used my Gypsy along with my Cricut Expression to make lots of the cuts here. I just love all the creativity you can do with the Gypsy! Magnolia stamps are just lovely to make all these projects come alive!

My first Aisle Card

So I made this card for my sister in laws birthday and it was my first attempt to make the aisle cards that stand up for display. I used the Magnolia Tilda Stamp blowing Fairy Dust since it reminded me of Blowing out the candles to make your birthday wish. I also used my Home Decor Cricut Cartridge and my Cuddle Bug for the embossing. I can’t remember what the name of the paper that I used in the background it has little squiggly lines in the back ground like candle smock, I thought it went well with the card. My sister in law got it for my birthday a few years ago and there is not much of it left. I tend to use it a lot… :)
