Quick make

Hi, today i want you show you a really quick Squiggle Stamps project using the Birdie Tag digital stamp, which took around an hour to make from start to finish. One of the great things about digital stamps is not only that you can print them any size you choose, you can also colour or paper piece them digitally too. I use Microsoft Digital Image Pro 10 as my editing software but i'm pretty sure you can do this with most photo editing programmes. I opened the image along with some free digital papers from Shabby Princess in my editing programme, then i selected each area using the 'magic wand' and used the 'fill with texture or colour' effect to fill each part with the digital patterned papers which gives a paper pieced look without the fiddly cutting out. Then it was just a case of adding the sentiment, printing them out and sticking them onto mini the cards, which fit into the mini pizza box i also made. I hope this has given you some ideas of more things you can do with your digital stamps, other than just printing them out and colouring them in with your favorite colouring medium.

Hi Tracy,
Hey, how're you doing? These are such fun. Love the image, so cute, but also charming. I'm a bit of a digiphobe myself. I like digi images, but I've never played with software packages. These look so professional. Hope you're keeping well.
Andie xx
