Simple but effective

Hi all, for this weeks Squiggle Stamps project i'm going to show you another way to use digital images, (you could do this with rubber too if you use Stazon ink). I printed the gorgeous Tree of Joy digital stamp onto OHP (overhead projector film) using my regular printer, and then coloured the image on the back with Stickles glitter glue. When the Stickles was dry, i then simply cut an aperture in a card blank and stuck the image behind the aperture. It wasn't the easiest card to photograph, but the effect in real life is fabulous.

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.

Passion for Promarkers challenge #72

It's time for a new challenge over at PfP, and this week it's my turn to choose the theme. I have chosen 'recycled', and  would love to see your cards and projects using Promarkers/AquaMarkers, featuring something that you have recycled, it could be fabric,  or a button from a piece of clothing,  maybe some packaging, or anything that was once used for another purpose.
On my card this week i have recycled and old pair of jeans, and made a flower and tag and the buttons are off clothing too. The image is the digital version of Miss Evie - Flower Power from Squiggle Stamps, which is also available in rubber.

This week we are being sponsored by Pink Gem Designs who are offering one lucky winner a stamp of their choice.
