My printer is on the fritz, and I'm waiting for my new one to arrive. In the meantime I'm not able to print off any new images, so I'm using a few images I had colored some time ago but never made into cards. I also resorted to actually stamping an image, too!
I had merged these image weeks ago. Janie in July and Kai in the Sand can both be purchased separately at Mo's store.
This card gave me fits...nothing went together easily! I planned to make a small pinwheel to place in the upper right corner, but after several failed attempts, I gave up and used the buttons instead.

An Actual Stamp!
I really do prefer digital images for many reasons. This stamp from an SU! set was given to me by a friend of a friend who gave up stamping ( I know! Crazy, huh?!) about a year ago. She gave me tons, most of which were not my taste, so I gave them to the staff at school. I kept this and a few others.
My main problem with stamped images is that they are just way to small! I love digital images because they can be any size you want. They really make much more of a statement and are more fun to color.
Images: SU! Fairy, Digital strawberry cluster and individual berries, Digital sentiment from TLC
Tools: Copics, Prismacolor pencil, Cuttlebug with Embossing folder and Nesties, MS Hydrangea and Doily border punches, Hole punch, Mounting tape, Tacky tape
Embellishments: Ribbon, Pink glitter, Pearl cabochons in white and green
Did you notice my pretty new watermark? I ordered it weeks ago from Karen Giron, but just got up the courage to try adding it to my photos using GIMP, a free photo editing program. After a few frustrating attempts, I was finally able to do it successfully. Now I just have to figure out how to make it a bit darker for light-colored cards.
Thanks for dropping by!
