Digi Stamps

Hi everyone! I've been seeing and reading a lot about Digi Stamps lately and decided to give them try. The following are two that I purchased and used Photoshop Elements 5.0 to resize and print out.

This one is Sweet Pea's and they are colored with Copic Markers and blending pen. I used my oval nesties to cut it out and the layer of Bazzill pink cardstock. The blue polka dot designer paper came out of my scrap pile and I used the doily punch by MSC to make the borders on each side. I sponged some blue chalk ink around the sentiment and the Sweet Peas. The sentiment is from Penny Black.

Copic markers were used on this one, too. The background houndstooth is a stamp I just picked up from Impress Rubber Stamps and is stamped with canary ink by colorbox. Green grosgrain ribbon is tied onto the left side and the sentiment is stamped in the lower left hand corner (TAC).

I was surprised at how fun these were to work with. I experimented with watercolor as well, but the ink that I have in my HP printer is from Rapid Refill Ink, and ran a bit. I should've heat set it first. The two images that I purchased are from Sketching Stamper Digi Stamps and you can find them here, and there are several designs to choose from. I look at Digi Stamps as another tool in my arsenal - they'll never replace my rubber stamps, they're just another medium to work with, especially if you like to color like I do!

Have a great day!
