Todays challenge was to try something OUT OF THE BOX ~
well anything computer related is soooooo out of the box for me ~ so i forged ahead and purchased "digital stamps". it took 2 emails and my husbands help to even figure where the dang things were and how to size them.
I LOVE these images from http://whimsiedoodles.blogspot.com/
so my venture into the non rubber, non-cling area has begun.
the image is from WhimsieDoodles, i used nursery papers and then mimicked the cross stitches in the corner.
the image is colored with prisma pencils and gamsol, i was surprised that nothing smudged!
his little buttons are little pearl stickers from Michaels, his white is outlined with a uniball pen, and my ribbon is from scrapbooking store.
so that is my venture dipping my toes into the pool of digital, if you will.
#sorry so long winded#
p.s. i wanted to test the *coloring* so i practiced on plain old computer paper ~ and used it! http://janice-overtherainbow.blogspot.com/

This was a great challenge for you to take on and I think it would be good for me. My printer won't take card stock, so the digis are out for me for now. You've created a lovely card, so homey with wonderful coloring.
