PMS Digi Makeover Challenge DT call

Papermake up stamps has decided to start a weekly challenge focused on the use of digital stamps and that means they need a group of people who love using digital images.  They have provided to adorable images for this call.  One is the AHA heart fairy which i am featuring in my post and the other is Argus the monster with his teddy bear.  You can read all the details about the call on the PMS blog.

Papermakeup stamps would like to know what i like about digital stamps.  I like digital stamps for a variety of reasons. One is that they are very affordable, easily storable on your computer or in my case a flash drive, and most of the best reason is you can make them any size for your project which i believe makes them a better bargain for your money cause it like getting several sizes of the same stamp.   Also quite rencently a few companies have been offering there images in colored versions as well as black and white so for those that may not enjoy the coloring process it a quick size and print and add to your project.

As far as dabbling in different ways to use digi images other then resizing i also recently discovered a new way to color both rubber and digital images it called the no lines technique.  You stamp your image in a light color like pink or a very light blue and once you color it almost looks like you painted your image.  You can do the same with a digi you just light the opacity of the image tell you barely see the lines.  Anyway i babbled on enough about digi images and my love for them.

No lines

On the make it crafty blog one of the gals had a brilliant thought what if you stamped your image in a lighter color then black or printed your digital more faded.  The result is your image almost looks painted.  I choose to use smooches from elisabeth bell and i faded her to 80 percent.  I think i am going to try going lighter next time around.  I do like that end result.  I am entering this card into the bells and whistles anything goes challenge.  Hope you have a great week.
