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.
