Here is a card I made using my newly purchased digital "stamp" from Digital Stamp Oasis. This company was started by my new friend and blogging buddy Ellie and the images are her husband's art work! Isn't that the coolest collaboration? Please be sure to check out their shop at HERE Etsy.com
Digital is really the fastest growing trend in stamping and cardmaking and it makes sense; the images are affordable and stored on your computer instead of in a drawer. Plus you can make them any size you want. Digital Stamp Oasis's images were sent to me in an e-mail, then saved to my hard drive and when I was ready to use them I just opened up the file with MS Picture Manager and printed it onto Whisper White card stock! I was SO excited when the ink didn't smear, smudge or run with my Copics. YAY!!
Speaking of digital, I am currently working on a creation using products downloaded from Matahati Designs for my first Creative Team design! So, stay tuned!
Also want to mention that I made Suzie Squirrel's dress polka-dotted by coloring it and then tapping my colorless blender over it. This was Beate's technique featured in SCS's Weekly Inkling.
