Sketches By Carly #61 - My Heart Pieces Digital Stamps

Hi everyone!! I am so excited to share my card; as this is my first post using a digital stamp that I actually colored myself.  I need a lot of practice; but I felt it wasn't bad for a beginner.  I find these little stamps hard to color even with glasses!! Maybe you have to print bigger images than 2.5 like I did.  I only have about 14 Copic markers; so I didn't have a lot of selection.  I used what I had and did the best I could. 

CTMH is coming out with a new marker August 1st; so I can't wait to see what it is now that I am actually using Digital stamps.  Using digital stamps opens a whole new world for creating cards.   I still love my acrylic stamp sets and wouldn't trade them for digital ones; but it is fun for a change to use the fairies and little girls, etc.  I am very happy to be testing the waters and learning new things. 

As most of you know; I am a Guest Designer for Sketches By Carly for the summer and I am having a wonderful time.  I love these sketches.  They are created by Carly; who is a very creative 13 yr. old girl.  I think she does a fantastic job; which is why I wanted to be on her team to show my support of what she is doing.  I was so impressed that a 13 yr. old was making a difference with her talent.  Here is the card I created using a digital stamp from "My Heart Pieces called Gun Gun"

Isn't she adorable?  I love fairies and I thought this one was gorgeous!!  Of course I had to use purple!!

Plus, the ability to resize is fun too. Very nicely done! Thanks for dropping by and becoming a follower at my blog. I'm following you now, as well. Hopefully, we can inspire each other!

  25. Very pretty card and a great job for a first digi coloring! I have eye issues myself and depth perception is an issue, so I rarely go smaller than 3x3 and often I go larger, especially for very detailed digis. I love being able to resize based on my project with digitals images! =) Thanks for joining us for the Pearls & Swirls challenge at Paper-Crafting Journey!
