one of the "newest" things in stamping is digital stamps -- or digi stamps. i'm not sure what i think of it -- to me, it's not stamping, it's clipart.
well, i caved in and tried 2 images. i bought them from bugaboo stamps.
my dad asked me to make him a card for my nephew (his grandson). he graduated today from pre-k. dad couldn't find a card he liked - or one that said pre-k and grandson.
so -- when i checked my stamps the only graduation stamps i had seemed to old for an almost 5 year old. so -- i remembered seeing bugaboo -- and loving the cute images - i also remembered they did a freebie on fridays. so i went to check it out - and found 2 great images. i love the cards -- they turned out great.
here there are -- the owl is the card i made for my dad -- the turtle i did for him and another little boy.
the papers were some i had on hand. i colored the images with colored pencils and gamsol. i printed the sentiments on the computer. the shape around the image was cut with nestabillities. the inks are SU - parfait peach, and marine blue.
i don't think i'll go all digi anytime soon. i miss inking up a stamp - and it seems, like i said before - like clip art.
but -- these did turn to great -- and they were just what i was looking for. so -- once in awhile it's fun.
thanks for stopping by! and happy stamping!
