trying something different . . .

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.

too cute!

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!
