Would you believe me if I told you that today's card involves NO stamping whatsoever? Yup, it's true. At the behest of friends and fellow artists and stampers who complete beautiful works of art in digital media, I finally tried some digi-art for myself. And, the verdict?
I LOVED IT!
What are Digital Stamps?
Digital stamps, or digi stamps, are black and white digital images that are downloaded onto a computer where they can be manipulated before printing out. At their most basic, when they are printed out digital stamps are just like traditional rubber or clear stamped images. One of their attractions, however, is the fact that the images can be resized, flipped, or manipulated in other ways before printing it out and colored in the same way that a rubber stamped image is colored. This gives a stamper a range of new design opportunities. The most significant difference between digital stamps and traditional stamps is that there is no physical stamp.
The image you see below of the Geisha girl was provided by my dear friend Ginny from Maxam Made Studio. I hope she recognizes the image. Please check out her blog as she frequently posts free digital prints for you to use!
Today's card is also for entry into the Mojo Monday sketch challenge:
I would truly like to thank Ginny for inspiring me to try something new. The end result? A beautiful card and a penchance to see what else I can make with stamps, now that I know if I add digital media, my options are endless!
Oh no, that's kinda scary. . . But, I promise more digi stamps to come!
Thanks for visiting and have a S-U-P-E-R day!
