Scrapbook News and Review which also directed me to the Copic Buzz Blog. From their I snagged a free digi image from Cute Daisy May Digi Stamps to try out. **
I have to admit... it's my first time to use a digi image. Since our move to the cabin I rarely plug in the printer so I had been holding off taking the cardmaking digi plung. It was worth it. I printed myself off a page of images to color up and here's the card I put together for the Copic Buzz Challenge #24.
Some things to consider when printing digi stamps... the paper you print it on and the size of the image itself. I used the plain white copier paper that was already in the printer and resized my image with Pages (a Mac program). I knew I had to be careful with my coloring on this paper because it wicked the ink really well. I was afraid of the ink bleeding into unwanted areas so I kept the ink layering simple and held back from using many shades. All in all it was fun-fun and I'd definitely would do it again.
As to resizing images, I chose to keep the images around two inches. I also masked with a shape to make the white space around the images smaller. This helped me fit a few more images on the page. What was really cool is that I had some images saved from previous freebie giveaways that I combined on this print too and now I have a variety to play with in the future.
I hope you have a chance to check out Cute Daisy May Digi Stamps. I really like her style of drawing. It's cute with a mix of cartoon and realistic flare.... very girlie too!
Have a wonderful and creative day!
