We spent the day out at Old Tucson Studios today.
Engineer's company had an event out there for all the families and so we loaded up the van, the sunscreen and headed off into the sunset...well, actually, the bright, midday desert sun. After getting our fill of burgers and beans, horses and gunfights, we loaded up the van, the sunscreen and headed off to our air conditioned home. And this is when I finally sat down to get this card done.
Hey, you're saying, that card looks like the last one you posted!
No way, Jose! say my boys. I just used the same paper because it was still out from last week.
This is actually my first digital stamp card ever. The girl, aptly named SuzyQ Diva, is one of the Owl Whimsy digital stamps. I belong to quite a few Yahoo groups and this particular company was the focus for this month's homepage contest over at CopicCabana.
Stamps: Owl Whimsy SuzyQ Diva #2
Inks: NONE...unless your count my printer ink
Papers: CTMH Emporium Reflections Kit
I have stayed away from digital stamps in the past...because I'm biased, honestly. Nothing feels like a good stamp in your hand when your making something. But I do have to admit I like stamping this way also. Not only can you resize the images to what you need, but I printed out a whole sheet of these girls...you know, for all my mistakes I make. The best thing about it, however, came as a surprise. My three boys sat at the table and colored their own girls, just like mom!
Oh be still!
So they said I could share their artwork with you.
They also asked if they could use my markers.
Notice how great their girls look in colored pencil?!
