I am so honored to announced that I am a new member of the DT for Jan’s Digi Stamps Challenge Blog! Every month is Anything Goes, and while you don’t have to use one of Jan’s amazing images to win, we would love to see you use them if you have them! Stamp designers are always so inspired to see how you use their images, and Jan is no exception. She loves to comment on all the projects entered into the challenges! And note that I said projects… not just cards, anything you create whether its with stamps, or sewing, or even baked goes… truly Anything Goes! You can enter up to 5 times, just be sure to be a follower of the blog to win!
So now on to the cards… yes, plural!!! I used the set from Jan’s Digi Stamps called Friendship Flowers. Jan’s digi sets come with both black and white and precolored versions, as well as sentiments. I first had to print and play with the precolored image and used orange patterned paper to bring out the beautiful orange flowers in the bouquet. But soon after making that card, I just *had* to color up those amazing blooms myself!!! I selected patterned papers first to determine my color palette, and colored the image up with Prismacolor pencils. I’m so pleased with how this turned out! I used my Silhouette to print the images and die cut them out. I printed off extra as this image is great for practice. I’m still in my colored pencil journey, and I want to keep improving! I didn’t want to distract from the beautiful image so I only embellished each card with a spattering of gems in coordinating colors. Here are close ups and views of the insides:
Now, having seen the beauty of this set I know you will want to head over to Jan’s shop to see what else she has that you *need* in your crafty stash! So many styles to choose from too… critters, holidays, florals, you name it! And also be sure to check out the Jan’s Digi Stamps Challenge Blog! The DT used a variety of Jan’s images for samples for this month, so you’ll want to see all the inspiration there and to link up your latest projects too!
