My First Digi-Stamp

Hello everyone - today my post is a card made with my first digi-stamp. This was one of the digi-stamps I won at House Mouse Challenge a couple of weeks ago. A very nice lady from Papercupcakes sent me this image as well as one other. She has some very nice images to download and her website is www.papercupcakes-stamps.com. This image is called Sunday Afternoon. I cut out both the girl and the duck, colored them with my copic markers (E15, E33, E35, E37, E00, E02, R20, C1, C4, C5, Y21, Y26, B32 and YG17). I added some prima flowers, used my quikutz dies to cut out a couple of swirls as well as the orange flowers, I stamped the sentiment from a SU set, added some flowersoft to the bottom, put a lace doily under the 2 layers of label nesties, added a "fencelike" border and finished off the card with some glass brads, jewels and some sparkle to her dress and swirls. I found that the black ink from my printer bled a bit when I started to color with my copics even though I did heat set and left it overnight. I was a bit disappointed about that but over all I was happy with how the card turned out. Thank you for stopping by and visiting my blog. Hope you have a great Wednesday - half the work week almost over - yeah!!

Your stamping friend

Debbie, this is just beautiful!! I was sad to see that your ink bleed. I will have to invest in a few copics and see how that all works. I know I have had others that use copics that it doesn't happen to, if you do what you stated. So I don't know what the answer to that is. Although looking at this, I certainly cannot tell where it bleed, the whole card is just gorgeous and you do such lovely work! Thanks for showcasing this image so wonderfully!!

oh, the image is so pretty and I've never thought of using Floweer Soft like that!! I can't really see where the Copics bles, thankfully my printer is OK with them - then again the ink runs for the hills as soon as it SMELLS the water!!
