Just Us Girls - Let's Get Digi!

Just Us Girls has gone digi! This week's technique challenge is to use a digital image or digital paper on your creation. We are being sponsored once again by My Time Made Easy. Lauren Meader has many of her images for sale in digital format, and that is what the JUGs girls are using.

The image I'm using today is from the Take Time for Petal Perfection digital set.I am really happy with this card for a number of reasons! First of all, I didn't have to color it at all! Not because I don't like to color....I LOVE my copics and coloring. I didn't have to color it because I "colored" it digitally in Paint. This is the first time I've EVER done this, so I am really proud of myself. The image was printed on white cardstock...I made the background blue on my computer (I am all giggles right now about this!)! Second, I was able to crop the image out of the set too, which is a feat for me as well! I'm not sure this is something I will do on a regular basis, but it's always fun to try something new. It's so 21st century! LOL!! (Wait until my students find out what Mrs. Kind did!) I was actually only playing around with this image on my computer and decided I liked it, so I used it! I was thinking I wasn't going to play this week!

After printing it out, I cut and embossed it with a nestie. Finding paper to use was a chore! I finally decided on these two from Nana's Kitchen from DCWV. I love how fresh these colors look together! I used this week's Mojo Monday sketch.

My Time Made Easy is giving away a great prize to a lucky participant...a digital stamp set AND a digital paper pack! That's reason enough to enter!

Now stop by the JUGs blog to see how the design team went digi! You can also stop by their blogs...they are listed on my side bar.
I'm going to have another post later today for the Paper Makeup Stamps review of their latest release, so make sure you stop by again! Thanks for stopping in today and have a great weekend!

Fantastic Lisa - way to go completely digital - I did just what you did - began messing around then like the image... Beautifully done - thanks for jumping in and getting digi with all of us. I know it won't be my go to technique but once in a while it's kind of fun.

I don't have much experience manipulating digi stamps either. Just need the time to play around to figure things out. I like what you did with yours. :)

Fabulous card Lisa! WOW, I don't think I have colored anything digitally that was useable LOL.

Sam said...

Great card Lisa and well done on all your digi finishes. I have to get past resizing and printing! That paper works perfectly with your colored image and the sketch is perfect. So fresh and pretty.
