Colour them in
Our designer Kitty Frampton has used alcohol markers to colour in the digi stamps. If you’re after a quick fix, you can shade the designs in simply, applying the same amount of pressure throughout. After a more professional look? Try graduating the shade to create realistic motifs – you can really see this in action on the barbecue opposite. Grab yourself some Chameleon pens; they do the blending for you!
Set the scene
These digi stamps are so distinctive, so it’s absolutely fine to let them do the talking. All you need to do is complement them with coordinating papers and sentiments – Kitty has teamed the hamper with gingham paper to mimic a picnic table, while the strawberries are played up with ‘Have a sweet birthday’. You could go one step further and experiment with more adventurous techniques. Use a brick stencil to create a wall and use this to set the scene for the barbecue digi stamp.
Why not try…?
The brilliant thing about these digi stamps is that, once downloaded, you can print them off again and again. That means plenty of experimentation! If you’re nifty on a computer, try resizing the food and drink so it can sit alongside the picnic basket on the same card. Or print multiples of the same motif and try a spot of 3D decoupage or even pyramage. You don’t want your greetings to look too flat, so do as Kitty has done with different textures – such as a paper doily – and the always important use of 3D foam pads.
