How could you not love a digi stamp collection that is the solution to your sentiment woes? Not sure what to say, worried you’ll mess up, don’t have time for traditional stamping… no problem at all. If you’d like to jazz them up a little once you’ve printed them, try Kitty’s ideas. You can die cut them into the shape of your choice, ink the edges – see the ‘Silent night’ card – or mount them onto coloured card to make them pop.
Colouring made simple
Lots of these Tattered Lace digi stamps have a sketchy quality to them, which means one very important thing: less work for you! You can quickly colour in motifs like the fir tree, candles, snowmen and still achieve depth and quality. If you’d like to add a bit of flair (we know you well!) then experiment with two colours. For the candle flame, apply orange at the bottom and yellow towards the top.
Kitty has displayed numerous background options, from patterned papers matted onto coloured card to embossed panels. Another option is to use Ranger Distress Oxide inks, whether that’s for a scene or just a wash of colour. We love the blue sky created for the snowmen – so much better than just cardstock, the slightly mottled effect adds a realistic touch.
