Soft Pencil - Tulip


Here is my card this week for Soft Pencil. It is using the Tulip digital stamp. If you haven't tried digital stamps yet they are very simple to use. Elizabeth's digital stamps are nice because you don't really have to size them they are already sized to just print out which alot of company's don't do. They are also singles so you don't have to worry about cutting them out. This one I just dropped in a word document and made 2 of them at the top. I always change my margins so they are only .5 instead of 1 inch. This is done in the layout area of word. Then I printed this one on Kraft cardstock. I used Versamark chalk in around the edges I believe it was straw that I used for the color. The tulip is colored with prisma's and OMS any oderless mineral spirits will do. I use gamsol for my choice. After I was done I added some stickles not to the whole thing just to the side as you can see. As with all my cards I sewed around the edge. Easy peasy.... anyone can do this in a matter of a half an hour. That is it for today. I called in sick tonight I have had a horrible headache which has made me feel ill so back to bed. Have a great evening...
