One of the things I have found I use often lately in My Digital Studio it the ability to color a "stamped" image different colors, as if you had used markers.
A couple years ago, at the end of a catalog year for Stampin' Up! I bought the digital version of the Take a Spin stamp set and the spinner hands that coordinated with it.
And until now I had never used it. I found quite a few things last year as I was unpacking my craft room, after we moved, that I hadn't used yet. I think it's time to do something about that!
This is the card I made using this digital stamp set and accessories.
I started with the card base. A regular piece of 8.5 x 11 inch card stock, cut in half on the short side, folded and scored at 4.25 inches for a 4.25 x 5.5 inch card; the standard A2 size card. I ran the front of the card base through my Cuttlebug with an embossing folder for some dimension and texture.
I chose four colors and digital colored the image and printed it with my home computer on white card stock. I cut it down and mounted it on another piece of card stock. I hand colored some of the more open images, like the cake and gift and hat, to help it looked finished.
I added the spinner hands and then blinged it up. I put gold stickles on the star, diamond stickles on the cake frosting, glossy accents on the gift and birthday hat. I hope you can see all that in the photo.
The inside is another stamp set I hadn't used yet. I colored it in the same colors as the front and mounted it inside the card.
Thanks for looking!
