Mixing it up a bit – Digital Tweaking!

Some of you already know that I was so Hand-coloring phobic last year and my coloring was all done digitally. Here’s a mixed piece I did in the wee hours of this morning.

The Original Image was colored by hand and then I imported it into my computer to watermark it ….and got a bit carried away lol. Now if you are going to do this, I recommend Scanning your image in. I wasn’t planning to do this… so mine was just from a photograph, but you get the idea.

One of the things I love about my new Epson Eco Tank printer, is not having to worry about printing out large full color images… and running out of ink LOL.

It’s very quick and easy to go from this:

To THIS ……cutebuttonwmd_frmd

Just a wave of the magic wand,  drop shadow,  and some of the presets like add borders and texture effects… and Bingo!!…  your image is now framed and ready to print.

  • Image –  Cute as a Button “Moving Day”  colored with Chameleon Pens, Ranger Distress Pens and  Zig Memory System writers. Printed on 110lb card stock
  • Digital Addons – I worked in my trusty old Jasc Paint Shop Pro7, it’s a great program for beginners and you can still pick up a copy on Ebay at a decent price now and then.

Don’t be afraid to mix your techniques and ideas when crafting… it’s a lot of fun and handy when you don’t have the physical papers, or embellishments at hand.
