This card features the fabulous “Devilish Donna”, one of the 3 clear stamp that I got in the mail a week the other week. Absolutely love these stamps, the quality of the images is top notch ….and for me that is huge because I am a big digital stamp user and used to high res quality images 🙂 Now admittedly it’s a bit of a shock to the system for someone like me, who tends to “go big or go home” LOL. Suddenly I am size restricted…and yes I know..size isn’t everything.
But it does take a bit of getting used to for me coloring at a smaller size. Usually when I print my KennyK’s out they are at least 150-200% bigger than a physical stamp.. heh.. what can I say. Now the funny thing about this one is, I colored her by hand then imported her into my graphics program to do the background and text ….and then printed her smaller than the original stamp. Go figure !
No matter how many time I try to photograph this dang card… I just can’t seem to get a clean shot. It has so much going on and metallics, specialty papers… *rolleyes. So I aplogize for the not so fab quality of the pics on this one…
I have the original stamped and colored version, which is going on another project, hopefully before the end of the month.
And here is the digitally manipulated background and text.
This was printed out on some fab Polysilk Adhesive paper, which is almost impossible to find now. I have had this paper for.. hmm at least 13 years.
I have a bunch of fab specialty papers from that time that I just can’t seem to get hold of anymore and even though some of them are available for wholesale, I am not finding them for sale in the US on a retail level :/
