Hello everyone! I'm trying something different as you might know; a new style of digital stamp! I am still going to continue with my Pin-Up series but I wanted to try something else. It’s quite cutsey, and sweet and I’m liking it more and more. It is more complicated to do however since this style has a lot more detail and so involves a lot more work in Photoshop to get the line-work juuust right. Luckily my parents gave me a drawing tablet for my birthday in November which speeds things up.
This week you’ll have seen all the wonderful projects my design team have made on the Facebook page using on of my latest digis 'Princess' (check them out, you wont regret it) and now I’d like to show you what I've been making using this digi this week. I have to say I have really enjoyed using it (not to toot my own horn or anything). Enjoy!
This is the first card I made, its a little 5 x 5in scalloped edge card. I usually do big cards and projects so I thought it would be a good idea to challenge myself to make something small, plus I do like a nice scalloped edge. As I was designing her I was picturing her in a peach dress with brown hair so it made sense to colour her like that the first time I used her.
I think this one is my favourite, it has a slight Alice in Wonderland vibe to me. The blues just seem to work really well together and I think this is the best blonde hair I've ever coloured. Shading hair is always tricky, especially blonde as it’s really easy just to make it too yellow. I love these heart shape doilies, I think I’m going to be using them a lot, they are so versatile.
Speaking of versatility I've used another doily here, a circular one this time. By folding it in half many times and with some persuasion have been able to concertina it. Not sure if this is something that’s been done before or I've just made it up but it’s great for adding height and layers.
Lace and doilies seem to work particularly well with this image. ‘Princess’ is certainly turning out to be quite the versatile image. I'm even thinking about doing a Gothic/Lolita themed card and colouring her dress in a deep purple or burgundy with black accents. Ooh and roses, roses would be good.
If you are interested in this digi stamp you can find it in my etsy store: https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/JiggeryMakery. She is called ‘Princess’ and on at a reduced price for a limited time.
This is the first digi of this kind, please let me know what you think of it and if you want to see more.
Thanks everyone, till next time!
