Hello again, Delia here, ok, so I did promise another way to use Hero Arts Poetic Petals PT004 Digital Download, this being my third and final layout, wait for it … it is a card!! I am in no way a card maker, fiddly things and me are not really the best of mates. However, I wanted to use this digital download one more way just to show how versatile digital stamps are to use. I also did black and white as I felt like leaving them, but I did use a black pen and thicken them up and make longer stems on the flowers. Can’t help myself, I know.
So, here is a simple card from me to all of you, using the flowers, layered off the card surface. I used an embossed paper panel behind the flowers of leaves, but you could use any embossing plate that you have in your stash. Two bits of ribbon and on went the flowers. I found a funny little stamp saying Thinking of You, embossed it in white, mounted that on some black card, just to lift it a bit. I raised this on two pieces of tape so it sits nicely off the background raised above all else. So simple, but so effective. It is very bright white and beautiful, you know, in a black and white kind of way!
And that is it, all done, so if you are looking for value for money in scrapbooking, digital downloads are definitely a really viable alternative. They are so versatile and you are only limited by your imagination on how much you can use them. I almost wanted to create a large mural with them too. I mean, can you imagine getting these images on a canvas and then painting that canvas? … would look pretty awesome. Or you could just print them out like they are on a canvas and it would create such a pretty piece of artwork in your house. See below for a quick example. So many options.
That’s it for me for this month, keep up your creativity, challenge yourself. That is my most fave thing about this kind of creative genre – we all push our own selves to make each creation better than the last, to stretch our own creative selves. Not because of a job or a promotion, just because. I think that is great. So be good, be kind, be generous and inspirational. I have been trying out a new style, pushing my own self trying to understand the amazing work of many European designers and there great skill at layering and embellishing.
