Just because

Hello my crafty friends! How are you doing? I'm enjoying warm(er) spring days. I try to go out with my little girl as much as possible, so this means I have even less crafty time than usual. But I do get some in the evenings, which is perfectly fine with me. :) 

You probably know I don't use digi stamps oftern. In fact, almost never. I have quite a collection of them though (some I won, some I bought), but they are still waiting for their turn to appear on my card(s). While I do like the fact that you can resize digi images and create the whole scenes with them, there are even more reasons I personally don't like using them too much. 
1.) I almost always print the wrong size - can't seem to get this right. *sigh*
2.) I like colouring with distress inks and watercolor pencils, and despite all the tricks and tips for colouring digi images with watercolour mediums, my ink still runs when I do the colouring. Annoying!
3.) I find it MUCH faster to stamp my image than opening word, trying to figure the right size for the image, turning on printer etc. 
4.) Ink cartrige is empty - need I say more?!

That being said, I still play with digi stamps every now and then. And just recently I made this card using the panda digi from Maria Medel Rodriguez. I made this for a lovely lady, for who I know loves this stamp. :)

I decided to use soft colours for this card; I thought that would make a nice contrast against the black and white image. I used scraps of design papers from my stash and some lace, pom pom trim and tiny pearls to embellish the card. I coloured the image with Promarkers and pencils.

So, that's it for today. See you again soon! Bye bye. :) xx
