Hello crafty friends! We are almost at the end of 2021 – can you believe it?? Today I have a different sort of project to show you, something that I have been wanting to try for a long time. It is also my entry for this month’s Imagine That Digistamps progressive challenge.
So a good long while ago I downloaded the Sketchbook app onto my tablet and kitted myself out with a fine tip stylus. But other than some doodles, I did not get to try digital coloring. But on Christmas day, I decided to try it with this cute Gingerbread girl in a mug for this month’s challenge. And a challenge it was. I first had to figure out what pressure I needed on the stylus and then I also had to figure out what “pen” to use and how to blend the colors. But here we have a result.
It still needs a lot of practice and probably some research, but for a first try and using only the trial and error method, I will take it. I still prefer my Prismacolor pencils though!!!
I printed the image out and fussy cut it. I ran a black marker along the cut edge and added it to the bottom corner of a white cardbase. I added a die cut sentiment and some gems to complete my card.
