Friday Sketchers 75 and Trying Out My Winnings!

I joined Papercraft Planet this last week, and while there spotted a group with an emphasis on digital stamps called 'DZ Doodles'. I joined, and it turned out I was member no. 100, so I was awarded a free stamp from the collection. I chose one called 'Shelby Contemplating' and I used it with Friday Sketchers Challenge no. 75.



It's such a lovely image of a little girl lost in a daydream or thinking deep thoughts! I coloured it with my week-old Promarkers. (I'm still getting the hang of them and finding out which papers and cards are best.) The papers are from Papermania and Creative Cardmaking magazine, and the ribbon from the bargain bin at Hobbycraft! The text is perhaps a little deep for a little girl, but then again, you never know!

Many thanks to Diane Zyla of DZ Doodles for the image. There are some absolute beauties on the site.

Well I am a true convert to digi stamps as you know, sorry I have been neglecting you by not visiting lately, but I've been doing some tutorials and freebies. Gosh, they are such time eaters, but worthwhile and fun to do. ;-)

Congratulations on being 100th to join, and you sure did do that digi stamp justice. It is great!

Me again, thanks for your lovely comment Josephine, I think to answer your question you should have a look at the http://screencasters.heathenx.org/episode-075/ video.

In that episode Heathenx demonstrates how to create vector wings by tracing over a pencil sketch in Inkscape v0.46. He explains it far better than I could. Check it out and let me know what you think.
