Today we have three fun  Digital Images to show you......yes you read......DIGITAL.  

Now it's  going to be easier than ever to join in our challenges, by downloading some sweet digital images.   That's not all,   there will be some brilliant digital design papers for you too.  I love having paper saved to my computer to print off whenever I need it. The secret to printing out digital DP is to use good quality paper and Andrea has that covered too.  Want the best news? They will be released in  colour families for us, what fun!  There's lots more new stuff so stay in touch............

Introducing from left to right:  Bench Seat Romance, Summer Rain and Young Love.
Digital Illustrations.

I've made these cards as a set, using some of the NEW digital paper for the top layer and also the little girls dress has been paper pieced in one of the new polka dots. Here they are one by one.

All the cards start with a Kraft base and are colouring was with Prisma's and OMS. 

Bench Seat Romance is a great illustration.....love it!!! For this one I used Andrea's  patterned digital dp in 'milk chocolate' over SU peach parfait.  Some sponging and machine stitching and AnnaBelle's wide ribbon is fantastic for this stitched ribbon detail.  I've added pumpkin 6mm Sprinkles for some bling. A computer generated sentiment  is attached to a button with some AnnaBelle white cotton cord.  Talking buttons... Andrea has added some to the store, in colours to match  the NEW paper colour families.

Here's the second image 'Summer Rain' I think this little sailor is the sweetest image and am thinking about all those cards made to send to the troops.........what could be better!
For this card I paper pieced the umbrella in 'lake' polka dot digital paper from ABS and the raindrops have a touch of Christalina KindyGlitz to add some shine. I've added some piercing and AnnaBelle's wide blue ribbon with some 6mm Waterfall Sprinkles,  adding the computer generated sentiment with white cotton cord from ABS.

Young Love ...... Oh I love this one too!!!!  I've used  some of the digital paper in 'lake' for the second layer on this card. Some Boysenberry Sprinkles and  the yummy pink striped wide ribbon .  No stitching, instead I added some dots using a red 'atyou Spica' from Copic's and an embossed strip of the pink card.  The computer generated sentiment is attached with natural jute also from AnnaBelle Stamps.

That's it for today, do you like these images?  Hope so....... I have another card to show you using Young Love coloured with Copic's and a Fancy Fold........think I might save that one and show you on FRIDAY,  you'll see so many lovely cards today if you follow the Hop!

If you're not too sure how to use a Digital image just send me a message I'll be glad to help you.

I can't wait to show you some of the other new clear stamps Andrea has they're terrific.   I've been playing and trying to come up with some fresh ideas for you so PLEASE keep watching!!!!

I've kept you long enough, on with the HOP  next stop is the very talented Kylie..........have fun and good luck!

Hi Sue, you've done a fantastic job and using all the new stuff too - stamps and papers. What type of printer do you use? I only have bubblejet and it bleeds, I imagine I need a laser printer?
