Love Is In The Air

Hello Crafty Friends!

Shery, STAMPlorations owner, has decided to spread some love ....

- with three fabulous free digis to download here on the STAMPlorations Blog
- with a linky party and blog hop on their blog

Let's spread the love ....

I couldn't resist that delicious cupcake with the mouthwatering chocolate dipped strawberry ....

It is one of the three free digital stamps. Isn't it fabulous? I have a couple more projects which I will share over the coming days.

No photo description available.

Let's have a closer look. I got my pencils out and tried my hand at colouring. The pencils are nothing spectacular, just value ones from Amazon, but I'm quite happy using them.
I only lightly coloured a few parts of the rose in cream to create some shading as I wanted it to be a white one.

First time I tried colouring chocolate using 3 shades of brown and cream for the white chocolate. The overall shading was done in light grey.
The paper I used was simple 80 gsm all purpose printer paper suitable for inkjet and definitely not the smooth type. The slightly rougher surface provides a good key for the various colours.

As you can see, there is nothing spectacular that you need to start using digital stamps. You can even use a printer that only takes paper rather than card. Why not download them now from the STAMPlorations Blog and join their linky party with your loved themed make?

As with any hop, it is important to leave comments along the way. Commenting and linking up closes Friday 8th February with the winners being announced a couple of days later.

There are lots of prizes to be won, over $100 worth, full details can be found here on the STAMPlorations Blog.

I finished my card off with a bit of die-cut Clustered Hearts. That's it from me for now.
Have fun joining the party!
