Hello friends!

I am thrilled to be show casing Digital stamps to you for the Digital Wednesday feature at STAMPloration blog. I am featuring the beautiful floral digis Boxed blooms and am bringing some cool ideas for using and stretching them in some unconventional ways. The Boxed blooms is a set of 4 Digital stamps and have some gorgeous illustrations of Rose, Daisy, daffodil and Orchid. I also have a You tube tutorial for the detailed process of how I made these cards.  I am using all three mediums to color, Copic, Pencil colors and watercolors!! and I printed my digis from an ink jet printer. Also I tried to use colored cardstock for my cards today, which is a great way to get more interest on your cards.
