a note about digi images

Today’s Sweet ‘n Sassy blog features a card I made a few weeks ago and I wanted to mention my first real experience with digi images, because that is what I used on it.

The card (details shown on this post here) was created using designer paper from My Minds Eye and a butterfly image from the Sweet ‘n Sassy set called Everday Miracles which includes two butterfly images and some wonderful sentiments.  I had the idea of the card in mind but did not have just the right butterfly image and was thrillled when I saw that this set was available in digi format and at a great price.

I’ve had no real experience with digi images and was a tad concerned because I wanted to use copic markers to color and the paper I usually use for copics is too thick to run through my printer.  But I figured for the price it was a great deal, so I printed the images out on some other good cardstock and went to work.

I was pleasantly surprised that the cardstock I used was just fine and  that my printer ink did not smear with the copics.  I also ended up using this particular butterfly image on several projects – and  realized how useful digi images are because you can re-size them so easily to fit your project.

I will be taking a closer look at digi images – most of what I’ve seen are more along the “cute” side and I hope I can find some that are less cute and more realistic such as the butterfly set used here.

Thanks for stopping by today.  I’ve been working on some things to submit for publication,  which means I can’t post until I hear back from them.  Next week we’ll be traveling up to Boston for my niece’s wedding which mean no time for stamping until I return.
