A First For Me... And a Challenge

So today marks a first for me - I actually used a Digi Stamp - first time! Today over at Cooking with Cricut the challenge is Halloween - but cute Halloween, not spooky halloween. We have a sponsor this week The Cutting Cafe and when I went to take a peek at her digi stamps, I fell in LOVE with the cute little witch feet! I knew I had to try my hand at digital stamps - here is what I came up with:







I designed this card on my Gypsy, using the font from Robotz to weld "BOO" to the side of my card. The paper is all from SU, and the patterned paper is from My Minds Eye. I used my SU markers to color in my digi. I have to say, I wasn't thrilled with how the coloring went. The color bled a little bit, and the marker didn't cover very well. I don't know if it's because I needed to use different ink in my printer, or because I used the wrong markers. Like I said, I am new at all the digi stuff :)

On the flip side, I LOVE how this turned out. I love her in the pretty bright colors. I think she looks so cute and friendly... like Glenda the Good Witch. I am excited to try digis again. Maybe next time I will use my color pencils...

Some challneges:
Fantabulous Cricut - frighten me or not
Ooh-La-La Challenge - spooky
Crafty Purple Frog - anything goes
Top Tip Tueday - anything goes
One Stitch at a Time - celebrations

A la prochaine...
