 I have used the brand you digital stamp set called "Wonderful Things"
Find it in the Etsy Shop

Here is what I have made for this time:
  For this project I copied my strawberry image into Word. I scaled the image and copy & pasted the image to fill up an A4 sheet. I then printed the sheet and left it to dry overnight.
Digital images can always smudge a bit when you colour, but I personally find that leaving the images to dry overnight gives the ink enough time to set and I dont have that problem.
I used promarkers to colour and smudged a bit of distress ink around the images and edges.

I left this project very simple. I wanted the images to stand out. So all I did after my background was finished was to cut it to fit my card and added a mat and my sentiment.
My sentiment is also from the "Wonderful things" digi stamp set. I once again copied it in to word, re-sized and printed. I didnt leave this image for long cause I didnt colour it. I simply just fuzzy cut it and added a bit of distress ink.

What caught my eye when I first saw Graciellie Designs, was the Sentiments. Each digital set comes with several sentiments, and I love that. As I had the printer switched on, I printed this sentiment to have a play with. I love scrapbooking so I decided to make a fun background, a picture of my babies and some homemade glue drop to make this quick page.

And that is all from me today. Thanks for popping by and for any comments left behind.
