Paper Makeup Stamps Size Matters



I am posting too early because I have family plans today and tomorrow. Today's Challenge is to the left "Size Matters!" Re-size your digi stamp. Well, I am still a novice at this, but I re-sized this "Twisty Tree" digi image so many times that I finally came up with a size that was usable...I will be glad when I have this technique down pat!


Don't ya just love the image though? I started to put a bunch of bats around it, but it was so lovely that I just left it alone!. I used Paper Trey Ink Green Tea Leaves Collection Papers for the

background...I just love these beautiful papers. I was going for an autumn theme with the colors here. I put SU's Certainly Celery behind the Spellbinder's Lacey Squares and used a corner punch.


The image was colored with Prisma Color Pencils and Gamsol and then I sponged the background with Memento's "Cantelope" and "New Sprout" inks.


I used Paper Trey Ink's "Spring Moss" ribbon at the bottom. and made a bow with a darling little owl sticker that I found in my stash from K & Company. I really think the owl added so much to this image...kinda Halloweeny and yet, definitely "Fall/Autumn." A plus that the little guy matched the papers.


Here is a close up of this little owl. I hope you will join in on this challenge with Paper Makup Stamps. Just remember that "Size Matters." The digital stamps over at Paper Makeup Stamps are just darling! Please check out the blog and see what is happening there. Just a "Lot of Fun!"

I wish you all a very happy week ahead! Thank you for stopping by!

I do love the papers and the tree image, Velta! Very nice how you put the green behind the lacy square to set off those pretty scallops, and the little owl is so darn cute, not to mention the perfect accent for your card!
