Aren’t they amazing!?!  The beauty of digital stamps, like all of the stamp sets being revealed this month, are that they can be printed onto patterned paper, coloured within your computer photo editing software, resized to a larger or even smaller image.  The possibilities are endless with digital stamps!

Here’s a little close up of my peonies…

I printed them out on my laser printer (‘cuz I’m too impatient to wait for my inkjet ink to dry!) and then coloured them up using Copic Markers!  I just love the soft pink light that’s kissing them!

Now… hop on to the remainder of the Bloom Brigade and check out all of the lovely Peonies pazazz!

  1. OMG love the shading on the flowers! You do magic with Copics. So realistic. Making a mental note on that as we speak :)

  2. Oh my Ally.... love this and love the splash of morning light on these beauties! Gorgeous!

  3. Wowee! These are gorgeous! I love your coloring and that card design is awesome!

  4. Oh, Ally, the shades in your peonies are amazing! I love the soft, subtle colors, and your card layout is fabulous with the border and dies in striking... especially with the gingham ribbon (I so love B&W gingham!) Another beautiful inspiration, sweet friend! Hugs!

  5. Ally - your shading is completely beautiful on these! The blue to purple is gorgeous!

  6. Oh, you ladies have out done yourselves this month with gorgeous cards by pouring out your incredible talents into these beautiful creations. Paying bills is too often the highlight of the first of the month for me, until power poppy came into existence. Now I look forward to seeing these beautiful images and being fully inspired to recreate. TFS

  7. Beautiful Ally! I like the blue and purple coloring, that is amazing. Fun design ans just beautiful card.

  8. I love love love the colors you chose. I rarely use purples but love them. The flow of your card is perfect. Great job.

  9. Allison, these are amazing the way you colored them! I have to just keep looking... Love your card design, too. I've heard you can watercolor when using a laser printer. Been thinking about getting one just for that. Oh, your shading just takes my breath away!

  10. Wow I love the two toned flowers, those are gorgeous and so is your card.


Thanks for brightening my day. I read each and every comment.
