I have heard quite a few times from crafters about buying digital stamps or even regular stamps that once they have used them a couple of times they don't use them again because all their toppers look the same if they do. I got thinking about this and thought I'd share an idea I had for an image that I drew recently for on my friends birthday card.
Here is the image, it's not a digital stamp yet, maybe I'll release it..what do you think?
So, here is the image coloured for on my friends card. All pretty and pastel and happy.
Here it is on her card..
Then I went about using the same image in a completely different way..
Now, I'm no amazing colourer so this is just to give you an idea but this time I coloured it as if it was night and the street lamp was just lighting up a bit of the street. Add a different sentiment and the same image can go onto a very different card. Maybe to a friend or family member who is having a tough time.
So, don't think that once you have coloured a new stamp or digital stamp a couple of times it is ready to be put at the back of the drawer or archived on you PC drive. Take a look at it and try to think of different ways you could colour it and mount it to give it a completely different use.
I hope that this post has got you thinking differently about your images. Let me know what you think in the comments. Also let us know what sort of posts you would like to see on the Get Funky Blog it would be great to hear your ideas.
Until next time
