Do you like digital stamps? If you haven’t tried them yet, you should! They are a lot of fun! I’ve recently joined Michelle Perkett’s Digi team, so you’ll see a lot of her images here on my blog.

Every Tuesday there will be a new challenge introduced on Michelle Perkett Studios Challenge Blog!

There will be a prize involved!

This week is challenge 44 —-> to use real or faux stitching on a project using one of Michelle’s images.

If you don’t have any Michelle Perkett Studio images, there are freebies at the Michelle Perkett Studio Paper Craft Planet group and the CDAC group and more for sale at Michelle’s Etsy store.

Here’s a card to get you going:

and getting ready for Halloween! I used one of Michelle Perkett’s faeries offered at Faerie Song Artstamps to make this Halloween-ish card. It’s Glenda the Good Witch! 🙂

The card layout was inspired by Shimelle’s weekend crop, thanks Shimelle!

Artist Trading Cards (ATC), ah yes, those little pieces of art! I recently got some great background and backs for ATC’s from Lost Coast Designs Stamps. Thanks to the Spring Virtual Convention on Rubber Stamp Chat, I got a great deal on them with free shipping! Thanks to Linda for the sale and prompt service!

I haven’t used them yet, hahahaha, gotcha! I used some stamps from Starving Artistamps and Faerie Song Stamps to create my Mardi Gras beauty. I double embossed the background with the gem bezels and harlequin. I stamped and embossed the gems first then stamped and embossed over them with the harlequin pattern in a different color. Neat effect isn’t it?

Guess what? Another great sheet of rubber from Heather at Faerie Song Art Stamps!

This time, we’re going under the sea to those mythical mermaid creatures. Gretchen Raisch-Baskin is the artist that has added her own special touch to Magical Mermaids, the 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet of red rubber stamps. I had a lot of fun using Copics markers to color in the details of the ocean and mermaids. It was a great opportunity to practice blending, which you’ll probably be able to tell here and there.

Take a look and I hope you like them!

Nidlongdir is a Magic Fairy Realm beautifully illustrated by Marianne Mathiasen and now brought to you in red rubber stamps! Heather at Faerie Song Art Stamps has just introduced an 8 1/2″ x 11″ sheet of rubber images drawn by Marianne.

You can find the images that I’ve used below on that sheet, available on Heather’s web site, Faerie Song Art Stamps.

I hope you like the samples! Enjoy!

All images are colored with Copics Markers.

I thought the House Mouse stamps were super cute, but these Mouserkins are absolutely adorable! I had a great chance to do some more coloring with the Copics. I’m doing more blending than ever before. In doing that, I definitely have some holes in my Copic collection. Funny how it doesn’t appear until you really start using them! I use the Warm and Cool Grays often – for shadowing and outlining. It gives the image such a great look! Well then you have the colors too – wowser! I love the light colors because they can brighten up a darker tone in two shakes. I can’t wait to get more…

Take a look at the newest cards using the Mouserkins from Faerie Song Art Stamps:
