Crooked Picture Frame

Digi-stamps are a really economical way of increasing your stamp library and are as versatile as regular stamps - if not more so.
I made this card by printing out the Birch Tree Scene digital stamp and painted the background with Creative Expressions Cosmic Shimmer Drawing Inks.  The frame was cut from some beautiful copper card using Spellbinders Nestabilities Lattice Rectangles and then mounted onto a blue background which was embossed using the Creative Expressions Bark Embossing Folder.
You can change the colours to create a completely different mood or time of day.
We would love to see how your imagination has used the image.

  1. I think this is breathtakingly beautiful! I have never used drawing inks before - are they easy to use?

  2. Hi Victoria
    They are very easy to use. They have a good strong colour and lot of mica so when they are dry they have a lovely shimmer.
    You can either use them straight from the bottle for a really strong colour, or I tend to put a few drops onto my craft mat and use a water brush to get a softer colour. The bottles come with a very fine brush which is good for fine detail. They also have a valve in the bottle which means if you knock it over (a frequent event in my house) they do not leak.
