Give The Gift of Pictures with Craftin Desert Divas
Hi and welcome, everyone! For today’s CDD daily post I want to show you a fun way to combine three stamp sets and create a unique gift. Using Bitty Blessings, Capture The Good Times, and Picture That Stamp Sets I created this card with one thought in mind, the gift of pictures. As I sit here and write this post, I realize the many different ways this can be used. Give a gift certificate to the local photography studio, gift a camera or a scrapbook. See, the possibilities?
I don’t do a lot of no-line coloring, so I thought this would be an excellent opportunity to give it a go.
I like the look of it with this particular card. While this card is very fun and whimsical, the no-line coloring keeps the feel of the photo real, as real as it can. You could even take this a step further and add a background to the picture.
Here are the products I used:
