The main image below is from the "Always Elegant" set. Would you be surprised if I told you this is actually a digital image? Yep! It's one of the new downloads from My Digital Studio (MDS).
While the downloads are designed to be used with MDS software, you can purchase the images (PNG files) and use them as digital rubberstamps for your cards. Most of the images included with MDS are solids, obviously to give you the choice to change the image to a pattern fill or specific color. However, I've been searching for more 'coloring book' images so I can color them using markers, dye pads or watercolor pencils.
I'm looking forward to SU! offering more "digital" coloring book images (hint, hint). What I really like about having this option is the capability to scale up the image to a size that's useable for my specific project (which is exactly what I did here).
One thing to note, if you want to purchase an individual image. They work in MDS. However, if you don't have MDS, you can pull them into Photoshop OR even a word document as an 'image', but this works ONLY for the open images (you can't change the colors of the solid images).
Now, on to my project:
The flourish was inserted into MDS and scaled up (so I could work with it at reasonable size). I copied it 3 other times so my final white cardstock had 4 images (3 to color in the future).
Markers were used to color the main image. I used the Coffee Crumb and the small row of flowers from "Because I Care" to stamp just above and below the flourish. The main image is lifted with dimensionals.
