Far Far Awayyyyy......

Good Morning Crafty Friends!
 I'm here today to share my latest card using one of the new release Digi Winnie's. Ive used Faraway Winnie. I know I said in my last post about being a stamping girl ...BUT ....I just couldn't wait for her to become available as a stamp. She's just gorgeous.

Do you struggle with Digi's? 
 I do, because I use watercolour paper and it is too thick to go through my printer, but below is a little step by step on how I master it.
I hope it helps you too :D

Once you have downloaded your image to your laptop/Ipad, open up in the program you use. I have a MacBook so I use 'Pages' to do this. Resize to the size you are happy with and click on print. This then should bring up the printing box and show you the size it will be printed onto the A4 paper. My printer is a HP Officejet Pro 6830. Also outlined in pink is the Opacity. If like me you don't like your images to be jet black, you can alter the percentage to a greyer shade.
Once you are happy with the settings click print on normal A4 paper. It may take a few attempts until you are happy with the size and depth of the image.

I then cut out a piece of my Water Colour paper and tape over the pre-printed image.
For colouring I use Bockingford Hotpressed extra smooth.
Once taped over the image, put back into the printer tray and click print. NOTE..Remember to put in correct way so the image prints in the exact same spot as the previous and onto the Water Colour Paper.
Yes! Voila.... This is how it should look and you are all ready to paint :D
and so it begins.
I colour with Distress Inks and occasionally Distress Pens

Papers used are Beau Paperie Belle. Flowers I handmade and dies are from my stash.
Oh and here are the rest of the gorgeous MUST HAVE release 

Thankyou for stopping by and I hope Ive helped you attempt a Digi image 

Ula- Be A Unicorn

Hiya Everyone 
I hope you have all had an amazing Easter. Wow what fabulous weather we have had in the UK too.
I have a little news to share today. I'm now part of the Polkadoodles Blog Team. You can find the blog HERE
I'm not a digital person at all and prefer to use stamps in my crafting because I use Distress Inks to colour my work...I just can't seem to get the printing of a download right onto my paper, it's a good job we all like different things!  So when I spied that this lovely image was available as a Clear Stamp I had to snap her up fast.  You can get this great stamp from all great Polkadoodles stockists

For my card I used the gorgeous Ula Be A Unicorn coloured with Distress Re-Inkers. I do love these gorgeous images of Ula.
Papers are Bella Flour

I made the flowers with Foamarian and painted with Alchemy paints to give a more shimmering effect
Dies are a mixture from my stash including DooHickeys and Lady E and I can't help using a little pink Frantage around the edges.

Hope you like it.
Right Im back outside to play in that gorgeous sunshine while its here.
