Card: 2015 Halloween Day 17 of 31 - Flight by Night

Now *this* is an interesting one! It's not something I shout or anything, but I have an extensive collection of physical stamps, right? Well, I also take those stamps and make them digital, so I can do scenes with them, print them larger, and to back them up. That kind of thing. You just stamp the image, take a high-res photo, and Photoshop the little bugger a bit until it's a nice high-res digital stamp with just lines and no background for layering. It's the same process I used when drawing my own images before I got my Cintiq (now I just draw on that, already digital). Point is, this little scene was made with several Lawn Fawn sets, but digitally. No masking, no making paper, no nothing. So much easier! I did the background and moon in Distress Ink and then coloured everything else with Copic and a bit of pencil. Then... then I went embellishment crazy! Phew! I hope you like it though, this was way fun to do. Stay tuned for another card tomorrow!

  1. I really like this one, the image seems 'softer'... I guess because it is a digital rather than a physical stamp? Nicely done.

    1. Hiya, Nancy. Well, mostly it looks softer because I used more of the "no lines" type of colouring, which is definitely easier in digital. You just turn down the opacity of your lines before you print. But you can do it with physical stamps too if you stamp in a ligher ink (grey, pink, etc) and make your colours nice and bold. You can see here on this card, I stamped the girl in pink, then coloured her. https://www.facebook.com/AerynKelly13/photos/pb.502953279719621.-2207520000.1445391151./1122680077746935/?type=3&src=https%3A%2F%2Fscontent-sjc2-1.xx.fbcdn.net%2Fhphotos-xpt1%2Ft31.0-8%2F11794063_1122680077746935_6017791550749414686_o.jpg&smallsrc=https%3A%2F%2Fscontent-sjc2-1.xx.fbcdn.net%2Fhphotos-xpt1%2Fv%2Ft1.0-9%2F11846642_1122680077746935_6017791550749414686_n.jpg%3Foh%3D01866a44238f0ca150dab4cf4a0fc96a%26oe%3D56C194D6&size=2012%2C2048&fbid=1122680077746935
