Retro Lights


So, apparently you CAN teach old dogs new tricks!

I told y'all (and yes, I used to live in Texas so I can rightfully use that word!) that until last week I had not ever used digital images. Well, this week I challenged myself to make a scene using them!

And nope, it was not the type of profanity laced, computer throwing scene you were probably thinking of! It was a sweet scene, full of fun digis!

And guess what?? I got 3 digis on this one card! Since they were the focus of the card front, I was able to whip out this CAS creation in 15 minutes!

But wait, there's more!
Did you say that in your best infomercial voice??

I saved it on my computer so I can recreate it at the click of a button! Although DH might get a little jealous if I sent this to just anyone! ;)

Stamps: Mod Kitch Kitsch and Say it Like it's 1959
Paper: PTI Stampers Select White, DCWV Tahiti
Ink: Copics to color
Accessories: SU Gold Twine & Brads, Stickles because all cards need a little bling :), Amuse Scallop Edge Die

The vintage klout of this card knocks my knickers off. Love it. The colors couldn't be more spot on. It'd be impossible.
xox,

You so crack me up! Love the "scene" you created.... I did happen to use my best infomercial voice as I read that line too! Welcome to the world of digis... addiction beware!

Oh my this is great! You are just growing and growing. I mean your brain. Digis are fun and there are so many wonderful ones. Plus you can make them any size you want.
