CDS Digi Stamp Release Day. I illustrated 2 of them! Plus Comment Candy!

Hello All!

Make sure to read to the bottom to see how to win my latest digis!

 It's digital release day over at Clear Dollar Stamps and I did 2 this month!
The first card was done with my "Autumn Friends" set.

That pretty ribbon is Moss Swirls from Really Reasonable Ribbon.
This is such a fun image to color and can be used for a general Fall card or for Halloween. It is just $3.00 and you can download it instantly HERE.

My second card is done with my other September digi. It's called  "Autumn Blessings".

 It colors up so quickly but yet you can use it for a down home country card up to a very elegant card depending on the cardstock and papers you choose. Very versatile! It is just $2.50.
Download it instantly HERE.

I hope you will head on over to Lori's blog, Clearly i Stamp where there are links to the other girls who used my images to make some beautiful projects. You can also check out the the rest of the digi releases for September. They are all sooo cute!

 ~~~~Comment Candy Alert!~~~~
CDS and I will be giving one lucky commenter BOTH sets of the digis seen here, so don't forget to give me some love!
The winner will be announced Sunday, September 19th.
(If you are the winner, and you've already bought them by the time I draw, I will simply refund your money!)

Amazing cards! The digis are stunning!

Beautiful Greetings said...

These are awesome True! I have to have them :) I love fall images and I remember your "prototype" last year :) Just amazing.

Ok...have to ask you how you watercolor a digi without the printer ink smearing!! I have tried different settings on the printer, heat setting, different papers etc...nothing works for me :(

craft-princess said...

Great fall images!!! Love the big pumpkins!!

True :) said...

Thanks to all who have commented so far!
To answer your question about watercoloring a digital image without smearing.
I use watercolor paper and heat set BOTH sides. I the use as dry a brush as I can on the edges and where there are lines. I use a little more water in the centers of the image.
Hopes this helps!
True :D
