Whoo La-La!

I have made a birthday card for my daughter using one of my new digis 'Owl in Hat'
The marvelous thing about digis is you can do sooo much with them.....possibilities are endless!
You can do things with polymer stamps that you can't do with digis and visa versa.
I think both 'actual' stamps and 'digis' can play a big part in the crafting world :)
I saw on the 'Less is More' Challenge that this weeks theme is a OLC with stripes
so this inspired my creation.
I have used the pre-coloured version here as I haven't a lot of time for colouring just now.
Anyone who buys my digis willl know that they come with a precoloured version as well as an image to colour yourself.....great for when you need a card in a hurry :)

Less is More - OLC with Stripes
Fab n Funky - Try Something New - OLC
Charizma Cards - Things with Wings
Allsorts - Free and Easy February

The sentiment comes from my new 'Owl Sentiments' Set

As you can see there are 6 different sentiments.......each comes as a separate png file.
If you open your png sentiment file on top of some patterned paper in a graphics programme you will see it appears to float above the paper and you can move it around....this is because it has a transparent will see the letters have a nice white border around them like on my card.
You can just print them out onto plain or patterned paper and you will get a blackline sentiment but it must be opened TOGETHER  with the paper in a graphics programme  to get the white border effect....hope I am making sense lol!
DT girl Jenny uses this  graphic software which is free to download and she loves it!

'Owl in Hat' digi can be found here
'Owl Sentiments' here

I designed some stripes in my graphics programme and a number.....imported the image and sentiment......played around until I was happy with the layout by resizing etc then printed it out
Stuck on some gems and  'Viola' or should I say 'Whoo La-La!
