Digi Makeover Challenge #1

Digi Makeover Challenges are here by Paper Makeup Stamps!  Be sure to check out the PMS Blog for all the participation and prize details.  This week's challenge is to use the Paper Makeup colors of Pink, Gray, Black and White.

I absolutely loved Jami's card from a few week's ago using the Jill digi where she omitted the wings and cheek circles.  That card made me want to learn more about using digi stamps and the different ways you can manipulate them.  And I totally {heart} the flexibility it gives the images!  It's so much easier to erase part of the digi image ( I used GIMP) and print it that way than it is to mask tiny areas on a rubber stamp.  And while I love the fairies, it's so fun to use them as non-fairies too!  I can see myself using this technique over and over again.  {grin}

For my card I've used the digi of the Beautiful Day Fairy named Rose.  Many of the fairies have been available as digi stamps for a limited time only when they were first released.  Well, guess what?!  They will be back in the store again as digis very soon - Rose included!   After omitting her wings and cheek circles, I printed her out and colored her with Prismacolor pencils and baby oil.  The pink DP is from Kaisercraft Blushed.  The sparkly paper is actually SU! Basic Gray that I ran through my xyron and covered with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.  You can't beat that for lots of sparkle!
