I was fortunate enough recently to win a voucher for DigiStamp Boutique, and as I've got a couple of days' holiday from work (yippee!), this morning I chose and downloaded my images - it was quite difficult to choose as there were so many gorgeous ones, but I got there in the end!
I don't often use digis, and when I have in the past I have just printed them off and coloured them in. This time, though, I decided to experiment with one or two techniques printing straight to my base card and/or designer paper, and layering images. Here are the results ...
My first card was very much influenced by an example on the DigiStamp Boutique website here; and involved resizing my flower image and printing straight to a pre-cut piece of dp, along with a computer generated sentiment. I then coloured the flower tips using a white gel pen.

My layout of my second card was heavily influenced by a card I was once sent by the lovely Katina, who has designed for DigiStamp Boutique. This one was a lot more difficult than it looks as it was very tricky to align the printing to the correct part of the card to accommodate the fold, and then also print it onto patterned paper. It took quite a few goes to get this one right, but I have saved the "template" so it will be easier next time lol!
