My First Digital Stamp!

Hi, everyone!

Today I wanted to try something different.  I've been hearing about digital stamps for a while now, but I haven't really tried to look into it.  Until Scrappy Moms Stamps announced that for their Terrific Tuesday Challenge, we need to use a digital element in our card to play along.

What an awesome excuse to try something new!

I picked out a free digital stamp from Digital Delights by Louby Loo, Rowena the Fish.  She was perfect, because one of my cousins got engaged, and I wanted to make her an engagement card.

Before I share my card, I do want to say the following:
1.  This is my first digital stamp (I was not sure how to use it, but Digital Delights by Louby Loo actually had instructions on their site, so that was really helpful for a newbie like me)
2.  I was never good at coloring when I was younger (and the skill did not improve with age, as you can see)
3.  I wanted to use a circle framelit, but I do not own one (boo!), so now I have an excuse to hoard buy more tools/supplies.
4.  I used Stampin' Write Markers, which are the best quality markers I own currently.  The faults in coloring are mine, and is not a reflection of the markers (I love my Stampin' Writes!).  Do I hear anyone say Copics?  Please see #3 above. :p

In short, please be gentle with me when looking at my card.  Comments are of course always welcome, and very appreciated.  Tips/tricks/suggestions, as well. :)

And because I'm a glutton for punishment all about sharing with you what I make, here is the digital stamp up close:

I used the following to make my card:
Digital stamp:  Rowena the Fish (Digital Delights by Louby Loo)
Sentiment stamp:  My Pink Stamper (now retired)
Paper:  Light blue, light green, and white card stock from my stash
Ink:  Jet Black StazOn
Embellishment:  Blue-green rhinestones from my stash
Tools:  Scalloped Squares Nestabilities; Seeing Spots embossing folder (Cuttlebug), Big Shot, Stampin' Write Markers

Thanks for looking, and have a great day!
