Once in a while I like to change things up and in today's projects I altered the cutting files and used them in a way they weren't originally intended to be used. I have this nifty little software plug-in that lets me make a line drawing out of just about anything. ( It's a very old plug in and I don't believe it is available anymore.) Anyway, I just couldn't resist making digital stamps from the file and coloring them up to make these cards. The images I used to make my cards are from Treasure Box Designs and it is actually a cutting file that you can see here. THEY ARE NOT AVAILABLE AS STAMPS.
These little fireflies are just the cutest things aren't they? On my first card I used the single bug alone and since I didn't have the right paper to use, I created my own paper and printed it off so it would match my images. All of the background papers used on both cards were made by me.
Treasure Box Designs and it is NOT AVAILABLE as a stamp. I did that myself, using my plug in, since I am only using it to create a personal card.
This next card I created using the double bugs from the 'Love Is In The Air' cut files.
Such cute expressions!!!! More hand doodled dots were added and highlights with a white gel pen. I kept this card simple and added only a lace paper doily and a bow.
Treasure Box Designs. She has other adorable Valentine files too. Check back in a few days when I will be showing this same file done as a paper pieced project, like it was intentionally designed for. Sometimes, ya just gotta be different :~)
