Happy Easter to Ewe!

I am so excited to share this cute little Easter card with you. It is my very first card as a guest designer for MyScrapChick.com. Kristi, the amazing owner and illustrator has expanded her store full of paper piecing patterns and cut files to include digi stamps. Not only are her files high quality, she includes two files per image -one plain line art and one with shadows. I selected the Lamb image with shadows for this project and I just love how it turned out. The shading on the image blended perfectly with my copics and I was able to deepen the shadows with very little coloring. If you would like to get your hands on some Freebie digis from MyScrapChick, become a facebook fan. Kristi has posted some free digi's on their facebook fan page here. She will add more when they get to 200 fans.

COPIC TIP:
White is never really white and black is never really black. To add depth and dimension to my Lamb, I used Warm Gray copics. For his white fur I used- W00, W1, W3 and for his black hooves, I used W9, W7, W5, W3.

DIGI TIP:
I have been playing around with my inkjet printer settings and have found my perfect combo for printing my digis- For my Epson RX595, I select Best Photo mode and Premium Matte Presentation Paper settings while printing on PTI Stampers Select White Cardstock and then my digis don't smear with I color over the lines with extensive amounts of colorless blender. Let your images dry thoroughly or heat set before coloring and you should have little to no smearing.
