Tea Time Digital Stamps
Jessica Leigh Gill
To create my spread (you can get a sneak peek of it below), I first created my collage/mixed media background using patterned paper, vintage text, gesso, Golden Acrylic Paints and Lumiere paints … and a whole lot of layers! Then I let it dry overnight.
I printed the two images onto vellum paper, and then I colored in the images using colored pencils. Then I tore around the edges of the images, and adhered them to my dried background. I then chose a quote from Ralph Waldo Emerson, and embellished with ribbon, fabric flowers, sequins and brads.
It was a pretty simple collage, really, but I’m really happy with the way it turned out. The photo doesn’t reveal how sparkly the collage really is (from the Lumiere paints). I just hope that my friend that I’m sending this book to will enjoy the book as much as I am enjoying creating it… and how much I am enjoying using these digital stamps. They add the perfect touch to my project, don’t you think?

Where to Buy:
Well, now that I have tried using digital stamps, I’m really loving it. They’re not only simple to use and much easier to store than rubber stamps, they’re also quite economical! This lovely image is just $3.00!
About my project: This is a very simple card, using some left over scrapbook paper (over the years, I’ve amassed a LOT of paper). The kraft cardstock is made from recycled paper and I acquired it from my favorite art supply store, Collage!
I printed the image on pink vellum and then colored in the image using colored pencils. It’s hard to see in the image, but I also added a few tiny heart-shaped rhinestones to embellish the card a little bit.
It’s a pretty simple design but I’m happy with it. I hope that my SweeTea likes it too!
This was an incredibly fun digital stamp from Freshly Brewed Designs! Perfect for Valentine’s Day, or for any occasion when you want to celebrate your love of tea (or… coffee, I guess). Even if you’re an “old-school” artist/crafter like me, I think you’ll find that you can easily incorporate digital stamps into your repertoire. They’re so versatile and simple to use, once you’ve tried them, you’ll probably wonder “what took me so long?” I know I did!
