Fireworks Celebration

The first Monday of the month means a new project for Jan's Digital Stamp Shop Challenge Blog. This month I am show casing Jan's pre-colored images. I have shown plain coloring, the digis paired with digital paper, but still handcolored and also using the digis in a digital art app to color and design.


I am working with the new Rocket Man stamp set (linked below). I imported both the firework image and the little man image into Silhouette Studio. I placed the firework burst on a rectangle sized at 4.25x5.5 inches and placed the little man in front of the burst and sized him accordingly. Once he was correct, I moved him to a different page as I wanted to cut him out as a separate element. I printed both parts out and then cut the focal image out on my Silhouette cameo. I also cut his shape out two more times out of black cardstock. I prefer to use black cardstock for the dimension rather than white as it helps give a nice finished edge.

I ran a black marker along the edge of the printed digi and glued it to the black shape. I cut the burst out with a stitched rectangle die and added it to a blue notecard at on angle.

I completed the card by adding the focal element and also a "Celebrate" die cut. 

We would love to see your creations in our challenge over a Jan's Digital Stamp Shop Challenge Blog. The challenge goes for a month and is Anything Goes.
