Charlie's going digital

Today is a digital release day dedicated all to Charlie Horse. Today is the release of Charlie Digital Stamps. You can see the full reveal on the Clear Dollar Stamps Blog.

My first card is using the new digital image


I printed Charlie and the sentiment directly to my card base. I printed out extra Charlies and cut out, sponged and adhered for dimension.

For the fence I used the faux wood technique using reds. Then I embossed using the CB Distress Stripes Embossing folder.

My second card uses the new digital image


I enlarge the image to the full size of my 5" card in Microsoft Publisher. Then I printed it onto my card base. I then printed it again onto my papers and cut out in layers. I dry embossed the worn parchment layer for my fence. This is pretty easy and is flat too.

Love them both, Lisa! I'm totally intrigued by how you colored the first image with spongeing -- I wouldn't ever have thought to do that! Thanks for the inspiration! :-)
