I would like to wish you all a happy Memorial Day! Hopefully the BBQ's are fired up and you are enjoying a day outdoors with friends and family.
In honor of Memorial Day and our fallen soldiers, I decided to create a quick and easy patriotic card. Today's version was done in MDS for my digital fans out there. Projects like these can be created quickly and posted to facebook or sent via email, or printed out and used for paper projects too (cards, scrapbook pages, party decorations, etc.).
A couple quick MDS Tool Tips that make this card possible:
- Coloring Tool:
I quickly modified the Land of the Free Digital Stamp Brush Set Digital Download image using the coloring tool. Simply place your stamp on your project, click on the coloring tool and using the brush tool color as you choose. The more detailed the stamp, the smaller the digital brush head you want to use when coloring! For my postcard, I was able to use the largest brush size.
- Recoloring Designer Series Paper:
The striped papers I used at the top and bottom of my postcard are from the Downtown Grunge Designer Series Paper available in the Downtown Grunge Photobook Template Digital Download. All of the papers in this set are done in shades of Basic Black, Crumb Cake and Very Vanilla. I simply clicked on the recolor tool, and clicked on Midnight Muse - now my designer series paper coordinates with my colored stamp!
If you haven't yet delved into the world of digital, I strongly recommend you take the FREE 30 Day Trial - or leap in feet first, for only $20 how far wrong can you go?
