Ever since my Paper Players bloggin’ buddy Cindy posted on her blog that you don’t need the entire My Digital Studio program to use the downloads, I have been toying with the idea of buying a couple, just to try them out. My fear was that I am not too computer-savvy when it comes to coloring images and I knew I didn’t want to just print things out in black all the time! She gave me some hints about using the Paint program, and although some of the brush sets do not work in Paint, I have been able to play around a little and actually printed out one of the images from the Old Saint Nick set to make this card:
Pretty simple, but I wasn’t going for complex at this stage of the game! I did have some issues with getting the RGB value to match the Cherry Cobbler cardstock; it is probably my printer, which is soon-to-be discarded. I had some leftover skinny pieces of the Glimmer Silver cardstock that I placed behind my panel and I used a little punch from the Itty Bitty Punch Pack to add a bit of zing to the center of the embossed snowflake. I have more to learn about My Digital Studio, but I was at least happy to have one project under my belt!
