Wee Henry Goes Snorkeling

I hope your Independence Day was warm enough to hit the beach or a pool, like my friend "Wee Henry" (from Hambo Stamps) did today.


I used a large copy of the Wee Henry digi-image to make this card today.  It's one of the things I like so much about digi-images versus stamps -- that is, that they can be sized to suit your mood.  And they're quick to purchase (online, via PayPal, it took less than 5 minutes) and inexpensive (less than $3 for this image, for unlimited number of uses). 

I colored Wee Henry using Copic markers. They're my favorite! If you haven't gotten any yet, be sure to find your favorite retailer (online or retail) and make your buys before Copic International's mandatory price increase coming soon. Copics are refillable, and the nibs are replaceable, and great for blending, highlighting and shadowing.

The shaded blue papers on the left of the card (at the fold) is actually a trimmed down paint chip card I got at my local paint/hardware store.  Pretty nifty, ehhh?

I also use Prisma colored pencils and Gamsol for coloring finer images, or ones where I don't yet have the right shade of Copic marker. 

Have you tried digi-images yet?  And how do you color the images?

Wee Henry is a cutie and you did a great job on this card. I discovered digis a couple of months ago, and now I can't get enough of them.
