MDS Monday - Blending with Digital Stamps

A couple of months ago, I posted a peek of an MDS stamped image that I had coloured with Blendabilities.

What a fabulous discovery to make!

It widened the possibilities of my Blendabilities colouring options by a massive percentage and came to my rescue just a few weeks ago.

My sweet niece and Goddaughter made her First Holy Communion at the end of last month, and with a dire shortage of appropriate stamp images, I hit up MDS for the solution.

I was able to search for, locate, purchase and download a set of suitable images all within a three minute time frame and for the royal total of $2.50.

And here's what resulted...

The beauty of digital stamps is that they can be resized, so this one is more than double its original size, enabling me to make it a real feature.

The colour combination was dictated by the extent of Blendabilities that I had available to me at the time. I have since purchased further sets and am on my way to owning the whole shebang, but for the stained glass like result that I was aiming for, the colours that I had did the job beautifully.

The greeting was able to be added neatly with the help of the perfectly shaped banner Thinlit from the Label Card set. The "For You" is part of a larger greeting "Here For You" from the And Many More stamp set, but with some careful aiming, I was able to eliminate the word I didn't want and the remaining ones that I did want fit neatly inside the banner.

Check out the options that MDS can afford you with regard to colouring - you might find a whole new world of possibilities like I did!

You can trial MDS free for 30 days, or invest just $24.95 and it's yours to keep. It comes pre-installed with a bunch of content and there are new downloads available every month. Sweet!

Thanks for popping in and for your patience as I adjust to the new routine that I have now that I have added the realm of postgraduate study to my life as mentioned in my previous post. It's a juggle for sure, and some days it feels like all the balls that I'm trying so hard to keep in the air are falling down all around me, but nothing worth doing is ever smooth sailing all of the time, right?!!
