Crafting When We Can Challenges #113 - Use a digital stamp

Over at Crafting When We Can Challenges we have a new sponsor in Nikki from
Melonheadz Illustrating

The prize is 1 Bundle from the store

Theme is Use a digital stamp
The DT were given a choice of a bundle of images from the store.  I chose Bugs.  I thought this could be used for many different projects.  I chose to make a banner by using all 14 images, boy is it long.  I can't find a place big enough in the house to hang it up.  I will make it into 2 banners and take another photo when the light gets better or it stops raining and I can hang it on the washing line.  I used a watercolour back ground from CraftArtist and then I had to 'paint' the inside of the images white as they were line drawings you could see the background through the images.  Once I did this I printed them out onto card and cut a V shape into the bottom to add a bit of interest.  I really enjoyed making this and the images were so easy to colour.  The other project I was thinking of was upcycling a baby cardboard book and sticking the images on to the pages.  Or printing the images onto printable cotton and making a baby quilt from them.  The ideas just keep coming from these images.  Anyhoo here is the really bad pictures of the project.  Will update as soon as I can.

This is a montage of the images I used on the banner.

Hop over to CWWCC and leave us your "digital stamp" projects.  As you can see it doesn't have to be a card.

What a fabulous project! I like your idea for using the images to alter a baby book, but as you say, they could be used for many different things. Thanks for joining us at Stamping Sensations for our February challenge.
