Groovy Baby

Hi All!  I hope that everyone had a great weekend- I'm so sad it's over!  I had some time to do some coloring recently and had to take the opportunity to put together a pair of stamps from the new Perfect Match release over at Tickled Pink Stamps.  I love the concept of making matches to stamps that were already in existence, and after seeing an inspiring line from Little Yellow Bicycle called Free Spirit I knew that the first pair I wanted to get on a card would have to be '60's Willow and Stefan.  I love using digital stamps because of the versatility and this is a perfect example of that- I tried something new and actually cropped and merged the two stamps leaving a heavy black circular border that I cut along once they were colored.  I'm pretty pleased with the results and will definitely try something like this again...especially since there are so many perfect matches now available at Tickled Pink!  Plus, instead of only offering the digital version of the stamps for one week like usual, the owner Kellie is offering digi's for the whole month of June...Is it sad how excited that makes me?  Anyways, moving on :)  I hope that everyone has themselves a very groovy week!
