Roberta says about herself :-Hello! I am Roberta from Prairie Fairy Designs. I am a new digital stamp company featuring artwork not only created by me but also my two kids, ages 8 and 11. They are featured on the site as the Fairy Princess and the Prairie Prince.
I have been an artist for as long as I can remember and have always loved to create. Two years ago my sister-in-law invited me to a rubber stamp party. I laughed and said "Maybe I will buy something if I can use it to stamp on canvases.". Needless to say, I was hooked! Two years later and a lot of learning about computers, I have finally accomplished my goal.
While digital stamping is relatively new in the papercrafting scene, it is what I believe to be such an amazing tool. Printed images have such clarity and vibrancy and gone is the need to re stamp an image because you didn't press hard enough or maybe you pressed too hard! They are also a lot easier to store and they can be reprinted over and over again. The fact that you can rotate and flip files, print them off the size of a postage stamp or as large as a scrapbook page makes them such a versatile medium. It is my sincere hope that I can help anyone who has hesitations about using digital images to embrace these amazing creative tools. If you have any questions about going digital, check out the site and the blog for more information. So head on over to http://www.prairiefairydesigns.com/ and check it out!
And heres my card created from one of her beautiful images,
Ive created a 6"x 6" card, and I have used four papers from the Nitwit "Sandcastles" Collection. The first paper Ive used is a patchwork one and this has been mounted onto a piece of yellow card, my second mount is a blue stitched design on a piece of blue card, for my third layer Ive used a yellow paper and the beach punch from EK Success punches. For my final mount Ive used another blue paper on a piece of blue card and this was stuck across the centre of my base card.
My image was printed onto white card and coloured with my copic pens then punched out using the new Nestabilitie No.11 label die, and a mount was cut out by drawing around the edge of the same die then cut out with scissors. These were then stuck together with some foam tape. The sentiment is a circle stamp that also was punched out then mounted on to an inverted die cut out, to make it look like sun rays. To finish of Ive used some beach buttons that I found in my craft stash.
