She Sells Sea Shells

Greetings!  Thanks for dropping by today!  Today I am sharing with you a card made completely with Digital Images from Gecko Galz, featuring the She Sells Sea Shells Collage Sheet and the La Isla Bonita Paper Set released at the beginning of July.  Probably like many of you, I have been a rubber stamp purist for nearly 18 years. By fortune, Leanne, the owner of Gecko Galz, reached out to me and asked me to consider being a guest designer several years ago. Not being one to turn down an opportunity to grow, I said yes, and admitted I had never worked with digital images before.  I still rely heavily on my rubber stamp images, and probably always will, but I have finally become absolutely comfortable and feel very creative working with the stunning images featured at GG!  They are easy to re-size, take up no shelf space, and no matter how much I increase the size, the clarity remains perfect.  If you have not had the opportunity to visit Gecko Galz, I hope you will!  There's a great sale going on during July, too! Best, Yvonne

Lovely seaside creation, Yvonne! I would say you have mastered the digi world and I love this! 18 years with rubber stamping, WOW! I first touched a rubber stamp in 2007 and took another two years to become addicted! Enjoy!

Love it, Yvonne! Great balance...in both color and design!

I love my rubber stamps, but digi ones give other possibilities due to resizing and other computer techniques for color, non colors etc. I love combining the use of both digi and rubber. I use precolored images when not in the mood for coloring, mostly rubber ones for paper piecing.
Rubber or digi, what I love about your style is your way of combing images.
