My First Greeting Farm Card

I've been wanting to get my hands on some of the Greeting Farm images for a while and yesterday I finally took the plunge and ordered 4 stamps! Then this morning I found out that they also do Digi Stamps - well I tested the water by ordering 2 of them. Well, it was so easy and such value for money that I ordered another 3!!! As soon as I downloaded them, the door bell rang and there was the postman holding a package of stamps that I'd ordered yesterday - so in a space of an hour I went from owning none of these images to owning 9.

I've had a play with two so far - my Edward rubber stamp and my Soccer Anya digi stamp. What I like about the digi stamps is that the size can be altered. I printed two Soccer Anyas onto an A5 piece of card. I think this will be the size I'll use the most. I really like how the brown hair has turned out but can't remember the coulours I used! Using Windows Picture Viewer, I'll be able to print a variety of images easily - whole pages of the same or mixing and matching - how exciting! To show the diference in size between the ones I've been playing with today, I've placed Edward between the two Anyas.

I used the Anya on the left to make this card for the Anyone for Anya? Challenge. The theme was to use Black and White and one other colour. I chose to use RED for mine. The black and white theme goes well with the football too. The card blank is a digi image too from a Cuddly Buddly set I purchased many moons ago.

It's not obvious in the picture above that it's a card so I took a picture from slightly above too to show how it works. Anya is acting as a stand to keep it up.

Seeing as both the image and the card itself are digi images, I thought I'd also use this to apply for the I LOVE DIGI CHALLENGE design team. I originally had a whole other project in mind for that which I may still finish and show here.
