Tuesday Morning Sketches: #75

Good morning! Melissa from Tuesday Morning Sketches has a fun sketch to start the new year off right. This week our sponsor is Gingerloft and the digital stamp I chose is called "The Kiss". We also have a new guest designer for January: Imke of Crafting Creations by Imke.

I had a plan when I started making this card.... I had the papers layed out and wanted to print the image on cream CS with Chocolate Chip ink. I searched until I found the right color formula, programmed the printer, printed the image...only to find that it printed in black and white! Hmmm, I can print colored text but not an image! If anyone out there can tell me how to print a colored image, I would love to learn how! Anyway, I had to switch gears and change my plan. I thought this paper went nicely with the vintage type image as well, so I went with it. I chose vellum for the corner layers; I like how the DP shows through. I used some Swarovski crystals to accent the diecuts and finished it off with a black ribbon.

Image: Gingerloft Digital Stamp
Ink: SU! Black Marker
Paper: PTI Raspberry Fizz and True Black, The Paper Studio Vellum, Echo Park DP
Embellies: "Jet" Swarovski Crystals, Black Grosgrain Ribbon
Extras: Spellbinder's Nestabilities

I can't wait to see what images the rest of the DT chose to use on their cards; you can check them out here! Also, I would love to see YOU play along!

Thanks for stopping by today; have a good one!

Angela, thanks for your welcome :-)

Your card is so lovely ! I like the colors and the scripted DP looks great. The Vellum Circle also, because you can see the DP through-very pretty.

I had the same problem with my image. I wanted to print it in blue and it doesn´t work too....

adorable, the colors you ended up with are wonderful for the image (however, I'm sure the others would have been great as well!!

Angela, this is lovely, what a beautiful image! I love the pink, black and white combo, very feminine and elegant. I think you need to use a photo editing program to change color on an image, I don't think it is possible through MS word. Of course I'm not a computer whiz, so I may be mistaken.
