In Praise of Digital Papers.

I just love Digital Papers, and one of the reasons why is that you can print them out to any size you want...which means I can have any of my lovely papers scaled down for my ATC's. These papers are freebies - can't beat that for price now can you - from Colour Throwdown, to go with their challenge this week. My image is a freebie that I had a few months ago, one of Baby Buds, isn't she the cutest, she's called Snow Drop....but as you can see I've coloured her up somewhat for a snow drop.

 I'd seen this sketch on someone's blog and was hoping to enter it in the challenge...I forgot to take the name, so if you know who it belongs to can you let me know. Sadly, I'm too late for the ATC challenge I was going to put this in, but it will be going off to someone as a swap this month. 

A little close up. The dotty background I saw demo'd by Dana on Dana's Inspirations and you can see her great tutorial here. I couldn't wait to give it a try when I saw it.

She's sooooo cute! You did an awesome job coloring. The papers match so well. I tried the dotted background quite a while back, but I was never satisfied with mine, but you did a great job. Hugs, dj

Cutie she is! Nice job with digital papers. The way you have coloured her face is so nice. (I'm like Sherlock Holmes with my magnifying glass here, looking at every detail). It really is girly altogether :)
