There are two great sponsors for this challenge:

Lemon Shortbread Stamps

This week I decided to play with a Lemon Shortbread Stamps digital image (Lemon Shortbread was kind enough to share some images with the KBD design team) and picked Strawberry Hat Girl since in my mind, strawberries equal summer.

I decided to try something a little different with this digital stamp… I decided to paper piece it.  I printed out the digital stamp four times, once on white card stock, and three times on different patterned paper.  I fussy cut out the patterned paper and glued them down onto the white card stock image.  Then using my colored pencils, I filled in the gaps and colored her hair and skin.  I lost the strawberry seeds in the printing, so I guessed where they should go, using a black colored pencil to mark them.

I thought this was a kind of fun way to fill in a digital stamp…trust me I will be doing this again.
