Are There Fairies in Your Garden?



I wanted to show you a little trick to getting a "ready made" background for your image. Make it Crafty's digi stamps come in a png. format which has the background removed. This means you can layer them onto a digi paper background BEFORE printing off and the colouring areas will remain white - see the example on the left where I'm moving the image into position. This is different to when I  paper pieced using a digital paper in THIS post - in that case I printed the paper off first and then popped it through the printer to print the digi off.

I hope you have some fun playing with this technique and exploring more fun ways to use your digis.
