A whole new world

I may be a little slow off the mark, but I make up for it..believe me!! A friend of mine introduced me to the world of digital stamps. It isn't like I didn't know they were out there, I just never really thought about them much...well now I have and I've jumped in with both feet and have a ton of them just waiting to be printed.

This is one of the first images I purchased...It is a Mo Manning image and I decided to use it to make a thank you card for Jessie's swim coach. I would have loved to find something with a girl on the blocks or at least in a suit with goggles but this is all I have found so far. I found paper at my LSS that had a swimming theme and cut out the part I wanted. I ran my base layer through the BS with my cuttlebug retro circles folder ( I decided they kinda looked like bubbles). Once I finished colouring the image I added crystal effects to the puddle at her feet..it doesn't show in the picture but it does look like she is standing in water.

Keep a lookout for me and let me know if you come across any "real" swimming images!

Thanks for having a look.
