PIP FANS Unite!! Challenge #1730

Hello Again PIP Fans!!  I'm so glad to be sharing another fun challenge with you :)  Anything goes this week so you have no excuse for not entering!!  Our Sponsor is

The set I used today is Rose Block Trio.
Bugaboo generously supplied me with this stamp.  I chose it because I was anxious to try digital coloring with it!!  Wow! look at those results! 
I used the sliding scale color adjuster and the selection tool to single out areas.  Then I just saturated the petals one or 2 at a time with color until I had the hombre effect I was looking for!  
 I did the same with the leaves and stem adding the "colored pencil" filter to give them more color dimension. I love the saturated, lip stick effect on the petals, so no additional filter there :)

I also made a second card stretching and squashing each block separately and then stacking them how I wanted on a Word Doc to print.  I love the simple elegance of the black and white.  I think it would be great for a formal occasion, but since I don't have one of those I decided on "hello" so I could use it ASAP!! 


If you're hooked on Nuvo Drops like I am, here's a fun way to Try them out or just to be sure you like the placement, size & color before you commit!! Drop your dots onto the slick plastic that comes with cling stamps!  When I mess up or don't like what I've got I just grab a napkin & wipe them off to start over! No commitment until you've let them dry and then stick them down (I use liquid glue).  The sheets are clear so it looks just like it will once you've peeled & stuck them down :)  Really great if you want to add dots everywhere but don't want to over-do it!!!!
After printing them I just fussy cut and added them to a card base I had stamped with my favorite corner flourishes from Hot Off The Press at - Decorative Card Flaps

So easy and all stored away in my PC file to quickly size and print any time I'm needing a quick card!!  Technology can be so crazy cool!!!
