Ai Foil for the Featured Stamper Challenge at SCS

I love to try to make a card to CASE the Featured Stamper on Splitcoaststampers each Sunday....does not always happen, but I love it when it does!

This Sunday, the Featured Stamper is joanne or jojot. I picked this card from her gallery- and then was to change three things. First, no DP- I made a BG called Ai Foil from the TJ newsletter. No punches in the corners, no pearls or brads- just added piercing. I colored the image with Copic markers- the image is a free digi download from this site (If you have trouble finding it- look around July 24-27th) and I originally found it on SCS when another papercrafter uploaded a card using it. I need alot of practice with the digi images to figure out how to resize them and make them larger or smaller.
The last time we needed new printer ink. I went to a 'cartridge refill' store. The color of the printing has a green hue to it after I print an image or two, so it is hard to also figure out how to not print in the middle of a page when I print just one or two images.....- lots to learn....but I guess I have a lot to learn to catch up with modern technology.
One more thing I found this morning while looking for digital image info this post on Free Vintage Digital images every Tuesday Now these look outstanding, don't they???

I would love to know what sites or sources you use for digital images!

Thanks for stopping by,

PS I am going to send this card to my Technique Junkie swap card partner for August. We have a Just One swap, where we have a partner and I send her a card and she sends me one. It is optional and I would guess about 40-50 ladies participate each month. It is a fun way to see not only beautiful cards, but have a first hand look at techniques from the TJ newsletter. Oh, if you are interested or curious, Here is a link for the site- if you go there and get hooked...don't blame me!!
