Adding Dimension to Digital Stamps

Hello everyone.  Today we are exploring how to create a greeting card with dimension using a digital stamp.
Once you purchase a digital, you can print it as many times as you want, but digital stamps are usually someone's original artwork and different artists have different rules about using their stamps, so please read their rules and respect them.  

For this card I downloaded the "Hello Horsey" digital stamp and printed it twice onto a page of printer friendly watercolor paper.  Arteza markers were used to color the entire stamp once, then to color the child and fence image a second time. 

Links to the products I used are at the end of the blog if you are interested, but you don't have to use these products to print a digital stamp.  I like to use my watercolor markers, but it is more economical to print the stamp onto a good quality paper or cardstock and use other types of markers to color them. The printer friendly watercolor paper is a little pricey.
The fence and child were cut out and foam tape liberally added to the back. This is the piece that will add dimension to the card.
The colored panel was trimmed and glued to an A2 sized kraft card base, a little off center, just because, then the child and fence piece was added on top. 

Since this image is about a quiet moment between the child and the horse, a discreet "hello" sentiment was cut from black cardstock and glued in place.
I hope you liked this card idea.  Thank you for joining me today.
