Digital class and freebies

I taught a digital class last night at my Sweet friend Crystals' (AKA Super Stamp Girl) last night, What a great time!  I met 4 wonderful ladies and taught on "hybrid" card making.
One thing about card making and card makers I really like to stress; you need to "follow your bliss" (boy that's an 80's term)!!  There is no right or wrong, no hard fast rules and no card police!  I love using and teaching digital because it give us the ability to expand our personal art expression!

I prepared a simple hand out for the ladies outlining the basics of acquiring images and storing them. I know I've gone to classes and while I am there I am genius and everything makes sense.  I get home however and I can hardly remember the first thing to do, hence a hand out!

I had three examples of digital cards:
Each student had a "Kit" of each card

This card was the example of colored images and a added digital sentiment:





This is an example of a simple B+W with a text box insert done in word:
coloring was also done by students.






This card is an example of using commercial paper for backgrounds and a rubber stamped sentiment
I also altered this image to have Audrey holding a pen between her teeth. I just couldn't glorify smoking even in art - I worked in hospice and saw what tobacco does to people. 


I love this card and it makes me think of one of my best friends..

I also promised the ladies that if they stopped over to my blog I would have thier images here  for them to practice acquiring digital images!
So here they are and you can have them too!













Last and not least a list of websites for more images and links!
