Ethereal Florals Digital Stamps

Here’s the newest digital stamp set available for download at  A Creative Need.   I wanted to put together a floral set that would adapt well to water colouring as it’s such a fun and favoured way to color images!  Of  course they can be coloured any way you are most comfortable with. 🙂 Ethereal Florals Stamp Set   I’d love to hear what you think of these.  I value your opinions and love to know what you are looking for in your digital images.

Watercolor Flowers for Mother’s Day

Have any of you tried Corel Painter?  I am playing with digital water coloring in the 30 day trial version of Corel Painter X3 right now and I have to say that I love the ‘real watercolor’ brushes!  I was inspired to play in this week’s SCS IC438 so I painted these flowers to get a feel for the different brushes and I’m happy with the results. What do you think?  I am really a beginner of course so don’t judge to harshly! 🙂  I have a lot to learn, but I still think it’s pretty! Traditionally, I’ve painted with acrylics, but I just love the look of water colors and painting and blending colors is so soothing to me, so I thought this was a great time to practice.  I used my new digital stamp illustration as a starting point for the painting and this is what I ended up with.  Now, if only I could afford to buy the software!   Here’s the Mother’s Day CAS card I made with it too…         and finally, here is …

Easter Printables and A Freebie!

I have made a couple of Easter Prints to decorate the house and for sale in my ACNPRINTABLEART SHOP.  I thought I would share one of them as a free printable for you today too. First up is my HAPPY EASTER CHICKS Digtial Printable that I’ve made using my Digital Chicks image.  I painted the chicks using watercolor brushes in Corel, and created the typography using My Memories software.  If you look closely, you can see that the letters are filled in with my Digital Sponge Dots dp.   Now for your FREEBIE!  I made this Easter Poster with my Digital Image Easter Bunny.  Click on the Image below and Save the .jpg file. Print as large as 8X10″”   Have a creative day!

For the Love of Coffee Digital Art

Do you recognize the image? It is one of my earlier sketches that I digitized for use as a digi stamp. It is one of my original favorites, probably because of my love for coffee! I used the image here as a reference for my painting in Corel Painter. I used a captured bristle brush and smeary palette knife with some blending tools for most of the painting and detail work.  The backgrounds were created in Photoshop with use of coffee stain brushes and layered colors in cream, orange, and blue. I so enjoy painting like this.  I would love to hear what you think. Thanks for stopping by! Deena   A Creative Need Digital Stamp Images   ACN PRINTABLES SHOP
