I am excited to release a BRAND NEW digi today called "Winter Cardinal Digital Stamp". I had so much fun creating this little birdie. I started to color him up in my Adobe Ideas app and then had an idea to create my watermarked digi image showing the start of my coloring. I think it is fun to see the color and it also makes this listing "POP" in my 2cuteink etsy shop! I also show the cute birdie without color as shown below :)
So last night I created this cute little owl snowboarding. I was thinking about giving him boots but then decided to just show his feet. I also decided to make him wearing purple gear because purple is my favorite color! I have never snowboarded before but I think it would be fun to try some day!
I have released two new digital stamps, "Give Thanks" and "Happy Sunflower"! These are fun and simple designs that just make you smile! I love being able to draw in different styles and making things simple to more detailed. I also have discovered I really like creating word art! Both digital stamps are now in my 2Cuteink Etsy Shop!

I am happy to release a new digital stamp called "Fall in Love Kitties". I have been trying to sketch more and when I posted the sketch below in my fb group it really got a lot of "likes". So this gave me the incentive to ink and turn them into a cute digi! I was debating if I should make the cats "hairy" or leave more of a solid line and I chose to do a solid line. I actually inked this digital stamp in a new app calle Adobe Illustrator Draw with the brush tool. This app is suppose to replace Adobe Ideas which I currently use. So far it is not to bad, just a little different with where things are. I think I may do a review on both Ideas and Draw next week and maybe even haven video! Fall in Love Kitties Digital Stamp is now available in my 2CuteInk Etsy Shop.

So yesterday I decided to draw a winter cardinal. I thought it would be fun to give him a scarf and make him look like he is keeping warm with all that snow! I love adding coloring to my sketches because I think it makes them come alive!
Sketching and Inking a Simple Pumpkin in Adobe Ideas for Digital Stamp Line Art to Make Shrinky Dinks!
Today I decided to take a video while holding my iPhone and drawing lol! It probably wasn't the smartest thing to do because it was hard to keep the phone steady and draw. But I think I was able to do a decent job in creating a simple pumpkin to experiment more with shrink art paper. Now I just need to make a sheet of these pumpkins on the computer and then print out on shrink art paper and get to coloring. I may make a few smaller and a few bigger so I can see the shrinking sizes and have a guide. I plan on releasing this template guide a long with a tutorial in my etsy shop so you can then take any digital stamp and resize accordingly and learn how to use shrink art paper and digital stamps!
I REALLY had fun last night experimenting with shrink art paper and digital stamps. I figured out that you can print a digital stamp on shrink art paper! So I did just that and printed out a few designs and decided to color up my latest digi "fall pumpkin". I used prisma color pencils and also the prisma color scholar pencils to color him in. Over all I think he turned out great but next time I want to color with sharpie markers, maybe make him shrink a bit smaller and also put a hole in the actual stem of the pumpkin vs a hole above. I think dangle earrings would be cute to make don't you think? I can't wait to experiment more and today I actually drew up a simple pumpkin design to do experimenting with different sizes and coloring techniques. I just had to take a video of the pumpkin shrinking (you can see the video here), i think it is pretty cool how it does that. Oh and don't forget to follow my 2Cuteink Youtube channel for I plan to be posting more videos.
I am excited to share this cute new design with you called "Fall Pumpkin Digital Stamp". I had a fun time creating this design and I hope to create something cute later on today with this image! I am thinking about doing another video on how to ink a digital stamp in adobe ideas, but I need to find a better way to capture the video.
