Digi Stamp Tips for Coloring

This is for you Mary ;)

Print digi images on matte photo paper (JetPrint brand). Then spray the image with a very light coat of workable fixative. Let dry and you can color them with my Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol with no bleeding whatsoever. I have also heard of heat setting your inkjet prints in your oven at 200 degrees for 10 minutes, but have never tried it.

Heat set the images with my heat gun and presto - NO SMEARING!!!

Digital Stamps seem to be all the rage right now. With the economy, it is an inexpensive way to get some new stamps. It is also instant gratification for many stampers. You don't have to wait a few days or longer to get your new images. They come right away and all you have to do is print them off and color away!
