Have you ever tried to do something just to have every piece of technology you encounter turn against you like the evil electronic spawn they are? No? come on it can't just be me!!!   

Here is my story, I tried printing images using my ipad and wireless printer, {they are not friendly} and after it FINALLY decided to print it printed on photo paper with no options to resize or choose the main paper I decided to try coloring the fun golf pants image  by crafty secrets with copics on my photo paper. 
Success! HUGE success, its glossy, didn't smear and the colors blend seamlessly! I never would have thought to try this if it weren't for the demonic devices printing mistake and my curiosity taking the wheel! 

I ended up trimming some of the image away to fit the 5.5" X 5.5" card center, but it looks crisp and fresh that way! I finished up with ribbon, and twine, and paper trimmings for a bight and cheerful yet still decidedly masculine look! I am loving working with digital stamps even if my craftroom gadgets are silently plotting to take over the world!    It saves space and valuable resources to use digital products, I love movies, books, music, and paper craft supplies all in digital form!
 what about you?

I would never have thought to do this, Shantaie, but the end result is totally fabulous! I love the fresh colors you used, the fun way you cropped the image, and the amazing bow treatment. I just love your work!!!!
