I printed this digital image in a mid-tone gray, except for the sentiment, which I printed in black. Some of you have asked what card stock works well for printing digital images, and that's not the simplest question to answer. My printer, a Canon MG7500, is really not very particular about what card stock I run through it; so anything that I want to color on generally goes through my printer with no problem. If your printer is more finicky, you may have to use a thinner, or lighter weight, card stock. X-Press It Blending card is lighter than some of my white card stock, and for lighter weight card stock than X-Press It, I've had success with Hammermill Digital Color Cover Copy 80lb..
Shown above are the Copic markers that I used to color the Everything's Rosy image. Images look very different to me printed in a lighter ink vs. black ink.
Here's the inside of my card: I used the same Everything's Rosy image, but printed it in a pink ink so that I could write over it with black ink if I wanted to. (If you're still trying to figure out how to print digital images in color, Julie Koerber has an excellent tutorial on that process HERE.)
My patterned paper background is from the Authentique 6 x 6 Bundle Collection Crush, and ribbon is simply white rayon seam binding. Would you like to see what the other Power Poppy Instant Gardeners have come up with for Everything's Rosy? (They're fabulous, I promise!) We're happy to be welcoming Barb Walker to the team this month too! Thanks for visiting,
