New Addiction!!!! GIMP!!!!!

I have a new addiction!!!!!  I've seen a few people use the GIMP program to colour their stamps digitally and thought I'd try it out.  It's a free program and so far I LOVE IT!!!! I haven't done much except colour in some digi stamps.

The first hour was really confusing but I figured out how to get what I wanted achieved with just experimenting.

I opened up the program and then found the digi stamp where it was stored on my computer.  I couldn't figure out how to import it so I just dragged the image into the work area.

I then went to the Bucket Fill Tool and played around til I got the colours I wanted and these are just some examples of what I did.  I put my watermark on it so it can't be stolen.  These each took me about 2-3 minutes to colour.

HUGE NOTE!!!!  When you are doing a "save as", make sure you save to your desktop OR you will replace your original digi stamp.  I only did this with one and have been really careful with the remaining images I've coloured.

I love this little girlie from Bugaboo Stamps.  She is just too darn cute!!! Thanks Jodi!!!!

  1. I'm still struggling with this program for some reason. I guess it just isn't making sense to me. Glad you are enjoying it - I had heard it was good.
