Dustin Pike- Fisherman

I bought this Dustin Pike image a week or so ago and thought I should justify my spending by actually using it. I have so many stamps (the digital images are multipying like crazy) that I have been trying to buy less because I fear that I'll never have enough time to get to them all. This image was part of a bundle of stamps 10 for $10 so how could I resist? Of course there are more bundles and more individual stamps. The DT members must be going wild with all the images he comes out with. I can only imagine. This is where digi meets rubber. I paired the Fisherman digi image with SU's And Many More set which I used as a background to give the image more of a focal point. I do use rubber stamps on occassions *LOL* This time it was because it started off in my SU card class but I chose to make something entirely different with the supplies than intended.

This is super cute!! I have been wanting to try digistamps but have been nervous. How do you think they do with coloring in? Does the ink from your printer bleed when using markers? I have Dustin's cute work.
