Does size matter?

You bet it does, if you want to improve your Copic coloring!

Most stamps are sized for card coloring which doesn’t really make for a lot of room to add the kind of texture, depth, and dimension we want with Copic Markers and colored pencils.

At teeny tiny size, there’s no room for realism!

Today, let’s learn to resize your digi stamps- you can make them large enough for billboards or squinch ‘em down for dollhouse cards!

Kathy is our technology fairy godmother here at Vanilla Arts Company. Not only does she love messing around with digital devices but she’s also pretty darned awesome at showing people how to repeat the magic on their own laptops!
