Using My Digital Studio for Stamping 411 sketch...

It's a cold, rainy day here and my kids are playing Wii games. So to spend time in the same room with them (because they like to point out to me what's happening as they play), I grabbed my laptop computer and decided to do a sketch challenge from http://stamping411.blogspot.com with My Digital Studio.


The colors are Early Espresso and Peach Parfait, with Garden Green. The stamps I used are from Razzle Dazzle and Always. I haven't done much with MDS as far as building cards go, but I have done a few scrapbooks I think turned out awesome!


The one problem I had with this card is that I was trying to use a flourish stamp from Always as a background in Early Espresso on top of the Peach Parfait layer and it was showing through the top few layers. Anybody know how to do it? I kept trying to move the flourish behind, but it wouldn't go! I know the others layers were solid, and not opaque... so I'm not quite sure what I was doing wrong. I'm open to suggestions here!


It's a good day to stay indoors. I hope you get some stamping done! In addition to this sketch challenge, there's a color challenge at http://fridaymashup.blogspot.com - so go for a 2-in-1 card and enter both! And have a great weekend.

on your sketch select the flourish you want behind the other layers and right click and do send backwards.. you might need to do it separate times, until it's behind each layer.. I hope that helps.

This looks pretty as is, I'm not into the mds as I really don't scrapbook, so sorry can't help you there. Anyway thanks for the comment on my card. Oh I hope you had fun at the regionals, as I got my set at regionals as well in Sept. in Hamilton, ON.

I think it's perfect the way it is, and I'm not just saying that because I have no clue how to do what you're asking lol!! Great job with the sketch :)

I agree with Holly. Just right click and "send backward" a few times to get it where you want it.

It's a great MDS card!
