Printing Digis on Different Papers & A Giveaway

Many of us print our digis out on white cardstock and color them.  But today I thought we'd share a few examples with you of what it looks like to print them on something besides white.  Our designer Brenda worked on this project for me and here's what she came up with:
 Printed on Bazill dotted swiss Kraft cardstock

 Printed on a denim blue striped pattern paper.

Printed on a polka dot patterned paper

Brenda printed this one on both Kraft cardstock and white to achieve the coloring she wanted.

Here's a couple more projects from Dragonslair Designs
Corinna created this layout with a perfect matching digi!

Penny created this one using both "Fireplace Warmth" and "Bear in Scarf."  What a fabulous combination!

Leave us a comment telling us what you like to print your digis on and you will be eligible to win 4 free digis from Dragonslair Designs.  Deadline for entry is December 6th.

I like to print them on plain white paper. It's easier to color that way :)

I like to print on music sheet paper or book print paper and then add color.

I most often use white but love to paper piece with digis as well so I use coloured cardstock and scraps too.

I normally use white and color it, but when I'm feeling super crafty, I will print it out on different papers and paper piece it.

I have only tried white paper but I think kraft would be a great choice!

I love doing this. Haven't been using digi stamps for a long time but I love printing them on different colored cardstock. Makes my job so easy and fast when I have no time to color things. :) Great job!!!!

I use Neenah super smooth paper... suggested for digitals and copic colouring... this is my favourite so far.

I have only printed two digis, and I printed them both on white cardstock.

Mostly I print on plain white cardstock, but I have tried a couple other options with simple patterns. Love the possibilities, great examples. Thanks for the chance.

I use Gina K Pure Luxury Layering Weight Cardstock (either white or ivory) to print my digi images ~ I love this paper for coloring with copics! I would love to be able to print on my kraft and lighter colored SU cardstocks, but they end up jamming my printer so I can't. And every once in awhile I will print on patterned paper to paper piece my image.
