Simply MDS Challenge - Week 3

The week 3 challenge (week of December 17) featured two colouring tools available in Simply My Digital Studio 2.  For solid images the recolour tool is available to change the colour of portions of the stamped image.  Four outline images the Freeform tools allows you to colour in your image.

Snowman - I used the recolour tool to colour the nose, buttons and arms.  I used the freeform colouring tool to colour in the hatband.

Jolly Christmas - I used the recolour tool to colour the wreath and the freeform tool to colour in the berries on the wreath.

Simply MDS Challenge - Week 2

The techniques Kimberly and Heather featured in the week 2 challenge (week of December 10) was cropping embellishments and stamps.  It is so great to have this feature available.  Sometimes there is only part of a stamp that you really want to use - now the unwanted portion can be cropped out.  The same for embellishments - maybe you only want a short row of stitching.  You can crop the stitching to the length you want.

Simply MDS Challenges - Hosted by Heather Summers and Kimberly VanDiepen

A few weeks ago Heather Summers and Kimberly VanDiepen put their heads together and came up with a plan for weekly My Digital Studio Challenges.  Each week they post a challenge on their blogs (with a video) covering some of the new features in My Digital Studio.  They have also set up a Facebook so participants have a place to post and share their pages.

The week one challenge (week of December 3) featured using multiple photo boxes for one photo.  A very fun technique - check out the video on Heather's blog HERE.

For my page I used a family photo taken when we celebrated my mother-in-law's 90th birthday at the end of November.
