Rose Stencil Circle digi-freebie


Happy Valentine's Day!  I had a few ask about the floral design behind the Ornate Cut-Out Butterfly.  Actually, this was a digital experiment I devised in 2006 ( or so it says on my files LOL)  -  "Digital Peg Stamping" in Paint Shop Pro.    I made some small brushes/images, some taken from pieces of public domain rose stencil designs... which I then altered or repainted and also some brushes that I hand drew.  The process is alot like real stamping with those little peg stamps.  I can "stamp" with a colour, rotate the brush, change the opacity before I "stamp" - so some flowers are lighter and transparent... like you would with real stamping where you make a repeat impression without re-inking.  It was alot of fun.  I found the print in my stash and thought it would look neat with the butterfly.

I found my old file and took it into Painter and played with the colours to make this DIGI-FREEBIE :)  This package has 8 coloured versions.

Here is the original Rose coloured design ( It is also included in the download ):


If you are interested in the technique and have Paint Shop Pro or are handy with similar graphics editors, please leave a comment.  If there is enough interest, I might whip up a tutorial and make the brush set available for all you graphics geeks ;)

I hope you all had a wonderful lovey dovey day!  I got a heart box of Laura Secord chocolates... yum!  ..and a scare at the vets :O.. Rosey pup went in to get her yearly vaccinations and had a severe anaphylactic allergic reaction  right there on the vet table... thank goodness there and not at home... she had to get an IV and be put under observation.  It was scary!  I didn't know how she was for about an hour and a half!  But she is her sweet and happy puppy self now whew!  Oh how I wuv the little diddums!  They can sure tug at your heart strings.

A "fab" freebie!. It would be super if you wrote a tutorial, it would keep me out of the way of the dusting( I am running out of excuses for not doing any).
Pleased to learn that Rosey is OK.

Thank you for this lovely freebie...how clever and effective. I actually popped by to say thank you for a freebie I had sometime ago from you, I have just used it again on a blog card (also for challenges) so hope that's OK. I have created a link to your site. Please let me know if this is a problem.

Hi - I was just directed to your site for some nice digital stamps and saw your "peg stamp" digital. I love this idea! I don't use PaintShop Pro as I work on a Mac but I think it's very similar to Photoshop Elements which is my graphic tool of choice. Would absolutely love to see a tutorial on this!

Linda/AR said...

Thank you for the lovely freebie. I would be very interested in a tutorial for the technique you used in PaintShop Pro. Hope Rosie is still doing well. What a scare!

Charlene said...

Thank you for this gorgeous freebie!

Bill Burton said...

I would LOVE to have ANY digital peg stamping files you do. Your talent inspires my mojo. Keep up the good work. I have used PSP since version 2, and LOVE IT!

Thank you so much for sharing your talents. I love this technique and although I don't have the Photoshop program I am sure I could follow a tutorial and apply it to the graphics program I do have. You are very kind.
