Today I am here to share with you some tips on personalizing your MayzyArt stamps. This post stemmed from a request that I got on the recent Firecracker stamp.
Jo Ann asked: Oh, this is so cute but is it possible to get her without the belly showing...Please...Same as the California Roll girl...Just a request.
The first thing that I want to explain is that all MayzyArt Stamps are originally drawn and inked by hand, not digitally, so modifications are tricky. For the most part, what you see is what you'll get. HOWEVER! when you purchase a MayzyArt stamp, you are more than welcome to make modifications on your own. (Please be sure to credit MayzyArt for the original stamp. A modified stamp is not a unique piece of art!)
Want some examples?
Because of flaring or folding on belly-shirts, it's often difficult to change the shirts so that they go all the way down. However, if you erase her belly button (easily done in a program such as Paint), you can color her to look like she's wearing an undershirt!
Original Firecracker and my modified version with 'undershirt'. With this one, because her shirt is so tight, you could even just erase the shirt line and color it in down to the belt. (Please note that this is a super quick flood fill coloring job. I know y'all could totally put it to shame!!)
How about another example? Let's say you've got a boy who plays football and you want to make a card for him. Excellent, I have the stamp for you! But let's say your boy is #37. How neat would it be to have his actual jersey number on the stamp??
All I did for this one was erase the '20' on his shoulder and then added a text block over the top with the '37'. You could also just leave it blank and write in a jersey number or even a team name with pen after the stamp has been printed!
MayzyArt Stamps are all about being creative, so please feel free to make them your own. Have an example of an easy modification that you'd like to share? Post a link in the comment section!
