It's coloring techniques week over at SP & Company stamps and today I'm going to show you one of my fave coloring techniques. It's so simple - just add the color directly to the stamp!
I used a sentiment from the Sympathy & Care set and simply colored it in with stamp markers.
Once the entire stamp is colored you'll need to huff the stamp (just breathe on it as if cleaning a DVD or your sunglasses) to re-wet it since most of the ink has probably dried by the time you're done and then stamp it.
For my card front I used paper from the EP Paradise Beach 6x6 pad. On top of that I added a smaller black cardstock panel, then 3 hand drawn and cut grey clouds, rhinestone rain, and yellow twine. Over the twine I added my sentiment banner with foam. And finally I added two more rhinestones to the banner.
Notice the silver lining on the clouds? I thought they was a nice touch with the sentiment. :)
I'm entering this into the Young Crafters Unite Challenge #11 which is to use many layers.
Thanks for stopping by today!!
