Stamptastic Friends are sharing coloring techniques today. Stampin’ Up! has so many coloring options it is hard to pick just one!

We have Inks, Blends, Watercolor Pencils, Water Coloring Brushes, Blending Pens, Sponge Daubers, & Blending Brushes. There may be more that I have forgotten!

I chose to share how you can use Sponge Daubers to ink up your stamps. The Daubers give your images dimension with very little effort. I always love easy techniques.

For these two cards I started by using a light color of ink. Ink your stamp well, then take a darker ink and brush around the edges of your image using the Sponge Dauber. Go lightly and use short strokes. Now you are ready to stamp. Every time you try this technique your image will change. That is what makes it so interesting.

On this card I used Mango Melody and Flirty Flamingo.

Soft Seedlings

The second card uses Fresh Freesia and Gorgeous Grape.

You can view how I created these cards on my YouTube Channel.
