Stamp sets like the Light Me Home that have a lot of coloring sometimes seem a little overwhelming. Many people choose not to purchase these type of stamps because it is a lot of coloring. Part 1 of this technique show you an easy way to color intricate images and how to create two cards with this technique. Part II will be creating two cards using these image with a fancy fold card.
In this post I will include a video showing you my “go to” way to color these intricate images. The Many Marvelous Markers are perfect for this technique and the Stamparatus makes the whole technique a breeze.
Once you see this coloring technique Light Me Home and other stamps like this may be on your wishlist.
Here are the three “prints” I got from this technique. I created the first photo by coloring with the markers directly onto the stamp. I used the Stamparatus and colored a small portion at a time, changing colors and creating this fun image.
The next two images were left over ink on the stamp. I took the Stamparatus panel off and spritz the stamp with some water before I stamped it. These were images #2 and #3.
The video (seen on my blog) shows the process of creating these images. When I color an imagine in I like to use alcohol inks, when I create an outline image like this one, I prefer to use the Stampin’ Markers.
These were cards I previously made with the 2nd set of images. On Tuesday I will do another Live video and I will share with you a fun fancy fold card that I created to add my first image with this technique. I will also show you a fun fall card with the same fancy fold.
Give this technique a try. There are a lot of gorgeous stamp sets out there that this technique could work with. I hope you will try it. Don’t forget to catch the Live on Tuesday to see a fancy fold card with this image and another fantastic fall card.
Some supplies listed will be shown on Tuesday’s video in Part II.
