Colouring a stamp CTC#411

Hello and Welcome to our Sunday Night Blog Hop CASEING the CATTY.

To CASE is to Copy And Share Everything or to Copy And Selectively Edit and we love to CASE from our amazing Stampin' Up! catalogues.  

This week, we are CASEING a colouring project.  

I actually love all sorts of water colouring and blending with the Stampin' Blends and using the watercolour pencils too - but I thought I'd try this fun colouring technique adding lots of different colours to a large background stamp.  I was keen to try out the Hand-Drawn Dots stamp - which is right out of my usual style.  I've cased a very similar card on page 29 of the mini catalogue.  

In my opinion, the catalogue card is much nicer than mine - I can see why this is not my usual style - I'm not really very good at it.  

I used the stamparatus to ink up the stamp using Petal Pink, Pale Papaya and Cajun Craze.  Then I used a blending brush and crumb cake to very lightly colour the background.  It ended up looking all fairly similar in colour!!  The embellishments were created using the Petal Park and Bough punches with glossy dots in the centre.  

Inside the card features the same colouring treatments. 
Even though I don't really like my card, I hope you're inspired to try this idea too!!

  1. Great technique Julia, I am glad you chose this one for the challenge. I'm going to have to give it a go myself.

  2. Julia a lovely card, not a colouring technique I have completed so I am glad you highlighted it as it makes those flowers pop.
