Good Afternoon! Yesterday I shared my Classic Garage Card using the Colouring with Stamps Technique and today I have a couple more cards for you using that technique.
Colouring with Stamps
This is such a fun and easy technique to do. It gives wonderful inky results and perfect for those who dont like to colour in.
My first card today is using the Falling Flowers Stamp Set coloured with Artisan Textures Stamp Set.
I love how this technique gives the mottled look on my flowers. It’s a bit like those variegated petals you see. The colour inks I used were Memento Tuxedo Black for the Flower outline and Mango Melody and Flirty Flamingo for the ‘colouring’.
The sentiment comes from the Part of my Story Saleabration Stamp Set. I also love offsetting those rectangle stitched framelits – you will no doubt see that a bit on my cards!
My second card uses the gorgeous Colourful Season Stamp Set and coloured with Artisan Textures.
I do love a good ‘leafy’ card with Autumn colours. My three leaves are stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and ‘coloured’ with the Artisan Textures Stamp Set using Granny Apple Green, Grapefruit Grove and Cajun Craze. The same texture stamp was used to stamp on my background with Crumb Cake for a little depth and a ‘rustle’ type look.
My sentiment is stamped in Cajun Craze and another from the Part of my Story Saleabration Stamp Set.
Colouring with Stamps Technique …
This is such a fun and easy technique. It works best with ‘line stamps’.
- Stamp your line stamp in a dark ink – I used Memento Tuxedo Black
- select one or two texture stamps and two or three different coloured ink pads.
- Using your texture stamps stamp over your line image. Start lighter then add your darker colours.
- Cut out your image with dies, punches or snips
- assemble your card.
Tip ~ use your texture stamps to create a background on your top layer to give your card depth.
I do hope you enjoyed today’s technique and cards as much as my Tuesday Technique Club did making them.
Thanks for stopping by and see you latte ..
