Freshly Brewed Projects Blog Hop with the Latte Girls

I do love to colour and when I saw the Wildly Happy Stamp Set I thought it would be perfect to teach different ways to colour these sweet images in a class.

Ways to Colour Class

Last Saturday I held my ways to colour class and these were the cards we made. The ladies loved to learn different ways to colour and with the different colouring mediums we have.

As I said before I do love to colour and during my class we coloured the images in different ways – with watercolour pencils, water colouring with the Classic inks, colouring with Stampin Blends and the Colour Pull method using the Blending Pens.

Water Colouring with Ink pads

This is such a relaxing and fun way to colour images and you get such lovely results ..

This foxy pair are so much fun to colour. Surprisingly enough I’ve only used two colours on the foxes. To get a good result with water colouring you will need to use Watercolor Paper and a new Fluid Paper is wonderful to work with. The images were stamped in Jet Black Stazon ink and the colours I used to colour with were Pumpkin Pie and Cajun Craze.

Watercolouring with Watercolor Pencils

I’ve done something a little different with this image. Instead of colouring the image I’ve coloured the surrounding area and it makes the image pop.

This technique gives such a lovely result and it actually gives the images dimension and a 3D type look. I coloured around the outside of the image with my Bermuda Bay and Granny Apple Green Watercolour Pencils. Then using an Aqua Painter I blended the colours out. The image is stamped in Jet Black Stazon on our new Fluid Watercolour Paper.

Colouring with Stampin’ Blends

I do love to colour with my Stampin Blends and they were perfect for colouring these sweet Panda’s

It was quick and easy to colour the Panda’s. I stamped the Panda’s onto Whisper White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then coloured with the Stampin’ Blends. I love that we have a light and dark basic black in the blends. The lighter area on the arms was done with the Smoky Slate Stampin Blends.

I also shaded an area under the Panda’s in Soft Sea Foam then using the colour lifter around the edge faded it out so it looks like they are sitting on some grass. I’ve used the same Basic Black and Soft Sea Foam colours for my card layers so it all blends together.

Colour Pull with Blending Pen

This is my favourite of the set! It’s a fun simple technique and all you need is our classic stampin pads and a Blender Pen

I love these sweet elephants! So sweet and loving together. I stamped my elephants onto Shimmery White Cardstock with the Grey Granite Ink pad. Then with the Blender Pen you ‘pull’ the colour from the lines of the image. This technique gives a lovely soft muted look. For more shading simply pick up some ink with the Blender Pen from the lid of the ink pad.

I hope you’ve found today’s cards useful and use some of the different ways I’ve coloured these sweet animals in your own card making and crafting.
