Live, Love Laugh!

I tend to shy away from stamps that I need to color in because that takes extra time.  But recently I’ve been adding these to my collection and just using basic techniques to color.  Some of the techniques I’ve used to keep my coloring quick and easy include:

Watercolor Pencils  – Ink Stamp Pads – Watercolors – Colored Pencils – Water Brushes

This stamp set looks great even without coloring!

For this picture, I used Momento Black Ink and then used water colors and a water brush to color in just some of the flowers & leaves. To keep everything balanced, I focused on one color or type of flower across all the letters.

Here’s some great artwork from our home office –
