Whimsical Wednesday Guest Designer
Stephanie at Always Crafting has a weekly challenge called Whimsical Wednesday. Stephanie hosts with good friend and amazing crafter Jess over at My Scrap Diary. This week they asked me to participate in their new challenge - use a stamp and any coloring technique you would like. I am very honored that they would ask me to share my favorite coloring technique with you! I chose this cute Mo Manning stamp called Step Sisters. It reminds me of my two girls so I decided to use this for my coloring technique - Copic markers. I just started using Copics in May and love them so much. I am not Copic Certified however and it might be something I will eventually want to do. However, I'll go into a few tricks I use to color my images.
I used my nestable and cut out the image and place the girl on this little tag envelope I made using my Gypsy and Tags, Bags, Boxes and More - layering them on some cute paper from American Crafts. I cut out letters from the word sister from the cartridge Nursery Rhymes and layered those on the tag part of the card. I then threaded a cute crinkle ribbon through both and tied them together.
Always Crafting and join in on the fun! Use any technique for coloring that you would like - just remember to use a stamp and enter!!!
