Hey stamping friends 🙂 Oh how I needed a little stamping therapy tonight! I read an article online recently that coloring is right up there with yoga where relaxation is concerned. Yup, that’s about right for me!
I’ve been trying to join in on Kathy’s 30 Day Coloring Challenge as much as I can. We went away camping this past weekend and had a blast, but let me tell you, there were times when I wished I had packed a few Copics!
I got THE coolest stamps the other day from Designs by Ryn…how about the water droplets on this card? Okay, do you mind if I add water droplets to everything from now on?!? I also checked out her tutorial on YouTube for making them more realistic looking. Simple and effective!
Hey stamping friends 🙂 It’s time for a new challenge at The Card Concept and this week we have a photo to inspire you:
My style is clean and layered, and I was inspired to use a white pumpkin on my image with a bit of a shabby background. I used a stamp I’ve had for years, from the now closed Flourishes, but I felt like it fit this challenge and time of year pretty well, it’s called Autumn Blessings. The DSP is from a paper pad called Reunion from MME. Of course my image is colored with Copics.
Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have time to get inky this week, we’d love to see what you create!
Hey stamping friends 🙂 Wow this weekend has zipped by. I’ve been a busy beaver getting my new site up & running. I’ve had some scares along the way…imagine fiddling around with things you don’t know how to operate and having all 8 years of blog post photos disappear…yup, that happened. But that was last night’s crisis lol. Today I got to stamp…and color, right after I re-directed all 260 of my pins on Pinterest to my new links…hey it only took about 4 hours!!
Anyway, to the fun part having a blog, getting to share a card I made! I am joining in on Kathy’s 30 Day Coloring Challenge again today. I colored some yesterday too, but that was for a design team commitment so I can’t share just yet 🙂 I am also playing along with this week’s Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge:For my card I used the Blended Bloom stamp from Stampin’ Up!, along with some random DSP I found in my stash. Note to self, pick out DSP first, then color to match! Coloring first then finding DSP to match is NOT that easy! I colored my flower in Copics: RV000, RV14, RV81, RV83, RV85. The sentiment is from another Stampin’ Up! set called Curly Cute.
Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you get a chance to get inky soon!
Hey stamping friends 🙂 Oh my it’s the first of October already! Where has the time gone?! One good thing about October is it’s the beginning of Kathy’s 30 Day Coloring Challenge. I’ve had my eye on Kathy’s blog The Daily Marker for some time now, but have never joined in on her previous coloring challenges. Why?? Am I a little intimated by the talent and creativity that oozes out of every project she creates? Maybe…Seriously folks, today she turned a Starbucks coffee cup into the most adorable card, seriously.
But hey, you don’t get better if you don’t practice right? With Kathy’s latest coloring challenge I am looking at getting inky a LOT.
