Have a mentioned that I love coloring with my Stampin' Blends. The girl on this card depicts how I feel every time I pick up my new blends. Just look at those gorgeous colors. The Beautiful You stamp set is a great set to brush up on your coloring skills. Hint: Leave just a touch of white showing to look like light shining on your picture. Can you spot the touch of light on her dress?
Just seeing all those beautiful colors in a row makes my heart sing. Can you name the colors? From top to bottom, they are Pineapple Punch, Highland Heather, Mint Macaron, Pool Party, Flirty Flamingo, Granny Apple Green and Soft Suede. Hint: When coloring with Stampin' Blends use Momento Ink to prevent smearing.
Stampin' Blends Coloring Tips
To color her dress, I started with my Highland Heather light, then I worked in Highland Heather Dark along the lines and shadows.
Her hat started with Mint Macaron light and moved to Mint Macaron dark. Hint: You can go back and blend with the light after coloring with the dark, but take card not to over saturate or you will loose your blended look.
I bathed her in sunshine using my Pineapple Punch Stampin' Blend. The Pool of water is Pool Party.
Here she is talking a stroll in the rain. I'm really crushin' on her Granny Apple Green Umbrella. Her top is Pineapple Punch and her skirt is Flirty Flamingo. Hint: The Petal Pink Stampin' Blends make a pretty skin tone.
For a fun twist, I stamped the sentiment directly on my card base. I stamped Flirty Flamingo on Flirty Flamingo. I cut my doily in half then placed in position to avoid perfect symmetry.
Have a fabulous day,
