Do you enjoy learning new stamping techniques? It's fun step outside the box and try new thing. The Penned & Painted stamp set by Stampin' Up! has some pretty outline stamps that look fabulous using the Color Wash Technique.
Color Wash Technique
The trick to coloring on a dark card stock is a technique called Color Washing. First, stamp and heat emboss your images. This gives you a nice outline. Next, paint on a layer of Whisper White Ink inside each outline. After the White Ink is dry, color your flowers with either an aqua painter or a clear Wink of Stella Brush. See the video below to see how to watercolor with the Wink of Stella Brush.
The flowers take on a translucent look using this technique. And painting with the Wink of Stella Brush gives the flower a shimmery finish as well. The flowers are gorgeous and they look even better in real life.

I used the Wink of Stella instead of an Aqua Painter to color my flowers. The subtle glimmer is gorgeous.
