Coloring Lined Stamps in Different Ways

Hello! Leah from Paper Blossoms here to share a quick card with you and a tip for coloring your lined stamps in a new way. I know some of us can feel intimidated to color a line image but you don't always have to use markers or watercolors. For my card I used a stamp  to "color" my image. It was quick and easy and gives a very different look.

I used a paint brush stroke image to color my flowers. I first stamped the paint brush strokes after measuring about how much space I needed to fill and did graduated colors that would make sense in coloring a floral image. Once that was done I stamped my flower image on top in black ink and added my sentiment. What do you think? It was a fun way to color this detailed image and give it a new look. Thanks so much for joining me today. I hope you have a great day!

The card is beautiful. That's a great idea for coloring. I'll definitely try that. Do you think it would work with Copics or Shin Han markers?

Lovely effect on this card. So clever to stamp the brush mark image two different ways too. TFS
