So, this post is supposed to be highlighting my favorite thing (since this is for the Friday Favorites over at the Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration design team blog) but man if I don’t have a heck of a time picking a favorite! It’s kind of like being asked to pick a favorite child. But there are a few things I’m loving right now in this card and so I thought that I’d just expend into my favorite things – plural – Partridge & Pears stamp set, Good Greetings stamp set, and of course, blendabilities!
This is one of the cards we made in Stamp Club this month and so we kept it simple for the coloring so that everyone could actually get all of their projects done before it was too late! I’m sure I’ll do another with the tree completely colored, but for now, I’ll let the bird get all the attention.
Tips for this card:
- Just because a line art image has lots of space to color, don’t feel like you have to do it all! Pick a few elements and let them shine by only coloring them.
- Extend your color palatte by using the Skin Tone Assortment of Blendabilities to color other things like this partridge’s wing and face.
- Use the Good Greetings hostess set to add a sweet sentiment to your holiday cards.
NOTE – this stamp set is only available until Oct 31st to hostesses! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to talk about earning yours!
- Tuck a piece of the Silver Baker’s twine just under the edge of the tree image for a little hint of glitz on your card for some subtle sparkle.
This stamp set just LOVES to be colored with the Blendabilities markers and it is so fun to do.
Seattle/Bellevue Folks – if you aren’t already signed up, you can come learn more about coloring with Blendabilities with my Technique Class on Tuesday 10/28! RSVP today!
