I’m working on fall cards so it’s the perfect time to share 3 techniques for coloring stamped images. I used pretty pumpkins this time!
I knew when I saw the NEW ‘Pretty Pumpkins’ stamp set (mini catalog) that I wanted to try coloring stamped images in different ways. had so much fun playing with these coloring techniques that I have not even focused on the other images in the set yet.
I began these handmade cards by adding different colors on Shimmery White Cardstock. I used ink refills, water brushes, and my Stampin’ Spritzer.
Once I stamped my image in Memento Black ink I pulled out my Versamark Ink and Clear Embossing Powder and heat set. This made the stamped image in black ‘pop’ with a darker shade of black. It gave me a great way to color the stamped image.
Coloring stamped images
There are so many different ways for coloring stamped images. I’m sharing 3 ideas with you today that are really cool and give your handmade cards a unique and beautiful look. You can learn how to make cards that use the same stamp set but look very different. Neat trick, right?!
Have you tried coloring stamped images before? What is your favorite method?
Notice how using the Versamark and Clear Emboss Powder on these stamped images gave me darker colors that pop a little more!
Coloring Stamped Images: Baby Wipe Technique
I really love this technique for coloring stamped images. You use baby wipes and ink refills to make your own ‘ink pad’ combining the colors you wish to stamp in!
These old tried & true coloring techniques have me feeling a little nostalgic. Which reminds me, on August 27,2021 I will celebrate my 24th Stampaversary. I have something very special planned for y’all!
Once you create your “ink pad” just keep on stamping! Some of the baby wipes these days are a little thinner than years ago so just add enough baby wipes to form your ink pad and then ‘color’ your stamped images by stamping away!
Shimmery White Cardstock + Watercoloring + Embossing Powder
My last card today uses the water colored Shimmery White cardstock but I added Copper Emboss Powder on top! And…notice how I made a frame for my Pretty Pumpkin? I cut my copper foil with my paper trimmer to create the frame.
I also dry embossed a white cardstock layer using the Parisian Flourish folder to finish off the look of this card.
