Are You Passionate About Coloring?

We are having a busy week on the Stampendous team! In addition to our hop with Nathalie Kalbach's new designs for Stampendous, we are sharing some of our favorite colored House Mouse Designs® critters as well. If you've never checked out the Passionate Paper Creations and Friends page on Facebook, I highly recommend that you do so immediately! So much inspiration for coloring your favorite images with your favorite mediums. Here's one of my favorites...

This image called "Bouncing Bunnies" always reminds me of the children's song about monkeys jumping on the bed. They look like they are having a wonderful time, and you know that MOM will not be happy when she catches them in the act, but meanwhile...

I've colored this image with Copic Sketch Markers, and I'd love to share the colors that I've used, but that would require more organization than I seem to handle lately.

For the background of this card, I've used the Dreamweaver I Beam stencil f…

Woodware Sketch 52: Pretty Pretty, Pretty Much!

Image
Above is our sketch challenge 52 for the month of April on the Woodware Witterings Blog. Pretty simple. My version has been tipped on end to create a vertical card instead, but the end result is pretty pretty, don't you think?


Featuring a new image from Stampendous, the "Cling Live Each Day" is an all-in-one image and sentiment, and a very pretty one at that. Especially when water-colored with Sakura Fluorescent Gel Pens and a wet paintbrush. I learned this technique from Woodware's own Francoise Read, which is no surprise as that girl LOVES color!


I've die cut the oval shape, and matted it with a larger oval. This has been popped up with foam tape over an aqua cardstock, edged with more of the teal. Finally, the layers have been adhered over a coral card.


As the sentiment was already built into the image, I added a strip of this yummy floral trim that Woodware carries. See? Pretty pretty...pretty much! Be sure to visit the Woodware blog all this week for more p…
