Playing with the colouring....

You know how much I love stamping? You know how much I love colouring? Well.... this card is the result of both of those things...

Now.... the image is one I fell in love with whilst doing my Docrafts demonstration at Derby Garden Centre the other week, where one of the girls who work there had done a stamped card using it... and she did an absolutely awesome job of colouring it!

I hunted high and low for the stamp as they had sold out at the store, and I found it eventually. So I just wanted to share my card with you.

This picture shows the papers that I chose to use for the colouring.. I always choose my papers first, then colour my image to match it in.. and these old Papermania papers were in my paper stash and I rediscovered them when tidying out my room the other day. They are just stunning. No wonder I found about three packs of them!!

The other thing that I like to do is to keep a track of what colours I've used for colouring.. so I stamp two images, and as I colour I make a colour chart. I note down the colour I used and what papers I used too, or even just staple a couple of pieces of paper to it, and keep it in a folder. It's a great way to keep track of your favourite cards.

Here are a few close ups for you.



I really enjoyed colouring this image... and I'm sure I'll be colouring it again soon!

Whatever you're upto today, I hope you enjoy it..

Happy Crafting!!
