Day 6 Stretch Your Stamps: Outline Stamps Colouring
Just a quick post to show my take on the tag demo'd by Laura Bassen. She was showing how you can use tags to crop an outline image and use colour boldy to highlight a portion of the image. I chose the water lily image from the Clearly Besotted set "With Love". Orignally I was going to make the focal image a tag, but then I decided I liked it as a panel instead. I stamped the flower in Memento Jet Black ink and coloured with my Copics. I used Y17, YR09, and RV09 for the petals and YG 05 and 07 for the lily pad. When I am layering colour with copics, sometimes I find that the outline of my stamp disappears or dulls a bit. In order to "crisp up" the outline, I simply trace it with a black marker. The sentiment is from Avery Elle's "Oh Happy Day". I embossed the card base with an SU! woodgrain EF and added a few gems.
Thanks for stopping by - I love to hear your feedback!
