Stamping with Friends Blog Hop: Coloring

Thanks for stopping by the Craft Lounge!  I appreciate you stopping by my blog.  

 I am happy to be joining the Stamping With Friends Blog Hop for the first time and seeing all of the wonderful projects focused on Coloring!  WOW!  There are just so many options to consider when presented with this topic and appreciate the invitation from Linda Moore of Moore Fun Stamping for the invitation to participate in the hop.  If you are following along in the blog hop, then you just saw Karen's gorgeous project from the Beautifully Penned set.  

I choose a project that features double embossing which I then colored with ink and water painters.  I started out with a piece of Basic White cardstock.  It was first embossed with the Scripty Embossing Folder and then embossed for the second time with the Pretty Flowers embossing folder.  The card pictured below is my second attempt with this technique.  The ink color was applied directly from the Stampin' Up! ink pads using an water painter. I think this gorgeous card speaks for itself and is finished by sentiment using the double oval punch.

I also tried the same two embossing folders on the card pictured below.  This time, colored pencils were used to enhance the flowers.  I did not yet add the sentiment as that I was wanting for an occasion to send this card so I will finish it at that time.  The subtleness of the pencil coloring lends itself well, to a thinking of you card or possibly a sympathy card.  I'll know when the occasion arises.  I like to create ahead so I have cards at my disposal and ready to mail.

One of the fun things about this blog hop is that everyone is so talented and we literally span the globe.  The next featured blog is Vickie's from Vickie Lou's Designs in the UK.  Her project is also super cute featuring a cute mermaid.  Please hop on over to Vickie's blog and check out her project!

  1. I love how you started with the same base but by using the two different coloring techniques you wind up with two totally different looks. I can’t decide which I like better.

  2. Love this coloring technique - it's brings a whole new life to embossing folders. Beautiful!

  3. Wonderful cards. Love the bright colors with watercolor technique and the softness of the watercolor pencils.

  4. Love that you colored the embossed. Beautiful cards!
