WCMD 2018 | Coordinating Die Coloring Challenge with Kelly

Hi Folks! Kelly here with a challenge for you ... Coordinating Die Coloring

How does this work? Pick one of your favorite stamps that has a corresponding die, die cut a piece from copy paper (making a stencil), place the negative stencil portion of the die cut over your stamped image, and sponge ink through the stencil.

Why should you do this? It's about the fastest way to color an image that I can think of! This makes it perfect when you're stamping a lot of images and just don't have the time or desire to make mini-coloring masterpieces. This does, however, leave you with the option to go back in and add some details with a marker if you'd like, like I did with the focal point green elephant.

 
I think this technique works particularly well with baby cards when you want to have soft, simple shapes. The adorable elephant featured on this card is from one of my favorite Evelin T Designs sets, Happy Dance. The die cut is from In a Word: Baby, and the sentiment is from Wishing You with Evelin Designs.

I sure hope you'll give this challenge a try ... I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Thanks for stopping by!
-Kelly
