To A Wild Rose – Coloring Techniques

To A Wild Rose is a fabulous new flower stamp set! And you all know how much I love flowers! This particular set involves two-step stamping but it also works great with a variety of different coloring techniques and tools.

To A Wild Rose - Clean and Simple

Two-Step Stamping

This particular technique involves adding color with, what I like to call, overlay stamps. It requires a stamp set that has an outline stamp of an image and a solid stamp of the same image. The “To A Wild Rose” stamp set has everything you need for two-step stamping. The solid image enables you to “fill in” the outline image when you stamp them one on top of the other. It’s a quick and simple way to add color to a stamped image.

Now the stamp set, To A Wild Rose, has two different “fill in” images that can be used to add color. Start by stamping the the outline of the flower using black ink. The yellow flower features the use of the solid image to add just one color. The orange flower features the use of solid image to add the background color and then a detailed overlay image to add some shaded areas.

Stampin’ Blends

Now one of my favorite coloring techniques involves the use of Stampin’ Blends. Look how beautiful this rose is when you color it in with the blends. These markers make it so easy to blend and shade!

The stampin’ blends add so much depth and dimension to these flowers. These cards feature the Daffodil Delight, Pumpkin Pie and Old Olive Stampin’ Blends. However, you can really use any color markers to create your flower.

The design of these cards are pretty simple too! Cut a 2 x 4-1/4 inch piece of patterned paper and adhere it across the center of the card. Cut out a stitched nested label from either old olive or mossy meadow cardstock and adhere it down the center of the card so it overlaps onto the patterned paper. Then simply embellish with the rose and some leaves.

I hope you enjoyed these simple card ideas and coloring techniques! Have fun with them! Have a creative day! ~ Lynn
