This has had me thinking. How can I get around coloring a line art stamp? I have come of tips/tricks up my sleeve. While I love what others do with different coloring mediums, it's not for me and I need to find ways to make awesome cards using line stamp without coloring. If you are a non-colorer too, you'll want to stop by every so often because I'll be adding quite a few posts over the next month as I explore different techniques that work for me!
My first tip may not sound like a very good tip, but bare with me :) Tip #1: Don't do anything. What? Here's what I mean.
A huge flower like this Mondo Poinsettia from Ellen Hutson would usually be giving me heart palpitations by now, but no worries, I'm not going to do any coloring whatsoever. Simply stamp or heat emboss your image on white or colored card stock and use it on your card. How's that for an easy way out? No one said that you have to be a coloring expert! I'm taking those words to heart. I do not enjoy coloring, I'm not going to force myself to become an expert. That is ok and I'm cool with that.
Here are a few more cards I've made using my "Don't Do Anything" technique.
I think these images are just adorable simply stamped.
I'll be back in a few days with another tip. Stay tuned!
