Growth Takes Time Inspiration - Easy Coloring Hack

Hello and welcome to my blog; today I have a fun colorful card (well actually two cards) to share with you and my super simple coloring hack as well.

Growth Takes Time Card #1 by Rick Adkins1

I wanted to use the Growth Takes Time Stamp Set from the March Online Exclusive product release from Stampin' Up!; and create a fun card but I didn't want to color it.

I had seen a card by Kristina Werner the other day; plus I have taken her & Jennifer McGuire's Stencil 2 Class recently. So, I've been looking for ways to use my stencils more. So, today was the day to make some circle stencils from some scrap cardstock and use the one that I had in my stash. I used four different size circle stencils for the coloring along with four ink colors (Daffodil Delight, Costal Cabana, Pumpkin Pie, and Flirty Flamingo) and my Blending Brushes.

As you will see in the video tutorial this is a super easy way to add color to your stamped and embossed images. I first stamped all my images on my cardstock panel in Versamark Ink and covered them all with clear embossing powder from the Basic Embossing Powders.

Next it was just a matter of placing the stencil and ink blending on the colors. Where each of the colors overlap you will get a secondary or tertiary colors as well. So, the most important thing to remember when using this coloring hack is to always pick colors that will blend together nicely and not make a natural brown (mud)!
