DOstamperSTARS Sketch Pad Challenge: Stampin' Up! On The Grow #SSC052

Yes, again with my favorite, Stampin' Up!'s On the Grow stamp set.  Are you getting sick of it yet?  I hope not.  Today's card is a Sketch Pad DOstamperSTARS Thursday Challenge...provided by Jan Carlson.  She does a great job with our sketches...thanks Jan!

With a sketch like this one, plus a simple and fast coloring technique (which I share below)...this card went together pretty fast!  Check it out...



The Designer Series Paper is called Elegant Soiree (#117163) and is retiring!  I'll be sad to see it go.  It's a beautiful paper and will be missed.  Be sure to get it now before it's gone for good on June 30th.



So how did I color the flowers?

I know I didn't invent this technique.  But I don't know if there is a name for the "coloring technique" I used on the flowers. Maybe we can call it "Blended Lines".  Hmm...that sounds good, what do you think?  See below for my how-to tips...


1.PushPin-Note-Reminder-35 Dawn's Stamping Tips - Blended Lines

1.  Stamp a line image with Perfect Plum ink

2.  Use a blender pen and immediately blend the lines of the flower images.  Meaning, pull the ink from the stamped flower lines inwards to "fill" the flower with color.  Act quickly before the ink dries.

3.  Step it up, by adding Stampin' Up! Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to the flowers with a 2-Way Glue Pen
