Hi readers! How are you? It’s always a pleasure to have Teri Anderson on our blog not only because she makes pretty things, but she has new clever techniques to try! For the latest, read on!
Hi everyone! Always thrilled to stop by!
I am the first to admit: I’m somewhat challenged in the coloring department. Markers and me? We just don’t have a great relationship
What I love about this stamp set is that it’s pretty friendly to the a “not such a great colorer” girl like myself. Of course, you can get amazing results with the Ranunculus with markers, but you can do a lot with it with minimal coloring skills to.
Check this out. I didn’t even use markers here!
I used the back of the flower stamp to stamp the shadows on this card here. If you’ve never stamped with the backside of a clear stamp, I challenge to you to do it. It’s so fun!
I set the stamp onto my block with the sticky side up. I inked it up and stamped onto cardstock. Between colors, I did a good scrubbing of the stamp. After I completed the shadows, I cleaned the stamp again. I set it right side up on my block and stamped the flowers with black ink. Easy peasy!
I just love the end result of this one!
Nobody fall over, but I did use markers on this card. I didn’t want to go too far out of my comfort zone so I stuck with a couple nice neutral gray tones.
I stamped the flower in black and then colored it in with gray markers. Rather than using markers to add additional color to the card, I did so with some enamel dots and patterned paper from the Summer Vibes collection from Simple Stories. I think those little touches added just the right amount of color!
Thanks for having me, friends! Hope to see you again soon!
