Two 4 Tuesday: Two Different Coloring Techniques

Two for Tuesday features 2 projects that are similar in either color, theme, layout or embellishment but... with a different twist!

Hi everyone,

For today's post, I decided to play with the same stamp, same color scheme but 2 different coloring techniques.

The flower comes from Stampin' Up!'s Friends Never Fade stamp set and the sentiments are from Pensées en fleurs (Upsy Daisy). The color scheme used here is Poppy Parade, So Saffron and Baja Breeze and I picked it up from the Color Coach (love that thing!).

On this card, the image is colored in with markers, stamped on Very Vanilla cardstock then shadowed with a Blender Pen and Baja Breeze, Poppy Parade, So Saffron and Chocolate Chip Classic Inks.

 Whereas this one was stamped on watercolor paper after I spritzed the stamp with water. Then I shadowed it with inks and the Aqua Painter.

Here's a close-up of each:

So this is a good example of how you can still fiddle around with a full image (as opposed to line art).  It gives the images depth and makes them come alive.

Have nice stampin' day !!
