Usually when I color with the Stampin' Blends, I use Whisper White or Very Vanilla cardstock, but today, I'm coloring on Sahara Sand cardstock which gives it a more rustic feel. The wonderful thing about the Stampin' Blends is that the color shows up even on the slightly carker cardstock. When you first color the image, it looks very brown, but as the alcohol evaporates, the color begins to pop. It's so much fun to watch!
Today, I have four adorable cards to show you using the Birds of a Feather stamp set. This set is in the 2019 Holiday Catalog by Stampin' Up! and is a 4-season set as it has four different birds - a duck, a chick, a turkey, and a hen - for four different holidays - Halloween, Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Valentine's Day. I used my Stampin' Blends on the cards for some quick and easy coloring and the Brights 6" x 6" Designer Series Paper. So easy and so fun!
Coloring these images with the Stampin' Blends is so easy! The Blends are available in a light and a dark version of each color. I simply colored the image with the light version, then went around the outside and where there should be shadows with the dark version. Then I switched back to the light version again to smooth out the lines.
It's hard to see in the photo, but I used the light Crumb Cake Stampin' Blend around the outside edges of the image. This gives it a slight shadow all around and helps it pop out from the page.
