Our team gathered tonight for a techniques class. This month we did colouring and made a heap of examples using different colouring mediums such as Classic Stampin' Ink pads, Stamp 'n Write Markers, Watercolour Crayons, Watercolour Pencils and Pastels.
The girls were exhausted by the time I let them put down their blender pens and aqua painters but it was worth the effort - they made three beautiful cards and twelve beutiful sample pieces to put in their technique manuals for easy reference. We have been collating a folder of different methods of using stamps, inks, cards and papers - it's amazing how many different ways there are to do the most creative things.
If you have time one day try this nifty technique: colour in your rubber stamp die with watercolour crayons, spritz it with a fine mist of water, then stamp the image on cardstock - it looks like a marbled version of the image in the colour pallet of your choice. Stamps clean up quickly using a Stampin' Scrub.
Busy weekend ahead, two classes and a demo and I really have to attack my swaps for convention soon.
