Colouring on Kraft Card Photo Tutorial

Ah, it's been a busy morning for me, parcelling up craft goodies to send out and also Scentsy fragrance packages too - all go! So I wanted to do a spot of creating to chill out once my jobs for the day were done.

Do you know I sat down and wasn't sure what to do! Since I resigned from my Stampin' Up! demonstrator role, I just create for me as and when I want rather than to showcase new products etc. Sometimes I'm finding Jelly gets a little bit stuck! Then I remembered before the likes of Pinterest what I used to do when I got stuck.....join in a blog challenge. I turned to one of the ones I really used to enjoy taking part in Less is More and saw today's challenge is to create a one layer card featuring a beverage. Fabulous.

I have the perfect stamp, I got it free with a magazine and at last a reason to ink it up:


I've used Crumb cake card and rounded off the corners and stamped my image and sentiment too. I thought I'd show you how to create the look so if it's new to you, you can have a go too.

Stamp the image and then use a craft white ink pad and a blender pen to colour in the image and wait to dry (or cheat and use a heat tool if you're an impatient so and so like me).

Use any pens to colour the image, I've used a mix of markers and alcohol pens.


I wasn't quite happy with the finish so I used a chalk pen to add some polka dots to the tea cup - much happier!


Of course thanks to them inspiring me I'm popping in to the Less is More challenge too, why not join in?

I'm off to watch a Thomas the Tank Engine film now and get plenty of snuggles, Zac and Blake both have colds and coughs and aren't up to much today, the joys of a new school year.
