Markers? Watercolour pencils? Prismacolors? What's your colouring weapon of choice? I'm a moody type so I don't really have a favourite, I just go with whatever grabs me on the day.
Today is the first day of the CHF Summer Stamp Star contest and the gallery is open for your entries to the colouring challenge - wheeee, we're off!
I decided to show you a watercoloured card in honour of the first challenge. This is July's Stamp of the Month and it's called Harbor Scene.
I used Distress inks as watercolours for this one and kept it absolutely simple so the focus is squarely on the lovely image.
To make a shaped card like this, cut a card base by putting the fold just inside the cutting line at the top of your die (you might need to finish off the cutting job with scissors if the Nestie doesn't go all the way through both layers). Then cut a complete card front and stick it over the top so you get a complete shape rather than one with a missing bit at the top.
