Hi! Today I have a video showing how to add shading and highlights to a stamped image with colored pencils and gamsol. It is very easy to do!

A very easy way to add the look of dimension to a solid stamped image is with added coloring on top. I have showed this in the past with Copic Markers (click HERE for a video), but today I wanted to show how to use colored pencils and gamsol. I personally think the combination of colored pencils and gamsol makes for the easiest coloring there is. This video doesn’t really showcase that much since it is subtle coloring we are doing, but it does give you an idea of how fun it is! (Click HERE for another video with basic coloring.)
Hi there! Today’s video shares generation stamping… which I used to create a set of notecards. I also show how to create a notecard gift box…

I honestly don’t think I have ever had cards come together as quickly as these did. Wow. Yay for generation stamping! Studio Calico Color Theory Inks happen to work *really* well for generation stamping. (I haven’t had nearly this much success with any other ink for this technique. And good news! I have a discount code for the SC inks below.) Stamp once and get a dark image. Stamp again – without cleaning – and get a medium-shade image. Stamp a third time and get a light image. Bam! Only one ink needed… but it looks like three.
I have SEVERAL ways for you to win today! Just leave a comment here and at every blog along the hop. I will be giving away the Clearly Besotted Holiday Sentiment stamp set I used above.
