Coloring

We had a bonus day at Online Card Classes' Holiday Card Workshop 2014 last Saturday, and the topic was coloring.  I had a new stamp from WPlus9 which I thought was perfect for coloring, and just looking at the stamp makes me smile. The set is called Festive Greetings... As a child I would get so excited for the holidays as soon as my parents pulled out the decorations.  I loved those (now-a-days) fat light bulbs in blue, green, red and an orange-y yellow. 

I felt giddy as I stamped them out and colored them with colored pencils...just generic ones I bought at Michaels and a blending pen made for wax based pencils.  Some were additionally gilded with clear wink of stella and glossy accents.  Others only were embellished with glossy accents alone - depending on my perception of them being lit or unlit.

And I have to say I love the "sketchy" font in this set.  The first card I added a piece of paper from Lawn Fawn's Snow Day paper pad, but the rest are pretty much just this stamp set. I had fun with these cards...and leaving white space is so not my comfort zone.



Thanks for stopping by!
