One of the reasons I love stamping is because I love to color! I don't use crazy complicated stamping techniques on my cards, instead I settle for good old coloring in methods with markers or pencils! On today's card I used both mediums to achieve the rich gorgeous jewel tone colors and hand sketched textured pencil lines.
I used only ONE stamp set from JustRite Papercraft to complete this card. Love the idea of whipping these cards out faster than I can say Ho-Ho-Ho!
To be honest with you all the coloring does take a little time. I suggest stamping several images at once and then do all the coloring of the leaves, moving onto the berries, bells and backgrounds. I grab a cup of coffee, select the few colors that I will need and while the kids are at swim practice, or while watching a favorite show I sit and color. Before I know it I have a few cards ready to assemble and go!
I used a combination of Spectrum Noir Markers and Pencils for this image

Have a wonderful Sunday! I want to organize my craft room - I just can't find things anymore so obviously my filing system (or lack thereof) needs a bit of an overhaul!
