Kathy’s Coloring Technique

December 6, 2011

Kathy Racoosin is here today, sharing a fun coloring technique!

Kathy’s coloring technique can be used to create a clean and simple card, or taken further for a more detailed, technique-driven card. After coloring her stamp with markers, Kathy stamped the wreath image and allowed it to dry. She then stamped the image again on top of the previous image, and embossed. This allowed Kathy to go back and color the background of the wreath with the markers again, without the colors blending together.

Kathy even provided a video tutorial on her technique, click HERE. Enjoy!
