Coloring BLISS with a Special Guest

February 28, 2017

Don’t miss the new creation on our Simplicity Site today… click HERE to check it out!


And now scroll down for more coloring fun!



With open areas and fun details, many stamps from our newest collection, BLISS 2017, are perfect for coloring! This week our designers have created simple, one-layer stamped designs and then grabbed their favorite coloring mediums to bring them to life. If you are a coloring enthusiast, we think you will especially love these new designs, featured this week: 40-513 Burst of Blooms, 40-507 Awaken, 40-508 Gladsome, and 30-418 Stitched Flowers.


Today we feature the coloring of a very special guest, Junior Designer, Maddi (age 16). Coloring is an activity that is great for any age. Don’t be afraid to invite the kiddos in your life to join in on your hobby!


A great approach is to pre stamp panels that they can then color with you. Perhaps make two sets and you can see how each person’s coloring transforms the stamp design in different ways. These panels were stamped onto watercolor paper using Versafine Onyx Black ink, sprinkled with clear embossing powder, and heat embossed.


Maddi has beautifully painted them in using Sakura Koi Field Sketch Box watercolors.


Her vibrant colors and shading are spectacular!


We’d love to see YOUR Junior Designers’ colorful designs, too! Upload their Penny Black stamped projects to our Penny Circle Flickr Gallery and/or our Facebook page. And special thanks to Maddi for sharing her amazing coloring with us today!
