Coloring BLISS with Mimi

March 1, 2017


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.


Micheline “Mimi’s” approach to coloring BLISS gives the look of no-line watercolor to our Slapstick/Cling stamp, 40-507 Awaken.


She began by inking her stamp with Distress Stains and ink pads, misting with water, and stamping onto watercolor paper.


She went back and blended the colors, petal by petal, using a paintbrush and water.


Once complete, she added color to the background.


A few splatters and a sentiment and her gorgeous panel was finished.



Micheline “Mimi” has a bonus for us today… two more cards using the same technique and stamp.


Just vary the colors for a completely different look.

    I just wanted to take the time today to say thank you so much for Mimi’s Tutorials! I have been waiting for a very long time to see her watercoloring work and I do appreciate Mimi’s Photo Tutorials & her Video Tutorial in the previous week!! I love her work & it was so great to see her complete a project on video as well as the photo tutorials! Mimi is amazing! Thank you so much! I would also love to see a video from Birgit Edblom as I know many others would as well watercoloring with Penny Black Stamps! Or at least a photo tutorial of her steps with her favorite watercolors & paper. Again, thank you so much PB!
