Foolproof Coloring: Using Solid Circle Stamps

Here's a quick and easy way to add color to outline images -- stamp solid circles over the image.


This Bamboo Rose set from Altenew is perfect for coloring (and has some great sentiments, too). But I wasn't happy with my results, so I reached for a classic set, Bokeh Dots from Essentials by Ellen. It's just dots and outline circles, but comes in handy all the time. Stamped different sizes of dots with Altenew Frosty Pink, Buttercream, and Frayed Leaf inks onto the flowers and leaves.

Added a line stamp under the sentiment and a few clear sequins and walked away.


MOOD WHEN DONE = Happy

    Many believe that one day, soon in fact, that EVs or Electric Vehicles will be the way everyone gets around. Personally, I have my doubts, and it's not that EVs do not offer some great advantages, it's just that for wide-spread adoption, they also have a number of disadvantages especially if we are talking about everyone owning an electric automobile instead of gas driven. Let's talk shall we?
