Make your Solid Stamped Images POP!

The other day I mentioned that I earned a new stamping tip!  The TIP: Add dimension to flat stamped images with colored pencils.  This is different then coloring in line art.  Check out this Fall pumpkin card with the oh so gorgeous pumpkins from the Martha’s Pumpkins bundle. (say that 5 times fast!)

This is what they look like if you just stamp them in Tangerine Fusion ink.  A little flat and kinda boring.  When I added the color with the Journey Color Burst Pencils = WOW!

If I can do this, you can too! I’m not super artistic but I can add a little bit of shading.  Check out the video tutorial where I add some color to the acorns from this card here and then I add color to the pumpkins and make the pumpkin card.   The video is a little bit long (sorry) but you really wont believe how easy it is! 

What do you think?  Can you add color to your images?  Can you tell I just “wing” it and layer the colors?  The image really does POP! Check out the acorns from my post the other day.  I was pretty happy with my flat acorns but this is really fun!
