Bold Flower Stamps

Is it weird that I still love to color? Based on the popularity of Copic Markers I’m betting there are at least a few people who get the joy of coloring. Last Christmas I bought myself a set of Copics. Unfortunately they come at a much higher price tag than a 25 cent box of crayons, but they can do things a crayon never could! I’m still learning and working on my shading, but I wanted to share a fun technique for big bold flowers.

Stamps would work, but in this case I actually drew my flowers on my Pazzles Inspiration with the Pen Tool and a black fine line Sharpie. The flower file is from the Pazzles Craft Room and is the same one I used on my Watercolor Layout. Drawing my stamps rather than using real stamps is so much easier, because I can size them as I’d like and then cut them out with my machine. Pen Tool Flowers

For this card I colored in my flowers using three different shades of mint and then worked on blending them together. The bold bright colors really pop off the paper.

Supplies:

Pazzles Inspiration and Pazzles Craft Room Files
