Art With Heart Creative Showcase July - Colouring Techniques

The Art With Heart Team are back with another Creative Showcase, this time featuring different colouring techniques.The Stampin’ Up! range contains a bevy of functional and effective colouring tools that include;

Blends Markers
Water Painters
 Ink Pads and Ink Spots
Sponge Daubers 
Sponge Rollers
Blender Pens
Stampin’ Write Markers
Watercolour Pencils


Enjoy the amazing projects our team members have to share with you demonstrating these products.
 For my card today I have used some of my products from my pre-order for the upcoming August-December Mini Catalogue. 
The products used are the Dove of Hope stamp set and the Detailed Dove Dies, which if ordered together in the Dove of Hope Bundle will save you 10%.

For my card I stamped one of the doves in Versamark onto Seaside Spray card stock and embossed with Silver Embossing Powder.

I coloured the dove with White Craft Ink and a Water Painter. While the ink pad was closed I squeezed the top and the bottom of the ink pad together so that a puddle of ink formed inside the lid that I used as my pallet to collect the ink with the Water Painter. 
The bauble was painted with a Water Painter and Real Red ink. There is a small section in the middle of the bauble that is painted with a Wink of Stella brush.

The greeting was stamped in Versamark ink and embossed in Silver Embossing Powder. The die used to cut out the greeting is from the All Dressed Up set.
The final touches are two sprigs cut from Red Foil paper and three Rhinestone Jewels.

The next Art With Heart Team member to share their colouring technique with you is the very talented Tina Gillespie.
