I’m absolutely thrilled to bring you my very first post for the very first Young Crafters Unite challenge! Marie and I started this challenge blog with the intentions of showing everyone what us young crafters have to offer and also to celebrate how crafting makes us all feel young at heart, so grab your stamps and some coloring mediums and we hope you’ll join us in this first challenge adventure!
Here’s what I came up with. I was feeling in the coloring mood, so I decided to create three cards – each flower is colored in using a different medium.
Here’s the close-up. I love how smooth the Distress Inks blend together!
This next one was colored with Prismacolor pencils (I have the 48 ct set). The smooth look is unmatched, but you have to make sure to always go over the coloring with a black pen or marker to make the stamped lines really pop. The background is Stick Candy JBS ink.
I hope you enjoyed seeing the differences between the three coloring mediums! As you can see, no matter what you have on hand, you can always create something that looks wonderful with a nice flower image and a little bit of black outlining. :) Make sure to hop over to the YCU challenge blog and link to your creation so you’ll have a chance to win this from our lovely sponsor, Simon Says Stamp!
