Inspired Stamps - My Style


Happy Thursday!  Today's Inspired Stamps post, we welcome four new Design Team members as well as sharing a little about our cardmaking style.  Make sure you stop by the Inspired Stamps blog to meet and  welcome the new Design Team.  I can't wait to see their awesome work!

If you have been following my blog, you'll know I absolutely LOVE colouring.  When I first started stamping and cardmaking, I was so afraid of colouring and I stayed clear of open images.  Somewhere along the line, I bought some colour pencils and started practising.  Then, about 2 years ago, I read about Copic Markers, and I bought a few to try and you could say the rest is history.  I was never really good at colouring, but with Copics I am amazed at the results one can achieve.


Inspired Stamps has really some Wonderful character images.  I'm sharing my favourite today, Esther's Bouquet with a sentiment from the Winter Ruth set.  My cardmaking style is pretty simple.  I just love the stamped image as my focal point, and I love to use die-cuts and patterned papers too.

Thank you for stopping by today.  I'd love to hear what your style is too.

Take care!
Kary

Hi Kary - love this, and your colouring has always been amazing to me :-). My style leans more towards the CAS, but I seem to be able to turn my hand to whatever I want/need to do.
