Good morning, Sunshine! How's that for optimism on a cloudy day!
I'm still waiting for the sunshine to appear so that I can take the pictures for my coloring tutorial. It looks like the cloud cover might disperse in time for me to take pictures this afternoon for the tutorial. While I work on that, I thought I would give you a quick tip.
I was in need of a few simple note cards and stamped(Artistic Borders again) directly on the linen textured cards. Normally I choose smooth card stock for coloring, but I wanted to see what this would be like. I really like this look.
I used a very light touch to color because I didn't want to damage the texture. To darken or shade, I went over the area several times.
In the close up you can see the texture. This is the same card before I added Liquid Pearls and chunky glitter to the centers. I'll probably add a bow to the stems made of some pretty ribbon(with a glue dot) before I send it out.
This is an example of thinking out of the box. Color on something other than smooth white paper. Try it if you haven't done it before.
