wonderful wednesdays with Kathy Rac- PAMELA the POINSETTIA rubber stamp

Hello Everyone, My name is Kathy Racoosin and I am the host of The 30 Day Coloring Challenge & I am super excited to be back on the Stamping Bella Blog.It’s Day 23. but,  I have cooking on the brain since we have a small crowd coming for Thanksgiving.   Rather than think about coloring I relied on the beautiful coloring on the Stamping Bella packaging (coloured by Elaine of course!) to guide me,  especially with the shading on the petals on the skirt.

wonderful wednesdays with Kathy Rac- PAMELA the POINSETTIA rubber stamp

Coloring a background wasn’t something I wanted to take the time for today so I cut out this sweet chick, TINY TOWNIE PAMELA the POINSETTIA,  and popped her on my card base. Inking up the sentiment and coloring a frame was fast and easy. Wink of stella was added to the skirt and boots

I forgot to mention that I had cut out another skirt before I decided to cut her out. Love me some layers. Before I stuck her down I grabbed my ink blending tool and a stencil and gave my card base a touch of color. Thanks again for Stamping Bella for letting me guest with them this month it’s been super fun. See you next week for my last project. If you live in the US  have a Happy Thanksgiving. Hugs, Kathy

Ok now back to our regularly scheduled program.

KathyRACabella coloured something up for us today.. it’s totally YUMMALISH!

Here are the supplies Kathy used on her CHRISTMASBUG RUBBER STAMP and DIE BUNDLE set!

supplies:

Christmas Bug

Memento London fog

Glossy accents

Fantasia Artist premium colored pencils

Signs white gel pen

Wonderful Wednesdays with Kathy Racoosin- CHRISTMAS BUG STAMP and DIE set

Copic coloring is much faster but, I wanted to see what I could do with this beautiful and detailed stamp. I stamped the “Christmas Bug” with Memento London fog Ink. Starting at the top of my image and working my way down leaves less smudges on my project

Wonderful Wednesdays with Kathy Racoosin- CHRISTMAS BUG STAMP and DIE set

The sharper my pencil the better I can add shading. I just purchased a Kum Automatic Long Point sharpener and I love it. It probably would have been better to add the yellow halo around the lights first … I will try that next time.

Wonderful Wednesdays with Kathy Racoosin- CHRISTMAS BUG STAMP and DIE set

Taking a chance and coloring over the ornaments was probably a good choice and it saved some time.

Wonderful Wednesdays with Kathy Racoosin- CHRISTMAS BUG STAMP and DIE set

I used  a Signo Uni-Ball  white gel pen to add the ornaments back in since I covered them up. You can take a Copic marker to gingerly add color on the white gel accents. (Always test it on some scrap paper first especially if you have a different marker) I also added a white highlight with the gel pen to the lights. Then glossy accents were added to lights, ornaments, and the rims…is that what the inside of the tire is called lol.

 

on another note … It’s Day 16. of  “The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge” if you have been watching from the side lines or if you have been on the fence now is a good time to dip your toes in and see if you like it. 🙂 We would love to have you join.
