Coloring Summer Note Cards With TPD Stamps

Can I just say how much I love this new stamp set from Two Paper Divas Stamps?  It's called, "Stuck on You" and is one of the fun, new stamp sets in the July release.

  Make a set of colored note cards, and have them on hand when you want to quickly drop a note to a friend.  This card was so quick and easy to color.  Switch out the sentiments and make a bunch or give some as gift sets to friends.

You don't even need to use an ink pad for this project.  Swipe your black marker across your stamp instead, then stamp on your cardstock, starting in the center and space out additional images on each side.  I simply eyeball it.  I used a strip of washi tape across the bottom to line up the bottom edge of the pottery though, so my images would all stamp evenly.   A quick tip for getting varied shades on the leaves?  Swipe your marker down once on your leaf, leaving a little white space along one side.  Color in with a lighter shade.  I love to use the fine tip of my Tombow Dual brush markers to just add another thin line of dark shade along just one edge of each leaf.  When I finished coloring, I swiped the blender brush down each leaf to blend more light.

Use a plain colored brown pencil or watercolor pencil and shade a little around the bottom of the pottery for added definition and a little eye pleasing pop.  A white gel pen adds some additional embellishment, and turns this into more of an aloe or snake plant, don't you think.  I'd like to say I have a green thumb but the closest I come to keeping plants alive is on paper!
