Stampin’ Blends

Pull out your Stampin’ Blends or any other Alcohol Ink Markers you have on hand and blend the colors on your image. See examples of when I used Stampin’ Blends HERE. You can do this on regular Whisper White Cardstock using Memento Ink.

Inks & Blender Pen

Ink & Shimmer Paint

10 Ways to Color Stamped Images | Stampin' Up!

Create your own Shimmer Paint coloring medium. In any Water Painter add 10 – 12 drops of Frost White Shimmer Paint, then fill with 70% (or higher) Alcohol. I suggest depressing an Acrylic Block into your ink pad to pick up the ink. This way you can use the ink off the block and not transfer any shimmer to the lid of your Ink Pad. You can do this on regular Whisper White Cardstock or Watercolor Paper.

Coloring with a Dauber

10 Ways to Color Stamped Images | Stampin' Up!

Coloring with a dauber is so easy! Daub the Sponge Dauber into your ink pad then apply it to your stamped image. See more examples of blending with a Sponge Dauber HERE.

Inked Stamps & Water Spritzer

10 Ways to Color Stamped Images | Stampin' Up!

Ink up any stamp then spritz the stamp with water before you apply the ink to the image. This creates a beautiful water-colored effect. You can do this on regular Whisper White Cardstock or Watercolor Paper.

Inked Background & Shimmer Spritzer

10 Ways to Color Stamped Images | Stampin' Up!

Ink up any stamp then spritz the stamp with Shimmer Spray before you apply the ink to the image. This creates a beautiful shimmery water-colored effect. (Create Shimmer Spray using the same ingredients for the Shimmer Water Painter above, except this time mix into a spritzer bottle) SEE Sprays Mixture Video. You can do this on regular Whisper White Cardstock or Watercolor Paper.
