Hi there, Martha Lucia here to share some of my cards with the Prized Life digital set. Today I will show you how to make an easy coloring with digital stamps. I am using Alcohol Markers from Spectrum Noir. In addition, I am creating with the same concept the three cards: one main image and one sentiment.

To make my first card I just arranged three times the same flower on one of the sides of the front panel. The digital stamps from Joy Clair Designs include three different formats, I prefer to work with png format. It let me take advantage of the transparency.


Sometimes coloring can intimidate but I find it the most relaxing therapy. The Illustrator markers have a Japanese tip. It is flexible and you can simply follow the lines of the paper and create easy shadows with two colors of markers and a blender. I made this on this card. With two pink colors and two gray colors, I created the look. Normally, I start the coloring process with the lightest color and then create the shadow with the dark. In addition, I apply a second layer of the lightest color and enhance the details with the dark.


The second card follow the same design concept of the first. I arranged three of the flowers included on the Prized Life Digital Set and one sentiment and arranged all over one side of the top layer.

I colored this with Illustrator Markers from Spectrum Noir and as final touch, I splatered with Metallic White Shimmer Paint.

The third and last one card is using the nest and sentiment on the center of the card. I just decorated it using a scallop die border from RG and the Just Stitch Frame available at Joy Clair Designs.

You have the opportunity to learn a lot of coloring techniques but following just the light on an image and using a few elements you can create beautiful things. For me coloring is made to applied the rule of less is more!
