Hi friends, Martha Lucia here! I love stamps that are images that need colored. I want to share with you an easy stamp colored with pencils using the stamp set My Cup Runneth Over.

Slimline card stamped with cups and colored with pencils


I die cut the Stitched Scalloped Nesting Slimline Die onto white card stock and stamped the cups and the sentiment using VersaFine Pigment Onix Ink. Additionally, I masked the lover part part of the card to blend it with two different tones of Harmony Ink. I used the colors Ocean Blue and Oasis.

Close out of the collection of Cups and sentiment that are part of the stamp set My cup runneth over by Joy Clair.

For me coloring time is a relaxing time.  To make it more easy, I limited the color options at the time of coloring. On this opportunity I went with the Bold Brights ColourBlend from Spectrum Noir. It is a small size case of pencil colors of 12 tones, that came in duos. It make easy the coloring and I just started with the light tone and then, moved to dark tones for enhance and shadows.  Additionally, with an Illustrator Marker I created a dot texture around the colored stamp.
