Sweet Stems

I've decided I should regress to school and do some colouring in. The only problem with this is that I am the world's dodgiest colour-inerer. But hey, practice makes perfect, so let's get some new stamp sets!!

So I went through the new catalogue, looking for a set which would be good for me to colour and Sweet Stems fit the bill. There are other stamp sets more specifically designed for colouring, but they aren't always my style. On this one, the flowers are small, so there's only so much colouring I have to do, so it's good my attention span and there's less space to stuff it up!

I used my aquapainter for this, and I picked up some colour from the lid of the inkpads. You just squeeze the ink pad when it's closed, and then some ink will be on the inside of the lid when you open it. You then just dip the brush in and pick up as much colour as you like.

I also loved the opportunity to use some of the new accessories - the paper, ribbon and button are all brand new.

Stamps: Sweet Stems, Pocket Silhouettes
Ink: Riding hood red, kiwi kiss, so saffron, basic black
Cardstock: whisper white, riding hood red
Paper:Washington apple
Other: Riding hood red taffeta ribbon, Sahara sand marker, button bouquet
