There is a new release from Catherine Pooler designs and I got to play with the stamps and dies from the Calling for Drizzle Bundle. It has a cute ‘Bloomin’ Wellies’ stamp set which was screaming for me to colour it! Well I did just that, but I coloured it with my ink pads. Want to know how? well read on to find out how to colour with your ink pads!

Colour with your ink pads

Let's colour with your ink pads

Start off by stamping one of the wellies from the ‘Bloomin’ Wellies’ stamp set onto white card with permanent ink. Here I used Midnight Catherine Pooler Ink. Next, select a some ink pad colours to colour with. 

Colour with your ink pads

The colours I used on this card feature:

To colour, you need a colourless blended pen. You can use the Dove Blender Pen or the Tombow Colourless blender.

Use your blender pen to pick up ink from your pad – the easiest way is to push your ink pad lid down onto the pad to pick up ink and use this as a palette.  Colour the image in, but be careful not to overload the paper – it will start to pill if you add to much liquid when painting. 

Assembling the design

After you have finished colouring the image in, use the coordinating dies to die-cut the image out. Next for the background, use a palette knife to add some embellishment mouse to a card pane. Here I used Poppy Pink and Cornflower Blue colours

After the background panel is dry, adhere this to a card base, before foam mounting the stamped image on the top. In addition, heat emboss a sentiment in Opaque Bright White Embossing Powder from the Bloomin’ Wellies stamp set.
