Watercoloring the Succulents (with a Creative Light Bulb)

Hello friends!

It has been super cold in my area this weekend, I stayed home mostly and did some more water-coloring. The Spellbinders Stamp Of The Month is just right for this.
All product links are listed at the end of this post.
I took out all the images and positioned them in my MISTI.

I am a timid colorer, but images like this is manageable.

 Now here is the thing... you may know this already....

DING---->When you color (doing any type of coloring), if you like your outlines not getting lost in your coloring. You can re-stamp it in your MISTI if you leave your stamped paper in the exact same position.  Of course, this doesn't apply if you are doing no-line coloring.

This little "tip" really helps me with my confidence in coloring. I now don't get discouraged when my outlines are blurred from my poor coloring.

I hope that today's Creative Light Bulb is helpful.

Great succulent card. Thanks for the reminder about restamping after you are finished coloring. I tend to clean my stamp, whisk it away and then regret thet I did that. Restamping would be of use to me for sure.

Wonderful tip for restamping. Like the simplicity of just simple stamping and applying the focus to the loose coloring. Fantastic way to practice.

A gorgeous card Virginia. Love the idea of re-stamping. Pencils are particularly bad at making the lines indistinct. Must remember the tip
