Coloring Techniques, Part 5

As promised, I have a super favorite to share with you today.  This coloring technique has been a long-time favorite of mine ... coloring with an Aqua Painter.  You use the ink directly from the ink pad, so it's a quick way to get started on your project and a quick way to clean up when you're finished.  With the ink pad closed, simply squeeze gently on the lid, creating a puddle of ink to use for your project.  Open your pad and you're ready to begin.
This method of coloring allows for plenty of shading and works for any outline images that you wish to color.  I've gently sponged around the image and then stamped a few 'speckles' from our Gorgeous Grunge set, for added interest.  This is a super favorite new stamp set of mine!

Here's the card I made using this technique:

Come on back for my next post and we'll start taking a look at section 2 of my journal.
