hello with Lawn Fawn

hello with Lawn Fawn by Kimberly Crawford
Hello! Not every card gets picked up for publication, including this one. And that’s ok. Why? Because I really like the way this card turned out regardless. And I get to share it with you!

I stamped these cute images from Lawn Fawn onto actual book paper. Knowing that the paper was thin and old, I knew that coloring the images could be a challenge.

Fantastix from Imagine Crafts/Tsukineko was the perfect solution. What are they you ask? They are ink pad material (or something similar) rolled inside a plastic tube with a rounded end or a tip.

To use them you simply press the tips into your ink pad (dye based is best for this) and color away. By putting the nib down on the parts I wanted darker first, I was able to add some depth to my coloring. Pretty neat huh?

If you would like to see the Fantastix in action, stop on over and watch a video tutorial here: Coloring

thanks for stopping by!
