Doodlie-Do in Color

One very easy way to stamp outline images without needing to color them in is to stamp them in color. On today's card, I went with one flower image, stamped thrice in a visual triangle, in a raspberry ink that pops right off the white paper.

A tip for these sorts of arrangements...stamp the sentiment first, and then work around it. Also, if you plan on adding embellishments to the stamped image, as I have done here, be careful to make sure the places you will put said embellishments aren't hanging half-off the raised panel. I stamped very carefully so my silver half beads would fit nicely on the raised panel.

I just love the vibrant raspberry with the silver accents. The contrast works well, don't you think?

stamps: Papertrey Doodlie-Do, Keep It Simple: Thank You
ink: Hero Arts raspberry, Memento espresso truffle
paper: Papertrey white
accessories: silver half beads, silver metallic marker, metal ruler, dimensionals


  1. Absolutely beautiful. I really do enjoy all your work!!

  2. I've been waiting to see what you would do with this set... and I love what I'm seeing. The raspberry is gorgeous! I've been practicing watercoloring these flowers, but I don't think they lend themselves to that medium. At least for me... so back to my Copics.

  3. I love this! Great idea again!! I did let the tedious coloring intimidate me away from this set - super impressed with your ideas to use it differently!! Kudos!

  4. you are having fun with this set and that silver pen. rock on!!!

  5. While you just touched on it - I LOVE how straight you get your border and that your pen works so well. These outlined, uncolored images sure make a fabulous card


Thank you so much for taking time to comment!
