"She Colored!"

While contemplating the SOS#199 Challenge (Opposite Day), I thought about coloring because that's the opposite of what I ordinarily do. As I looked through my stash, however, I realized why I rarely color: I don't own many outline stamps.

This seems obvious now that I think about it, but it sure makes the Copic/Bic/Sharpie collection I have seem sort of superfluous, doesn't it?

This envelope stamp was already out for my other SOS card, so I used it. The results are colorfully happy!

Yellow, two shades of orange, and two shades of green...arranged so the same color never edges itself (though they might meet at points). I prefer coloring images with thicker lines...makes things a little more forgiving for those of us without rock-steady hands. But this turned out better than I thought it would!

Note to self: must order more Gina K Deluxe white card stock in the 120# weight.

I hope you all had a lovely weekend! We in Ohio were blessed with perfect weather...which we deserved after all the rain we've had lately. Sunshine is so uplifting!

stamps: Hero Arts CL404
ink: Memento tuxedo black
paper: not sure, but it bled through slightly, which is annoying
