Here is how you can alter that stamped, or digital image that you bought, with this simple Colouring Tutorial and make it look different each time you use it.
Do you get bored using the same stamp time and time again?
And do you want another way to alter the look for your creations?
Or perhaps you don't think that you can colour in images and get a good result that you are happy with.
Maybe you don't have the time to sit and colour them in, or maybe you just don't want to go to all that trouble
This colouring tutorial can give you another idea you may like to try.
So why not consider this easy way to give a you a different look to those stamped or printed digital images that you have sitting in your "Stash".
You don't need any special skills or even be able to draw.
This basic colouring tutorial will show you how to get an individual look for your designs with just a colouring pen.
Once you have added the hatch markings to your chosen image you could simply leave it at that, if that was the look you liked.
Or you could do as I have done and colour the blocks in alternately for a diamond effect.
And whoever says you can't have checked pink or blue hippopotamus ... well, just tell them they are wrong.
This cute blue Hippopotamus is done with large polka dots and she looks just as pretty.
This is Hettie and she is a digital download from the "Does my bum...." collection from
I have decoupaged the bottom portion of the hippo with foam pads to make it look even larger
I have had Hettie for a long time and I don't know if she will still be available for you to buy.
Although there is Ella the elephant in the same theme.
And of course there are many more animals hat can have this kind of effect added to them as a fun element.
You can find her at present in the Retiring Collections on their website, so you will have to be quick if you want the image.
And there are many ways to use this delightful image on your cards.
It is certainly a good idea to dig out your old stamps, and go through any that you have that you especially like, and re think the way they can be coloured and used on your projects.
Just relax and have fun with whatever you decide to use as your colouring medium ...
