Video: Turning stamps into silhouettes

Hello hello, it's Michelle! Today I have an easy idea that you can put to use with your outline stamps - simply color them in completely and turn them into silhouettes to create a cool scene!

I made a really easy scene using stamps from the Branching Out stamp set, but this will work with any stamp that has an easily distinguishable outer shape. After stamping my images, I colored them in using dark grey and black Copic markers. The best part about coloring in a silhouette like this is that you can create an awesome Distress Inked background, and you don't even have to mask anything off - the colors won't show up on the grey and black we colored! :)

To finish it off, I handwrote a "deepest sympathy" sentiment in simple script. I did this in white gel pen on top of dark grey cardstock, and then also used the same gel pen to draw in little stars and dots around my trees and sentiment. 
Here's the video showing the entire process!

Hello. Lexa here with (another) fun shaker card using the flower from Unique Peek mini set, cut the center for shakers. I made this pink bunny with Everyday's a Holiday and draw the polkadots by myself. Hope you have a hoppy day!

Hello, Emily here.  Today I'm sharing a birthday card using the stamp set Everyday's a Holiday.  I colored this cute image with the blueberry girl in mind (yep, the girl in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory).  

Hello! Dana here showcasing the new Happy Hero stamp set!! Such a fun set, i paired it with a fun watercolored background!!

Hi all!  Angel here with a Christmas card using the Penguins on Parade set paired up with Everyday's a Holiday!  The sentiment was put together using the Express Yourself set.
