YNS After Party!

Hi all!  Welcome to my little post in the Your Next Stamp June New Release After Party!

When I started stamping many, many years ago, I didn’t like to color.  So for all the non-colorers out there, I thought I’d go back to my stamping roots to show you that you don’t have to avoid line image art if you don’t color.

I have 2 super simple one-layer cards for you today.  The first has no coloring at all:


I simply stamped the boy farmer image and a sentiment from Howdy, Farmer in white on kraft cardstock and added a little rustic twine to finish it off.  I love white on kraft!  And while you could color this in if you really wanted to, I don’t think you have to!  You could also stamp him in a muted yellow or light brown ink and leave him as is – I think those would work too!


This card, also using Howdy, Farmer has just a teeny bit of coloring with colored pencils, but just to accent little bits of it.  Most of it was left uncolored so this can be done by even the non-colorers out there!  I just accented the flower in her hair, her rosy cheeks, the dirt ground and the corn, since the sentiment is about the cream of the crop.  Super easy!

I hope you’re enjoying all these new releases and know that you can use line art images even if you don’t like to or don’t want to color!
