Stained Glass: Circumferential Coloring

Quickly before starting with today’s post: a big sale over at Ellen Hutson! Don’t want you to miss out on some steals in the sale category! Unfortunately as of last night, the stamp set used today was already sold out, darn!

Okay. Now let’s get busy coloring!

It’s beginning to look even MORE like Christmas! And this beautiful stamp set from Taylored Expressions is so lovely – and easy to color.

Stained Glass: Circumferential Coloring

Circumferential coloring sounds fancy – but it’s what I believe a lot of people do. Shading on the outside, along the edges of an item. It’s super easy – Watch the video below or click HERE to see it in HD on YouTube.

There are many stamps in your collection already that you could draw some extra lines in – and make something that looks like stained glass. Wouldn’t that be fun? For the second stamp in this set, I added more “breaks” in the circle around the candle to keep with the stained glass look.sandy-allnock-holy-night-circumferential-coloring

Visit THIS page to see a chart of suggestions for blending. And if you’re interested in more Copic coloring, try the Copic Jumpstart Class! (Can you keep a secret? A new Copic class is underway for early 2017….you’ll definitely want to have Jumpstart ‘under your belt’ before then, as many of the concepts will rely on that knowledge!)

  3. I have an old Stampin’ Up set with 4 stained glass images: one for each season. I’ve tried a few methods for coloring with poor results– will try my alcohol markers.
