Happy Monday everyone 😀 and welcome to a week of inspiration featuring a stamp set called Count On Me. This super cute set is just adorable. Full of animals and some lovely sentiments it's suitable for all ages.
This set is a great one for those new to stamping as its images are clean and simple in many ways. They are also fabulous for colouring in , in many mediums. I have had great fun creating samples to share this week.
For today's #simplestamping inspiration I have used the kangaroo. I think she looks so sweet. I stamped her in black ink then coloured her in with pencils. I used a rust brown/ orange as a base layer then went over with a grey pencil to create the body colour. Short strokes help create a feeling of texture. I coloured the flower in a pretty shade of pink with a yellow center just because it makes me smile.
I then felt as if the roo was kind of floating in the middle of thw white space. To combat this I could have used the grass stamp and given shadows underneath her. What I decided to do was to use a sentiment stamp to give my roo somewhere to nestle on the card.
First I stamped the sentiment in black ink. Next I chose a soft grey colour ink and stamped the sentiment around the image in a staggered way down the right-hand side.
