Coloring a Stamped image with Goo Gone

The technique I am gonna share with you today is very easy. Lately I have been all about using things I have on hand and this technique was great.

You will need:
~Goo Gone
~your favorite stamp
~wax based colored pencils (in your choice of colors)
~blending stump
~white cardstock

1. Stamp your image on white cardstock using the ink you chose.

2. Outline the corner of your stamped image with your colored pencil. Make sure you use pressure and get a good amount of color. Always start with the lighter colors first.
The bigger the stamp the more of the stamp you will need to outline. With this stamp I ended up outlining all the way around the edge.

3. Soak the tip of your blending stump in the Goo Gone and begin using circular motions to blend the color into the colorless area of your image. You will need to redip your blending stump into the Goo Gone when you feel it dragging.

When you are finished blending the colored pencils add your own flare to the image. Here I used some dew drops and then added my stamped images to a piece of cardstock.

A couple tips:

~Use the sandpaper to sharpen the tip of your blending stump.
~Try using a different blending stump for each colored pencil.

When you are finished feel free to share a link to your creation in the comments section.
