Wonderful Wednesday Coloring #12 by Guest Designers Gwendolyn, Renee, and Vinita + Comment to Win!

Happy Wednesday, STAMPlorations friends! I hope those of you who celebrate Christmas had a wonderful time yesterday. My two girls sure did! Anyway, we're back with the twelfth installment of Wonderful Wednesday Coloring, a special feature we started while the regular STAMPgirls were on a summer break. Our guest designers share gorgeous projects featuring STAMPlorations products using various coloring techniques.

super talented guest designers -- GwendolynRenee, and Vinita -- are back with their last helping of projects showcasing STAMPlorations stamps. Their fabulous creations are guaranteed to inspire and get you in the mood to color! After this post, Wonderful Wednesday Coloring will take a break for a couple of months and then be back with a new batch of guest designers in March.

Comment here and on our guest designers' personal blogs for a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the STAMPlorations store. We'll announce the winner in the December Winners post on January 10.





STAMPlorations products Gwendolyn used:

I coloured the same stamp three different ways & the first way was just to add a shiny watercolour background using metallic watercolours


For the 2nd card I went with a monochromatic look using my Koi markers. The Thanks word diecut was watercoloured & coloured with clear Spectrum Noir sparkle pen to make it shine!

I watercoloured my last card using only two colours. I added the same Thanks diecut which was watercoloured in red this time. I cut this panel  and matted it on a yellow card base.



STAMPlorations products Renee used:

Candles painted with Kuretake paints with a hint of coppery paint.

Negative painting with distress inks.

Against a cloudy background with distress inks, spattered paint and Copic markers.



STAMPlorations products Vinita used:

Splatter technique using the stencil. Colorful splatters background using sprays.


Ink on block and pressed firmly on the stamped image using DI.

Then applied sticky adhesive and pressed the silver foil for shine and texture.


Dry embossed background using stencils. Butterflies embossed in glitter and then colored with Zig brushes.


I bet you learned a technique or two in today's post. Gwendolyn, Renee, and Vinita have been awesome guest designers and if you'd like to see more of their work, consider following their blogs. I'd like to thank them for sharing their time and creative talents here for the past 3 months. Their beautiful projects are awesome additions to our growing gallery -- we've got over 4,200 projects on our Pinterest gallery!

If you want a chance to win a $15 gift certificate to the STAMPlorations store, leave a comment here and on our guest designers' blogs by Tuesday, January 8. We'll announce the winner in the December Winners post on January 10.

And make sure you check back here before the year ends. I have a special post you all won't want to miss :o)
