The House That Stamps Built: Pick of the Week

Donna here, with my turn for "POTW" which means Pick of the Week for
The House That Stamps Built, basically I can do a project, tutorial
or whatever strikes me.  MY POTW is inspired by my friend Barb
who had a card on her blog using the "q-tip technique" which I had
never heard of before so I had to try it.  So lets get started.
Gather your supplies:  Cardstock: white 4 1/4" by 5 1/2" -several sheets,
various dye inks, q-tips rubber banded together- I got the most control
 with 2-3 together, stamps  of your choice, I used Repeat Impressions:
 1614-J, Fall Tree, 1610-J, Spring Tree

Stamp your image, using a MISTI or stamp positioner if you have one. Dip your
q-tip bundle into your die inks and dab on image.  Continue dipping and
dabbing until you have colored and achieved the effect you want.  Restamp
your image to bring out your image.

Layer and embellish as desired, I have two examples for you:

I hope you will try and enjoy this technique, thanks for stopping by!

Same tree, two different seasons. I’ll keep this coloring technique in mind for a future make...
