The first card is colored using the Big Brush markers and this card shows you what the whole stamp looks like. Other that trimming the sides a bit this is the full stamp. I colored and blended on water color paper with the markers, trimmed out and matted the image and then stickled with yellow stickles to "highlight" the yellow areas on the card. Im my mind this is the "sunlight" hitting the objects on a fall day.
The second card is colored with watercolor pencils. And this method is so easy and fast to do! I basically colored everything but the cornicopia, fence and basket yellow and then added appropriate blending colors from there. Once all colors added I pulled out a brush and cup of water and blended away. This method is nice as if you make a mistake you can use the water to "push" the color back or simply wait till the image is dry and then add more pencil again. On this card I cut out the fence and leaves....mounted them first and then added the pumpkin/cornicopia section of the card on pop up dots. I also cut out several leaves that I had left over from the third card and popped them up on dots also. I added the brass sentiment that says "capture life's moments", stickled with yellow again and that card was done!
