10 minute David

Another card swap card today, and I couldn't make a collection of cards without including at least one with one of my favourite stamps!  The great thing about this card is that it only took literally 10 minutes!

I think the stamp is bold enough that you can play a bit fast and loose with the colouring of it, so I coloured this card with distress stains, just drawing with them on the card as if they were pens, not being worried if they strayed over the lines, which they were always going to do because the applicator tips are at least a half inch wide.  I'm really happy with the rough-and-ready appearance of the colour and feel that it works well with this image :)  In a way it's a bit like an oil painting - if you look closely, you can see where the colours have gone over the lines, but when you step back and look at the card as a whole, it totally works!

More tomorrow!  :)

We couldn't have a Dan collection without David, now could we...

This card totally works and as you say the image is bold enough to stand a more primative style of colouring - I really love it Dan.

Toni :o)
