What if the classic Radio Flyer wagon was pink??? What if??? The beauty of crafting is you can make a pink wagon ! (and I wonder where my daughter gets it from. Check out this post here). I was working on a card for no apparent reason–I just wanted it to be summery and bring a smile. Here it is:
Well, it made ME smile….I would love to see a pink wagon–Especially if it was full of flowers and a bird!
This happy little stamp set is called “For The Birds”. My tip for this set is to cut the greetings off (If you are using wood mount, mount them to the side of the block. If you are a “Clear” stamper, just make sure you don’t lose the pieces!). That way, you can say whatever you want with your birds. Sure, there are other ways to omit greetings from your stamp but this certainly is the easiest.
You could use markers, Watercolor Pencils, Watercolor crayons, or ink with Aqua Painters or Blender pens to color this in. I went with the ink and Aquapainter. When using aquapainters or paintbrushes, you are best to use watercolor paper or Naturals White or Naturals Ivory paper. But be sure to stamp your image with StazOn first. You don’t want it to bleed. Nothin’ worse than a bleedin’ bird!
If you are concerned about staying in the lines and/or filling in every little white space with color, LET IT GO! If you are reading this, you have made it through 2nd grade. After second grade, we are no longer graded on staying in the lines. In fact, your creation takes on more character when you don’t fill in every spot. There–I just gave you permission. You are welcome!
It is fun to color. Admit it! Go try it!
