Clean and Simple Colouring with the Hello Colour Stamp set

I really love to colour in!  I find it therapeutic to do and very calming.  And luckily there are a number of stamp sets we have available from StampinUp Australia that are designed with this purpose in mind.... and today I have used the large stamp image from the "Hello Colour" stamp set.  This is a great set if you love colouring too.   Here it is:

But instead of giving it the full colour treatment, today I went with one of my favourite looks... colouring with White Gel pen.  The secret to getting this technique to work well is to use medium coloured cardstock as your base... by medium colour I mean not too dark, and not too light.  You want your stamp image in a darker colour so that it stands out well, and you want the white pen to show up well against the background cardstock too.

On this card I used Night of Navy ink for my stamped image.  The white gel pen is a broad tip pen from Uniball. I got mine at my local craft supplies store, but you can also get them from Officeworks,  Kikki K and some newsagents.  Just make sure it is a broad tip... the fine tip won't give you the result you want.

The sentiment is from the "Hello Friend" stamp set

Here's a close up for you.
