"Daubing" With Blessings of Home!

 Do you like coloring on your papercrafting projects?!  Is that soothing & relaxing to you or just time-consuming & annoying?!  Personally...I LOVE coloring.  It is totally calming for me.  BUT...sometimes I am in a hurry or need to make a bunch of the same card or whatever else that just doesn't make it feasible to do any detail coloring.  But I still want to add a pop of color.  Welcome to SPONGE DAUBERS!  I love these things!  (Picture of them at bottom for reference.) I used them to add some color to this image that was stamped with the Blessing of Home Stamp Set.  It is quick, easy, & CUTE!  

Colors Soft Sea Foam, Petal Pink, Soft Suede, Whisper White
Inks: Soft Sea Foam, Petal Pink, Soft Suede, Memento Black
Cardstock/Papers: Soft Sea Foam, Petal Pink, Whisper White
Stamps: Blessing of Home
Tools: Sponge Daubers, Water Painter (for splatter)
Accessories: Linen Thread, Artistry Blooms Adhesive-Backed Sequins

See how easy!  Stamp your image, daub your dauber into your ink choice, "daub" onto the image where you want that color, 

***TIP: I "daub" off on scratch paper first to avoid getting a super heavy concentration of color on my first daub on my image

and then rub in circles around image to get a little variation of color.  The point of this is to NOT have it look perfect & clean!  You WILL go out of the lines, and I LOVE that part.  It is artistic...not perfect.  😁 I also added some splatter and distressing to add some texture and detail to this fairly simple card.  

Check out the details!

I really love this card!  It is very pretty & feminine to me...without a ton of "fluff."  And, as promised, here is what the sponge daubers are...for reference!

So what do you think?!  Want to try this technique!  I hope so!  Go give it a whirl and let me know how it goes!  Let me know if you have any questions!

Thanks so much for visiting!  Let me know if I can help you with any of your papercrafting needs!  I would love to help!
