TEACH me That!  A new series by the Technique Design Team.  Learn a new technique every Thursday at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com.

I am so excited to share my BRAND NEW series, Teach Me That!  Every Thursday I will be sharing a new technique to help take your stamping creativity to a whole new level.  Who’s excited?!!!  I am honored to be working with the Technique Design Team to bring you share new tips & techniques each Thursday.

Today in Teach Me That, I will be showing you how to take an ordinary stamped image and incorporate the look of “adult coloring” to it.  The best part?  It’s easy and FUN!  Warning:  It’s also addicting!

TEACH me That!  A new series by the Technique Design Team.  Learn a new technique every Thursday at www.SimplySimpleStamping.com.

 

  • Stamp images randomly on cardstock, filling in as much space as you can.
  • Use a Project Life Journal Pen, fine tip Sharpie or any black pen and trace around all the images. Trace right on the image and/or around the image.  Just doodle and have fun.
  • Be careful not to smear black ink so work from the top to the bottom.
  • If you make a mistake, just doodle over it.
  • Don’t worry if your doodles aren’t perfect.  It’s a doodle.  It’s okay for it not to be perfect.

Other Ideas to ZenDoodle to give each image a different look:

  • Add dots
  • Add squiggles
  • Dotted lines
  • Double trace around an image
  • Bling it up with rhinestones

You’re ready to use the ‘ZenDoodled’ cardstock to create a card.  Here are the measurements for my card: 

  • Rich Razzleberry – 8 ½” x 5 ½”, score and fold at 4 ¼”
  • Daffodil Delight – 4 ¼” x 3 ¾”
  • Whisper White – 4” x 3 ½”
  • Pool Party 1 ½” x 3 ½” and White 1 ¼” x 3 ¼” (Triple Banner Punch)
