Sponge Dauber Coloring Card

Hi Everyone! Just a card I made coloring with a sponge dauber. My sponge dauber is my best friend. LOL! It's my favorite color applicator because I can color images really, really quickly. Obviously, coloring with a sponge dauber will not result in detailed coloring but it helps to cover a large area in short order! I also love blending different colors and creating layers of colors like I did with my card.

I rarely use my SU wheels because many times, the images are tiny and there's a lot of image to color. I don't want to just stamp the image as just outlines but I'm too darn lazy to color the images individually. I'm about quick and easy! LOL!

Anyway. . .I rolled the wheel using black ink then colored the images with SU More Mustard and Real Red by swirling and rubbing the color on to the white cardstock. I also applied Stardust gel pen on to parts of the image and the sentiment. Nothing much else to the card.

Card Details:

Stamps: SU Bitty Bugs Wheel, CTMH Thing of Beauty
Paper: SU More Mustard, Real Read, Black
Accessories: Fiskar Scallop border punch, sponge dauber, Making Memories ribbon, Gelly Roll Startdust Clear pen

What a great color combo! I don't have any daubers yet - but feel like I need to get some after seeing this card! (any recommendations on daubers?) I love the soft look that the daubers give of all the blended colors.
best wishes,

ps - just a quick question - after you are done making a card - where do you store the cards? Do you organize them in any way or store them in any specific way?

Ouuu! This is the world's most perfectest layout for wheels (wheels are a neglected species of stamp-creature) ;0) Love your technique with the sponge dauber. My sponge daubers used to be my bestfriends, but their mad at me because I forgot about them, LOL. Love that hit of black; it really ties in the ink. :0)
