WOW! Video: Easy Coloring with Sponge Daubers

Click on the video above to watch!

I was WOW’d at the Stampin’ Up! On-Stage event last month when they demonstrated how quick and easy it is to use Sponge Daubers to color stamp images.  I love the soft finish and vintage look when Powder Pink is used to color Crumb Cake card stock.

    I very much enjoy your videos. I always learn something. I’m sorry to say I couldn’t watch this video as there was no closed-captions. Most people would be okay with this.

    How long do you wait after stamping the image in the black archival ink before coloring?

  9. Thanks, Kadie. I sure wish it was easier to see the Wink of Stella glitter in the photos and videos. It’s the perfect, subtle touch of glimmer

    BRAVO Mary for sharing this bundle with us. The sponge dauber works like a charm for this set. And adding the Wink of Stella is brilliant.
