New E-Team Blog Hop Series: It's Better With Color

The E-Team is starting a new blog hop series called, "It's Better with Color!" Part 1 is Coloring with Stampavie. These line art images are designed by artists such as Mo Manning, Penny Johnson and Sarah Kay. Stampavie stamps are unmounted acrylic stamps with lots of fine details. That makes them the perfect candidate for coloring. I challenged the E-Team to break out their Copic Markers, inks, and watercoloring skills for this blog hop. We all learned to color in school but no one ever said you had to stop. With the right medium and tools, coloring can be fun.


The E-Team chose their favorite Stampavie image. Their mission was to color away using any medium and tools.  To make it more fun, we also invited the Stampavie Design Team who also took on the challenge. The range of coloring, use of color, and overall design will amaze you. There is something for everyone and you'll see some images that will make you look at that stamp in another way.

Thanks for the chance to win! Perhaps how to combine different types of products of different brands: ink, patterned paper or cardstock... Don't know :)

Fabulous hop. Maybe someday I'll learn to color.

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

Oh another fun hop, will be a great way to spend the dreary, rainy morning. The Team always shows a great variety of uses on these hops.
Topics..shading? facial blends?'I use Copics, Watercolors, Spica's. Coloring is not one of my favorities. I do some flowers, girl images, animals for kids cards.

Bonnie said...

What a fun idea! I already have a list of stamps to order . . . :o)

Shannon said...

I would love to see the E-Team do some project samples with some of the new Tim Holtz Idea-Ology Findings, in particular the cute little Light Bulbs,the dark glassine paper and envelopes and maybe even those ring binders. Love all your Blog Hops, they are not only fun but I love looking at what all the girls come up with, they are all so talented!

My favorite things to color are images for cards. I'm a beginner at coloring, but my favorite way to color at this point is Prismacolor pencils and OMS... but I bought my first Copics last week and I'm loving them, too. This probably sounds crazy, but I'd love to see you give some insight on how to use the colorful patterned papers out there. I love seeing how some people mix several patterns on one card, but I guess I have a phobia about using patterned paper myself. I have trouble using even one pattern, let alone more than one on the same card! I have pad after pad of patterned paper and none of it seems to go together. I don't know that anyone can really teach this skill, but I'd love some help with this if anyone can provide some pointers on the subject.

I'd love to see the gals do some coloring with Ranger's distressed inks...I do blending, but little else.
Love all the great tips.

Jan said...

What a great variety of styles and love the different color choices. Thanks for the chance for the goodies.

Love the hop. So much beautiful art. I was glad to see a few done with water color pencils since it seems just about everyone is using copics these days.
