Default Justice or Injustice?

I was browsing the gallery this early Friday morning and ran across this card:

http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...78?limit=last1
(great card btw!!)

And I love these types of stamps. But, and I stress BUT!! I tend to shy away from buying ones like this because I don't feel I would do them "justice" in coloring them, I've not experimented with Gamsol Magic,and I'm not too comfortable with my water coloring to get that vibrant look on cards that I love to see.


So my question is what type of stamps do you shy away from because you just dont feel you do a justice to them?

I, too, shy away from large outline stamps with lots of space to color in. Small outline stamps are fine--the coloring is just easier to manage for a coloring-challenged person like me. And frankly, I just don't want to practice the coloring techniques enough to get really good at them. So I just admire other people's art and stick to what I do best--clean and simple and quick.

Lately, I've seen a lot of pretty paper piecing with these sorts of stamps and think if a stamp set is appropriate for that (and the cutting not too intricate) I might be able to do something with it.

Me too!!!! I might consider using them done in all one color like a Prussian Blue or Sepia, but I'd never try to color them in Kincaid style....they'd be ruined for sure. I'll leave that to those talented individuals who really make them come alive.

I love to color, and I just tried the goo gone pen instead of the gamsol and stumps and it worked great! I also have some of the Kinkade stamps but haven't really sat down to try and color them yet. I think it is a matter of taking your time and since I am not a patient person, I would have to do it in small chunks. I tend to stay away from the solid images because they usually end up blotchy.

Me, too! I bought a Northwoods scene stamp with loons on a pond and the moon in the sky. My attempts at coloring that were so pathetic I've avoided any scene stamps like that since.

I tend to avoid the 2 or 3-step stamps. Like Roses in Winter or some of the Kitchen Sink stamps. They are gorgeous and I would love to use them, but I just don't think I could imagine to make them look decent. Heck even the fairly simple 2-step stamps like Heartfelt Thanks don't always come out looking decent for me.

For some scene stamps (like Thomas Kincade, Stampscapes,etc.) I just like to do a monochromatic card and not color it at all. (That I CAN do! LOL!) Other times, I've just colored in specific parts, such as lamps, windows, etc. I've found that watercoloring seems to work better for some scenery stamps as markers can tend to be a bit too bold and look strange. (not always, though.)

Those are exactly the type of images I used to stay away from! Since I discovered Prismacolor pencils, that's changed! Now that's about the only kind I do buy! I now love coloring!

I love to color with my Prismacolor pencils and gamsol so I tend to buy mostly outline stamps. Big, small, it doesn't matter. When I tend to stay away from are the stamps with lots of solid areas. I can't get a good image when I stamp them, unless I emboss them.

I don't have any Thomas Kinkade stamps, but I'm thinking about it.

Default Very fine detail line images for me

I love to color-in images. Not the greatest at it but I enjoy the process. I will stay away from the very fine line drawing stamps as I find that for me I almost always can't do them justice - even after embossing the lines to prevent spread and splotching. For example I have a lovely stamp of a Maryland light house that no matter what I do - a little water color here and there or with pencils the color always looks like an after thought not an enhancement. So now I just emboss that image in solid black and use mostly for male thank you cards and such.

Detail coloring and water coloring takes patience and practice. I am certain I can improve in time but for now will be quite happy to color in the simple like shapes like the Holiday Hedgehogs from SU etc

I'm brave - I'll try almost anything. I figure the only way I can get better is too try new things. With that said, I won't be buying the Kincade stamps as they are not my style but I do love to watercolor so most of my stamps are the open ones like the card sample.

That's funny, because I *love* to color and pretty much ONLY buy line stamps!! There are so many different media to color with, you just have to find what you're comfortable with!!

I LOVE to color! So I generally get drawn to images that have a lot of space to work with. I tend to stay away from solid images because I love to color. Although the stamps from Unity are fantastic and they have some solid images that I LOVE!

I am always in the practice mode. I recently just blended sky and ground, very safe in my recent Does my Saddle Make Me Look Fat? card. I am sometimes satisfied with bright colors and often neglect the blending.

I have also been intimidated by the Thomas Kinkaid stamps. I did, however, purchase a small one to see how it goes. I figure if it looks really bad, I won't have invested too much time and money into it.

Naaaah. I never shy away from a stamp I love! If I loves it, it must be mine. I will pet it, and woo it, and eventually, coax something purdee from paper using it! It might take me a bit, but, oh, no, I could not shy away or leave it lonely, no never!

That is SOOOOO me! I must've failed Kindergarten.

Anyways, I avoid elegant stamps because I just don't do "pretty" or "elegant" well.

This thread convinced me that I needed to pull out that Thomas Kinkade stamp. Here's the result of my first attempt -- http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...0&ppuser=72594 I still need lots of practice, but I think now I'm not quite as intimidated. There may be more TK in my future. LOL!

I guess the moral is: just jump right in and give it a go!

Well, I bought some prismacolor pencils and have tried the goo gone method and my results have been "blotchy". I've read and reread the tutorial, and I try the same image with large coloring areas, trying to improve on it, but I'm really getting frustrated. Does the type of paper make a difference? I've been using SU WW. Should I be using something else? Anybody have a hint?

I just use Georgia Pacific white that I get at Wal-Mart for about $5-$6 a ream. It seems to work well.

When I see something I love, I forget that I don't have the skills to use it well. I go into "buying mode" where all brain cells lose function!!

Then I get it and wonder what the heck I was thinking.

Then I practice. Sometimes I pull it off and sometimes I don't!

I don't mess with solid images too much. And I have roses in winter here looking for a new home because I cannot coax something lovely out of it for the life of me. *gives RIW a dirty look*

I also don't pull off vintage/shabby type looks. I like them bunches, but mine always look messy/spastic.

What I have found that works are the paper snips (I use the cutterbee ones- yellow). They work GREAT!

My favorite paper for coloring images with - I don't mind so much if I goof up with it, KWIM? It's much ouchier if I've spent $5-6 on 40 sheets of cardstock than the same amount on 250 sheets!

Just try it! I find that, with a little bit of patience, I can almost always get good results. Maybe not as great as some of the SCS ladies, but good enough that I impress myself!

What do you have to lose? It's so much fun to color images like that. And usually I find that my coloring and shading is great, I just need some more practice at coming up with good color combinations.

Are you a member of WishRAK? If not, you could join and submit some wishes for images like these so that you can practice without investing too much $$$. You might find that you're better at coloring than you think you are

I love to color with watercolor pencils and crayons and would like to try the gamasol technique but I have had no luck finding gamasol. Where can I purchase? Is it marketed under a different name?

Sounds interesting
It's usually hanging, rather than on the shelf by the bit spray bottle of goo gone. That I had no trouble getting. I read about it and had not been successful finding gamsol, so I got that instead.
