Ok I'll admit it. I was terrified of these stamps. I thought all that detail it would be impossible to color. Well yesterday I spent the day with online friends including Asela Hopkins and she has all the Thomas Kinkade stamps. She let me play.
She told me to just color with markers and not to try to color each blade of grass or flower or anything, just swipe color on... I tried it and it worked! Allt he shading is there in the stamped imageso it was easy to color!
Oh another trick is to stamp in gray, brown or dark green, NOT black. Apparently the black is too bold. I stamped this in timber brown stazon. (stazon worked best for me)

Well done! It's easy, isn't it- just have to take the step and give it a try!
I love your card- the colours are beautiful.
