DIY Card with Inside the Lines - a Quick Coloring Technique

If fussy coloring is not your style, then this DIY Card with Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper - a Quick Coloring Technique might be just the ticket for you!

If you remember the blog post last Tuesday  http://www.sandilovesstamping.com/2017/01/diy-5-minute-card-with-no-coloring-inside-the-lines.html we used that wonderful Designer Series Paper that you can get FREE during Sale-a-bration when you  purchase $50 in Stampin'Up! product. In that post we didn't use any color at all.

Today, we're going to use a very quick coloring technique that is very easy and can be used to create designer paper to match any cardstock base that you need. Check out this card:

We are using the new Sponge Brayer with the same color ink as the card base (Watermelon Wonder). The coloring with the brayer goes very quickly and you can make the color as deep or as light as you need.
