How to color your images without markers, or water paints.

I love to color my stamped images. My favorite to color them is with water based dye ink and a water brush. I have gotten really accustom to created beautiful shades this way. But no today!

Today, we are digging into our stash, and we are going to paper piece our stamped image for coloring. 

This is fun and really does not take much more time, perhaps even less that watercoloring does. 
This cute images was stamped 4 times on,White daisy for the base, sweet safari for the skirt, scrap for the boots and jacket, and Sundance for the hair.  Fussy cut each small area out, add some gold shimmer brush for highlights in the hair and sun and you're good. 

I did come in with some peach dye based ink for some skin tone and to color the pot and flower. Opps I cocould't stay away from watercoloring after all.
