Earlier this week, the Playtime with Paper team met for our quarterly meeting. Part of the meeting focused on practicing different coloring techniques. One technique was to use Blender Pens with ink pads for coloring and shading. The Honeybee Home gift tag was the end product. When learning to color with Blender Pens, I recommend selecting a simple design and limiting the number of ink colors. This helps prevent becoming overwhelmed! By using the elements from the Honeybee Home Stamp Set, it was easy to practice coloring and shading. And since I am a fan of making gift tags, using the Tailor Made Tags to cut a base for the images made it a quick project to complete. Below is the list of materials and a video with coloring tips plus tag assembly.
