Stamp in colour

Quick Cards Magazine - - Fixes -

I am new to card mak­ing and have been sent a few rub­ber stamps by my aun­tie, some of which I would like to colour. What can I use? I can’t af­ford any­thing very ex­pen­sive, though. Sue Park, Wi­gan

Kitty: There are so many dif­fer­ent medi­ums you can use to colour stamped im­ages. There are al­co­hol mark­ers, pens (the Faber Castell In­dian Ink pens be­low are avail­able from www. hob­by­craft.co.uk) paints, inks, pen­cils and so much more. Al­co­hol mark­ers are great to use; how­ever, they are quite ex­pen­sive when you first start out. I would rec­om­mend get­ting a pack of wa­ter­colour paints or pen­cils to build up colour and cre­ate shadow ef­fects. You can pick these up from most art shops and dis­count stores like The Works. If you en­joy it you can give some other medi­ums a try.

There’s a wide range of colour­ing pens, pen­cils and inks to suit ev­ery bud­get
