Stampscapes 101: Video 294. Speed Coloring

I have a hard time leaving a bunch of unfinished compositions/stamp sketches on my table so I decided that I would try and finish all 6 in a mass production style. All scenes except for one were finished with the same color scheme but the one that wasn’t just didn’t have as many colors as the rest. It was interesting working in this manner albeit a little repetitive. While this video isn’t short, each scene averaged about 15 minutes to complete which is fairly quick considering the number of inks used on each scene. Now I want to embellish these scenes!

    Very interesting starting with base layer of blue ! I have never really thought of that possibility before. Certainly makes a lot of sense.
    Always pick up new ideas watching your videos. Also love the way you talk thru your steps of adding color and why you do so. I am not new to using color. I have never added as many layers to a card but you are inspiring me to maybe go a bit further with the inking!
