This beautiful front door image just begs to be colored, but sometimes we just don’t have time or only want to create a very simple card. I thought that by using the Triple Time Stamping Technique and centering the door, I could create a nice card quickly. I did end up coloring the door with a Water Painter Brush and Merry Merlot ink to make the door stand out. Any coloring medium would work, Stampin’ Blends, Stampin’ Write Markers, Colored Pencils etc… But, with just a couple of quick flicks of the brush the door has color. If you don’t have a Water Painter Brush, a simple paint brush works too. Just squeeze the lid of the ink pad to transfer a bit of ink to the inside of the lid, wet the brush, and then pick up the paint with the brush. Experiment a bit to see how much water is needed on the brush to get the right depth of color.
