Creative Coloring with Erum: Stamp Focus: Weekend Doodles

by Erum Tasneem

Hi there! Erum here today and I have FOUR cards to share with you plus a video featuring the Weekend Doodles Stamp Set.

Altenew Weekend Doodles Stamp Set | Erum Tsneem | @pr0digy0This is such a fun stamp set and I had a blast creating these cards for you. Let's begin with the first card.

Card 1

Altenew Weekend Doodles Stamp Set | Erum Tsneem | @pr0digy0I started by heat embossing one of the images from the Weekend Doodles Stamp Set in Pure White Embossing Powder on watercolor cardstock. Next, I used the Watercolor Brush Markers in Purple Wine and Desert Night to color the image. I applied a bit of color directly from the markers and then spritz the image with water, liberally.

Card 2

I was bummed that I didn't film it so I will definitely be doing a no-line watercoloring video in the near future using the Weekend Doodles Stamp Set.  I stamped this in Limeade Ink and used a mix of greens and browns from both the Watercolor Brush Markers and the Watercolor 36 Pan Set.

Card 3

Altenew Weekend Doodles Stamp Set | Erum Tsneem | @pr0digy0For the card pictured above, I used Permanent Black Ink to stamp the image and used Artist Markers in Grapevine, Ruby, Red Velvet, and Crimson to color the flowers. And, for the leaves, I used the Green Fields Set of Artist Markers. For the flower center, I used the Summer Afternoon Set of Artist Markers.

Card 4

Altenew Weekend Doodles Stamp Set | Erum Tsneem | @pr0digy0I finally got my hands on toned gray paper by Strathmore! I stamped the image with Embossing Ink and colored the images with Prismacolor Pencils.

I hope you enjoyed today's post which is full of inspiration on how to use your Weekend Doodles Stamp Set. There is SO MUCH MORE that you can do with this set. Tag Altenew (or use the hashtag #Altenew) when you do share your creations on social media!

That's all from my side. Thank you for stopping by!
