An Impromtu Poll

I've been working on another fun project but before I get to that, I want to hear from you.

Do you enjoy digi stamps?  If so, how do you use them?  If you print and then color them, what is your favorite medium or media with which you color them?

Now, for my confession.  I enjoy coloring. 

Before our huge road trip this summer, I printed several digi stamps on plain white cardstock and packed them up with a small assortment of colored pencils.  Hey, I may not be able to take my KNK and all my creative stuff with me but I was not about to go through complete withdrawl--especially not cold turkey.  Hahahaha!

Anyway, these stamps have been sitting here and I was thinking of what I could do to use them up quickly and easily.  And that is how the grand old cutter came into play.  You'll have to come back tomorrow when I hope to have pictures of them for you.

Until then, I look forward to your comments and may your creative time be filled with bliss!

I like printing digi stamps and coloring them with Copic Markers. Unfortunately, my coloring/blending isn't very good. :-(

I love to colour too - I have watercolour pencils - I print a bunch
- actually I print them to the size I need for a card - so I take them with me everywhere from the rv to my Mum's when I am there for her meals
I love the brushes with self contained water makes it so much easier to take and go - I too cannot be without something creative to do-
secret if I really colour one well I bring it home and scan it so it can be used over again
Some of my digi I do import and colour on the computer but it is more fun to hand colour them.

I have used them a few times on cards and colour with pencils or markers. Like Esther, I am also not very good at colouring LOL

I don't do cards. I scrapbook. I have digi stamps, but prefer cutting files.

I'm like Esther, I like digi stamps and coloring them with my copic markers but I am not great at it, still working on my blending technique...lol

I often print digi stamp on mat photo paper and color them with my copic marker when I am on the road or at the cottage. I collect many of them and then just have to cut them to make quick cards or many other projects.

I have to complete my comment. I would love cutting outline for my stamps. It would sometime be much prettier than just cutting an oval and much less work than cutting it by hand.

I've tried markers, colored pencils, and watercolor pencils. Until I have time to really work on technique, the watercolor pencils are my preference. At one point I had a take-along kit ready for the times I;d sit through my kids' medical appointments, especially the orthodontist. The watercolor pencils plus a loaded waterbrush worked great.
