There's nothing like the summertime to create memories... and there's nothing like a graduation to flood those memory banks!  This image from the Heartland stamp set is one of my favorites of all time as it is so reminiscent of days gone by with my fifteen year old.  It seems like yesterday that I was following him around with my camera in hand taking similar pictures.  So for today's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop, it is my intention to inspire you to start coloring some memories of your own for a graduate you have in your life.

But first, let me tell you how wonderful it is to be a part of Kylie's Demonstrator Training Support Program.  This group provides such an invaluable amount of training which helps demonstrators in this group with their Stampin' Up!® businesses.  We receive training not only from Kylie, but her amazing guest speakers - many of whom are top global Stampin' Up!® Demonstrators - and the members themselves.  There is nothing like being inspired to do great things!

And now, let's get on with today's card!  This card was one of three that was created one afternoon last week during one of our summer rains.  There's nothing like a rainy afternoon to get you wanting to color!


Heartland Graduate for Kylie's Demonstrator Training Blog Hop - June 2019 | One image - Three different Coloring Techniques | Nature's INKspirations by Angie McKenzie

The image was stamped on Shimmery White cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  The coloring was done with Night of Navy, Crumb Cake and Old Olive Blends Markers.  The skin tone was not colored so that the recipient could imagine the tones themselves...  The bottom of the foot had to be colored though as most would have probably matched the color of the ground underfoot.

The Shimmery White cardstock was originally cut to fit a full size card front, so it was cut down to fit this 4-1/4" square card.  The sentiment from Itty Bitty Birthdays was also stamped in Memento ink onto a scrap of Crumb Cake cardstock which was adhered to the colored layer with liquid glue.  The Braided Linen Trim was wrapped around this finished layer two separate times and adhered with Tear & Tape Adhesive before it was adhered to the card base with liquid glue.

The inside was created to compliment the card front.  The image was centered and stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  The sentiments from Itty Bitty Greetings were stamped  onto Crumb Cake cardstock scraps.  The lower 4" square panel allows plenty of room for a sweet note and signatures.
