  1. My favourite way to colour images is watercolour but I tend to use Copics or pencil crayons as I can control them more and the cardstock is easier to fussy cut.

  2. This is such a wonderful card!! My favorite way to color is using copic Markers and distress inks, I love making cards( with LawnFawn stamp sets of course!!) Thanks for sharing!!!

  3. I struggle with water-colour, so my go-to colouring mediums are pencils AND my distress markers. Depending on the image, I may use a fusion of both! Thank you for the fabulous inspiration!

  4. Awesome card & sweet little elephant & birdie! I am starting to use THoltz Distress Markers to color with. I am intrigued with ZIG watercolor markers videos and think I would like to try them too.

  5. I LOVE this elephant card! The colors are amazing! My favorite coloring media are copic markers because of their bright, bold color saturation. Colored pencils and pastel chalk are also fun to work with, although I just don't use them enough for cards. Maybe this is the time to start?

  6. I love to color with Copics and Watercolor and have learned a lot from all the talented bloggers who post videos. Love the elephant on this sweet card!

  7. Love watercolor and alcohol markers, I use ShinHan Twin Touch markers and have a few of the Copic markers, happily they work well together. We have a new baby boy in the family and that lovely card gave me a few ideas.

  8. I love watching you watercolor, I need all the help I can get. Lol! At present my favorite is watercolor but I am a novice and I find it very relaxing!

  9. This is really a cute card.♥ Thank you Lizzy for sharing us your inspiration.
    I'm always color my stamped images with my copics.

  10. Just got the Elphie selfie set a couple of days ago. Love that elephant!! I usually use copics or colored pencils, really haven't done much water coloring might have to give it a try!!

  11. Love My favorite has always been watercolor pencils whether I use them dry or with a waterbrush. Maybe one day I will get the hang of copics but right now it is not working. LOL

  12. I don't have a favorite medium per se, I just go with my gut feeling for each project 😉 I am currently experimenting with color pencils but it varies from project to project! Thanks for sharing!

  13. Such an adorable card! I like to use different colouring mediums. Right now I'm trying to get acquainted with my very first Copics and am also trying to use my Zigs more.

  14. Love your very sweet card!!!!
    I enjoy colouring with my GraphIt markers and recently I got a few colouring pencils that I'm learning how to use and enjoy very much!!!!! Enjoyed colouring when I was a little girl and up to today I still love doing it!!!!

  15. If I want to make something really special, I will spend hours using my Copics….If I want something faster, I pull out my watercolors. And if I'm just coloring to color, I pull out my pencils. I understand it lowers your blood pressure so I'm all in! Thanks for the inspiration. I have to say, Lawn Fawn has the cutest small images…I have so many of your stamp sets

  16. Cute card, just inspired the baby card I need to make 🙂 I am addicted to using Distress Inks and an aquabrush, I have Jenn Shurkus to blame for teaching me how to do this, I have been hooked ever since.. Clairex

  17. Lizzy – thanks for sharing this! I need to get back to watercoloring (I use distress ink, too) … my favorite way to color at the moment is with my new colored pencils!

  18. Colored pencils are my favorite right now. I have many copics but I never do them justice. I have better control with watercolor pencils

  19. This is a super cute card. I love the Elphie Selphie stamp set. I usually use my water color crayons for coloring images. I will try your technique with my distress markers for a medium.

  20. Such a cute card! That elephant is so adorable.

    My favourite way to colour stamped images is with watercolour pencils. I really enjoy using them. I’ve actually not yet tried any kind of markers, and it’s definitely something I’d like to give a go sometime.

    Thanks for the chance to win!

  21. Dreamy card! Such an adorable little elephant and the blending is superb!
    My favourite way to colour stamped images is to use linen cardstock as a base and use children's colouring pencils on the top! the result is that the image looks really textured.

  22. I love to color with Copic markers. I am still learning but I am getting really good with blending in some of the color families. I am currently dabbling in watercoloring as well and am liking the results but am still partial to Copic markers.

  23. I use color pencils. I had them from art classes in college, oh sooo long ago. So when i discovered Lawn Fawn Die Cutting, I wasn't ready to make the Copic plunge and used what I had on hand.

  24. Though I own more Copics than I care to admit, I love to water color best. Lizzy did a great job on this card, but would love to know the kind of paper she used to water color. I noticed it was smooth versus the rough normal water color paper.

  25. Keep the cute stamps coming! I have a tradition of using them on my (soon to be 15 year old) daughter's cards. Her favorite one to date is the light up unicorn for Christmas! 😁 I colored her with Copics, which is often my go do with your images, though I don't know why. I like to color with almost all media, but somehow Lawn Fawn images always make me reach for my copics! 😁

  26. Such a darling card! I got the elphie selphie card to do baby cards. That's really how I saw it. It has so many uses. I know we're going to start seeing it used everywhere in many different ways. Jil

  27. You guys certainly have an abundance of adorable images to color! I generally gravitate toward Copics, but my mission this month is to work with Zigs and colored pencils a bit more.

  28. The easiest medium for me to use to color is colored pencils. But i really like the look of markers and water color.

  29. I love this technique, but I don't have any distress markers. I have been using mostly Crayola markers, and have gotten quite adventurous mixing my own colors. I scribble them onto a white plate and pick up the color with a damp brush!..Thanks for sharing, and for a chance to win!

  30. I have always shied away from coloring but when a friend showed me a Lawn Fawn set and I discovered your adorable images and videos, I was hooked. I recently bought a handful of Copics and have been practicing on my Lawn Fawn mermaid images. I'm finding that I enjoy coloring and though I have a ways to go before I see improvement, I am inspired by your blog and so many others.

  31. Such a sweet card, thank you for sharing the video! I love coloring with copic markers, so much fun blending and shading the colors.

  32. Such a sweet card. It is hard to pick a favorite medium to color with!! I love my Zig Clean Color Markers, colored pencils and my spectrum noir markers!! thanks for the chance to win!!

  33. I always love Lawn Fawn images when it comes to coloring, and my favorite coloring technique is with dye markers. Still learning and improving, but I love it

  34. Very cute! I like using Distress Inks as watercolors, assuming I can remember to use the right kind of ink for the stamp that won't bleed…

  35. I love to use watercolor for stamped images…ranging from distress inks, watercolor pencils to water-based markers. Lawn Fawn's designs are perfect for this technique, as well as being so cute.

  36. Very new to card making so still in my safe zone using watercolours, however I now use distress inks as well as my old art supplies. I have started to collect copic markers but I'm waiting until I have enough before trying them out.

  37. My favorite way to color stamped images is with copics, I practice a lot to get the blending down. Your card is so sweet. I LOVE Lawn Fawn products.

  38. I love how versatile the Elfie Selfie set is! So cute! My favorite ways to color stamped images is with Alcohol Markers and Distress Ink Watercoloring. I don't yet own any Lawn Fawn stamps, so I'm super excited for this giveaway–plus my Birthday is coming in April! Thank you for the opportunity to win!

  39. I have currently been using my zig watercolor markers to color in most of my stamping images. I just bought all the new distress inks and am going to try those next!

  40. My go to marker was Copic's, but now I am starting to collect Shin Han's! My store is out of several of your newest stamps so once they become available I will be even more excited to kick off some coloring!!

  41. I brought out my colored pencils today and enjoyed coloring with them, The card is lovely. The little elephants are darling. Perfect for a baby announcement!

  42. I love to see baby elephants used on welcoming a new baby into the world. They bring a smile to the moms' face. Your card is just lovely & your colouring is as well.

  48. So, so very cute stamp set – Elphie Selfie. I love, love, love Lawn Fawn. It is my favorite company! You guys are so awesome. My favorite way to color stamped images is emboss resist. THANKS, DENISE

  49. Super cute card, beautiful coloring! I love using my distress mini inkpads and my Zig markers together to watercolor, my favorite way to color. I just got the full Prismacolor pencil set and I look forward to getting some practice with them, especially on Kraft. I don't have alcohol markers.

  50. I go through phases of color usage. Copic, pencils, acrylic, zig markers, tombow, and more. I’ve just got to say watercolor is my favorite.

  51. I love using colored pencils to color images but loved the way you used the distress markers as watercolors. Can't wait to try it with the markers I have. I love the adorable critter stamps on your card. Thanks for some great ideas.

  52. I like coloring mostly with colored pencils (especially inktense) and watercoloring with my distress inks.

    I just bought my first Lawn Fawn set. I love it, and now I am just wondering why it took me so long.

  53. What an adorarable card! I'm not very good at coloring so I try to use stamps to get color. I try with Zigs and use some Distress inks. I have some Copics but they are beyond my skill set for now

  54. My favorite way currently is to use prismacolor pencils and gamsol. Just getting started with copic markers and using them. My 12 and 10 year olds think that Lawn Fawn stamps are the best and use them regularly.

  55. Water Colors are my favorite at home type of coloring! It makes me FEEL LIKE at artist! LOL SWEET BABY CARD TOO!!!! One of my favorite types of cards to make! 😉

  56. super cute- love the new Elfphie Selfie & all the new sets!! my fave is my copics by far, but i just learned an amazing technique from Jennifer McGuire to color with tombo markers and blend with a Wink of Stella on smooth bristol- the shimmer is totally outrageous! Everyone needs to try it 🙂

  57. Such a cute baby card. I am in a Zig Clean Color Marker lovefest right now. But I am anxiously waiting to try Tim Holtz's Oxide inks on my backgrounds. Happy coloring.

  58. My favorite way to color,hmmmm, well it really depends on my mood, I like to color with copic, colored pencils, water coloring, and distress inks. Thanks soooo much for sharing!!!!! ;):);):);)

  59. Great card! Currently, I'm prefer Copic markers, however, I'm trying to push myself to use pencils or watercolor. This video is great to show me a different way of using my distress markers (that I rarely use!)

  60. Such a sweet card! Right now, I typically colour my stamped images with watercoloring. I've been trying coloured pencils, but my stash is pretty crappy :S

  61. Well, prior to the challenge I was using water color pencils and markers (no blending). However, I was recently introduced to Copics and yesterday I colored with Bic Mark Its. I think Copics are fast becoming a favorite!

  62. my favourite colouring medium is probably Copics, although Distress Markers are getting there. Also I should really use my PrismaColour pencils more!

  63. Just precious Lizzy. My fav. way to colour stamped images right now is using Zigs but I am learning how to use my Copics and THAT is what I am really aiming to ace!

  64. I have lots of fun ways to color. I've been coloring my whole life but didn't get my first adult coloring book until 1981. I have some Copics but I don't quite know how to use them like my friends do. I need classes so I can do the fun things I see others do. I love crayons and being a preschool sub I can vouch for Crayola being the best crayons. I also love colored pencils and I have some water color pencils from grade school. I love markers and I have quite a few different kinds. What I don't like about markers or some markers is the cap colors don't match the marker colors. I have what looks like a florescent yellow marker by the pen cap but when you use it, it is a dark yellow color, a brownish yellow color to be more specific. That really cracks my cookies! Another marker I have is called Rose but it's more red then pink and the cap looks more pink then red. Last but not least is water colors and I have some faves. I have a whole bunch of paint brushes and I just love to color and create with them. The problem is I am not always where there is water and I can paint so I am usually using my colored pencils, crayons, and markers.
    What a cute card you made! It even has my favorite color in it that most people don't use, yellow. 10 extra points for you ! LOL Thanks for letting us get a chance to win something. I love Lawn Fawn stamps!

  65. My current favorite medium would be copics. I'm late to the game but I am starting to get better at color blending and it's really exciting to have my stamped images look like they have depth.

  66. I love my watercolours, I've been using Distress Markers ang Zig clean color real brush markers for a while, and just got all the Distress Inks and Reinkers this winter. I also recently got the full set of Polychromos that I'm practising with, and should be getting my first set of Copics on Monday (hasn't stopped me from stalking the tracking – seeing if just MAYBE they'd get here before the weekend) 😁 Can you tell I love colouring?

  67. Up to this point, Copics have been my coloring medium of choice. I got Zigs for Christmas, but I haven't had the opportunity to break them out yet…

  68. The little Elphie is so adorable!!
    My favorite way to color stamped images is with watercolor, either Distress Inks or watercolor pencils.

  69. Perfect images and colors for your card! I'm currently enjoying using watercolors the most. I use a bit of everything except Copics. Can't justify the expense in our budget, so make do with other mediums.

  70. I wish that I were adept at using Copic markers because they are my favorite coloring tools. Since I am not that good with Copics, my favorite coloring tool is Distress inks. No skill is needed. I blend and smoosh and use them to watercolor. The colors are gorgeous and they always look great. Donna C

  75. My favorite coloring medium is still copics. I do love distress inks but I haven't invested in many of the distress markers so I tend to use my distress more for backgrounds.

  76. Hello,Colored pencils are my ultimate go to for coloring in stamped images. I also like to use watercolor pencils. I don't have many types of markers, but if I did I would use those as well. ove the adorable baby card, thanks for the video and the chance to win.

  87. I like using prismacolored pencils and spectrum noir markers and aqua markers. Trying to perfect each. So practice practice. Love your cards and of course stamps!! Awesomeness!!

  93. I like to use the Zig markers. Just started using the watercolor pencils

  104. Since getting my MISTI, whenever I get a new stamp and die set – I make a die template and set up my stamps on the misti I die cut at least 20 of each image and them stamp them until I'm ready to use them. I use a tool organizer to keep all of my stamped die cuts – that way I can grab the one I need and color it (usually with my copics). Saves me so-o-o much time to do this!

  115. Super cuteness!!! Right now since I'm still learning with my colored pencils and markers, I'd say colored pencils, since blending and shading is a bit easier with the use of gamosol!
