I attended a stamp convention this last weekend and thought I'd try a couple of the techniques that I learned. I inked the poppy image with Marvy pens, stamped, and then used a watercolor brush to spread the color through the leaves, added orange Tombow marker to the flower centers and spread the color on the petals with the wet brush. The second technique was to color the embossed background with sponge daubers and pigment ink.
