Cut and color when needed

Good Morning! In the past I have colored and cut out tons of flowers. I never seem to have the color I need cut out. With this set I decided to do things different I stamped all the images in black stazon and cut them. Now when I need the images I can quickly color to match my project. See the pictures:) I love doing it this way I hope you will too.
Have a great day
Thanks for stopping by!

What a great idea! I've never used my Stampin' Spots to color images that way--I'll have to try it.

Gorgeous card! Love the color combo. Did you apply the spot directly to paper or did you use a sponge. Beautiful effect. Thanks for sharing!

Oh, my gosh, what a fantastic idea to do a whole sheet! Brilliant! I love the Apricot and Regal Rose, too. Great way to get the show on the road here, Dee!

To answer Dorothy's question: I apply the spot directly to the paper. You can let the ink dry and apply 2-3 more times and the colors get darker and richer. I drink a lot of caffine so I have to cut early in the morning or late at night. I really like being able to cut them all out and color them later when I need them.

Absolutely brilliant. I thought I had "homemade primas" down to a science, but I see that your genius has added immensely to the art! ;0) Love love love love love your ideas. Thanks SO much for saving me from the rut of another blue card to match those 100 blue primas. lol :0) Mel
