Fuzzy Colors with a twist
I enjoy using my stipples brushes so I have them handy at all times. Stipple brushes come in all sizes and shapes from kids' versions to artist grade. I have them all! I can say it enough, "Stipple brushes are a stamper's best friend!" They are good for techniques like Fuzzy colors, adding a touch of color and best of all hiding smudges.
Now what I did different here from my normal Fuzzy Colors technique. I call this
FUZZY COLORS with a Twist!

1. Stamp Eiffel Tower with Staz-On Black ink pad.
2. Create a mask by stamping tower on Post-It Note.
3. Place mask over stamped image.
4. Using a medium stipple brush add fuzzy color around the masked image with Adirondack Butterscotch ink to start. Add Adirondack Lettuce in other areas and last Adirondack Cranberry.
5. Leave some areas without color just for a little more depth in your project.
6. Remove Post-It note mask to reveal the Fuzzy Color effect.
