truly, this new Sitting Here Stamp Set is better than an adult coloring book because when you are finished coloring, you can cut them out and make cards!…Lots and Lots of Cards, haha…
Anyway, I was having a blast this morning coloring with my Stampin-n-Write Markers, and this new “Sitting Here” Stamp Set. I grabbed some scrap paper, stamped the images and colored all morning. I love the little cushions that come in the set and the beautiful deck rocker because it’s my favorite thing to do, sit out on our deck surrounded by beautiful flowers and fresh air….so anyway, here is what I created with all of my little pieces this morning:
The first one I stamped on Tip Top Taupe card stock with Soft Suede ink, then you can color the rocker in with a wet Aqua Painter, it will pick up the ink and move it around for you.
I used watercolor paper to stamp the basket, dog, and the pillows, and then used my inkpad lids and aqua painter for the base coats, and then added highlights with my markers.
I love the little doggy and basket too, we used to have an Australian Cattle dog named Jack, he was two tone gray and he loved to curl up like this and sleep, so I used my Smoky Slate and my White Gel pen to create him.
For the seat on the rocker I used my Tempting Turquoise Marker and White Gel Pen.
and then we had to do the cat!…haha…so this one is all stamped on watercolor paper so that I could add a bit of a wash to the background, Marina Mist at the top and Smoky Slate at the bottom. Then I used Soft Suede, Crushed Curry, Flirty Flamingo, Cucumber Crush and Sweet Sugarplum to color in the images.
I cut out the pillows and the cat, and used glue dots to add them over the chair for just a bit of depth.
Do you like the vines hanging down? can you guess what stamp set they are from? Hint – they are upside down.

Here is a little close up for you. For the round cushion I used Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum markers and just blended them, for the square pillow, same thing and added crushed curry, cucumber crush and tempting turquoise.
My kitty is done the same as the dog, in Smoky Slate and my White Gel pen for his paws.
Anyway, that was my fun morning. It’s a long weekend up here in Canada and we had a bunch of wood delivered…..it’s time to put in our vegi garden, so I’ll be getting dirty all weekend….hope you are doing something fun this weekend too…..
Thanks so much for visiting me today, I hope you enjoyed the projects.
