Just Add Color - MFT July Release

Hello friends!  It's time for this month's "Just Add Color" feature from My Favorite Things!  This is one of my favorite features.  I love coloring and find it so relaxing.

I colored up a few of the stamp sets from this month's release and I'm simply going to share them with you along with all the colors that I used.  I'm no coloring expert and I usually just go with my gut when choosing colors, but I hope that this will help some of you when you're looking to color your own images.

For every set, I stamped my images with Copic friendly Black Ink onto some Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 110lb Card Stock and used the coordinating dies to cut them out.  I've listed the following Stamp Sets in this order: 1) BB Saddle Up & Celebrate, 2) The Greatest Show, 3) Safari Friends, and 4) Playful Peacocks
