I know we are the Stamp Review Crew and normally we focus on one stamp set at a time but this hop I wanted to focus on a DSP in the 2017 Sale-a-bration line up (pun intended, Ha!), Inside the Lines Designer Series Paper.

This is a 12"x12" DSP that you can colour in yourself. There are four designs and you get 3 of each design in a pack.  And the designs lend themselves to be coloured with the new and fabulous Stampin' Up! Watercolor Pencils.

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen me playing around with this DSP last week.  I was having a bit of a practice with the Watercolour pencils before I got stuck into my project for today.

I think I've picked the most detailed design of all the four designs in the Inside the Lines DSP pack and I'm not going to lie and say that this has been a quick project because this has taken me about 25+ hours, on and off throughout the week, mostly after dinner while watching TV to colour it in. Lucky I love it otherwise I probably would have stopped after the first night.

I had originally thought to cut out a section of the DSP and then turn it into a card but after all that work and effort that I put into colouring it in I couldn't bring myself to cut it up. It was just too pretty! I love the sheet of DSP in the beautiful dark frame. The contrast of the frame with the colours in the DSP is gorgeous and makes for a beautiful decor piece in your home.

To colour it in I laid down a little bit of colour in each flower or leaf and then used the Aqua painter to pull the colour out and to give it that water colour look. The water colour pencils are really so easy to use. Make sure when using the Aqua painter on the DSP not to use too much water otherwise the colour would just pool everywhere on the page. I found the best was to have as dry a brush you could have. Basically the brush was just damp and that worked the best for me.

Check out this clip from Stampin' Up! on other fabulous ways you can colour the Inside the Lines DSP.  There are lots of different ways you can colour this DSP. You are only limited by your imagination.

I hope that I've inspired you today with the Inside the Lines DSP. Remember to get this DSP you need to spend $90 AUD with me on any Stampin' Up! products (not including P&H) and the Inside the Lines DSP (#143830) is all yours for FREE!

Next up is the fabulous and fellow Artisan team member, Tanya Boser.
