Card Making & Clip Art Images

Here are a few cards from my last shipment in which I've used pre-colored images. While I do sometimes like to color stamped images at other times I just want to "dive-in" to making cards and at those times coloring suddenly feels tedious. Besides, I like to mix it up to keep it interesting and fun from a creative standpoint. I wonder... if creativity becomes a predictable routine (using the sames colors, techniques, layouts over and over again) is it still creative? :)

As a graphic designer I have managed to amass quite a lot of clipart over the years and more recently I have started to view clip art from the card maker's perspective and I have managed to find some great images to use. So if you enjoy making cards but are not inclined to "coloring" it may be something to consider.

Happy Crafting Everyone!

I feel the exact same way. Sometimes I like to use the clipart as my inspiration pulling the paper colors from what colors are in the clipart instead of the other way of coloring the picture to match. I especially do this with man cards! great job on your pup cards!!
