This sweet face is on the list of stamps to retire on May 31st. I’ll be keeping Kind Koala in my permanent collection:
- Stamps: Kind Koala (retiring 5/31/16)
- Color Palette: Basic Black, Smoky Slate, Blushing Bride, Daffodil Delight
- Accessories: Neutrals Designer Series Paper (DSP) pack, Watercolor paper, Aquapainter, White Perfect Accents, Stampin’ Dimensionals, Sharpie, Wink of Stella
For the most satisfying results, you really need to use Watercolor paper with the Aquapainter to color a larger image like the Koala. Watercolor paper allows you to move the color around, to add and even subtract color. I find I can get acceptable results on Whisper White if I’m working with small images, but if you work the color too much the finish of the paper will start to get rough. The Watercolor paper is much more forgiving.
I used a yellow Sharpie to color the White Perfect Accent. It did the job, but the more I look at it the more I think it needs to be a different color. Or perhaps it just needs to be another COLOUR. That may be my problem right there.
Bring this sweet little face into your life right HERE.

I love the Koala stamp too. Your card is so cute and has such soft colors…..perfect.
Thanks, Barbara. Koala lend themselves to soft and cute, don’t they?
I love your little card. Maybe the flower beds to be a color that pops. Blue, purple, red. Something that will contrast a little more than the pink. I like your coloring on the water color paper with the koala. TFS
Thank you, Jerilee. I will have to try again with a brighter color – you might have hit on the solution!
Really sweet card. I think I might need to get my colouring pens out now!
Thanks! I find colouring to be very relaxing – as long as I’m not in a rush to finish. I hope you enjoy some time to colour!
Thanks – I appreciate your taking the time to say so!
