How adorable is he? I colored him with some re-inker in my Fine Tip Glue Pen! I got this idea from the fabulous Sara Douglass, Stampin’ Up! CEO. Let’s get started!

All you need for this technique of coloring with your Fine Tip Glue Pen is the glue and the color of your choice in Ink Refills! I have a few bottles of Fine Tip Glue so to not make a big batch, I poured as much as I could into the other 2 bottles. There was maybe 1/3 of the bottle left and I did 10 drips of Cucumber Crush and it was BRIGHT! I ended up adding some glue back to it. I would go with maybe 3-5 drops and then add more if you want a bolder color! You can always add more but you can’t take it out! 🙂 Shake well and then color with the fine tip! It’s super fun and simple because you are literally coloring with the fine tip and can get into small spaces too!

For this card, I stamped the toad from the You’re Sublime Stamp Set in Basic Gray Ink onto Whisper White. Then I took the colored Fine Tip Glue and filled him in. I actually did his eyes in regular/uncolored Fine Tip Glue. Allow this to dry. It will take at least an hour depending on how thick it was applied. As it dries you will notice the color is darker in certain spots! I love how that works! Coloring with the Fine Tip Glue Pen is super fun and there are endless possibilities! For my card base, I used Cucumber Crush and layered on a piece of Pacific Point that I ran through the Big Shot with the Seaside Embossing Folder. I added a few loops of Whisper White Baker’s Twine to the back of the toad and added it to the card front with Stampin’ Dimensionals.
