Just wandering

Afternoon lovely bloggers,
 On my journeys around all the lovely blogs I visit, I have noticed nearly all images that are used are stamped, now I know colouring in these stamps is an art but is there any protocol to say we must use images to colour in. I have so many wonderful images on various cd's that I love using and feel there is still a good amount of work needed to colour co-ordinate and embellish my work to still call it art. I would like to hear peoples opinions on
