Hello!

Today I coloured an image of an alien girl with coloured pencils. To create a 3D effect I used two shades of each colour. I started out with the lightest one pressing very lightly and colouring the whole area. Next I go in with the darker shade pressing to get the full colour. Once I have done that I go in with the lighter shade pressing harder to blend out the darker one.

No Line Colouring – Distress Markers

Hello!

Today I have created this card using distress markers. Before I printed the Ava digital stamp from Saturated Canary I faded out the lines, using Photoshop, to create the no line colouring effect. I When colouring a no line colouring image with distress markers you have to be really careful with not going over the lines. As you add colour the lines will go away and they are not visible anymore. Therefore you have to be careful and remember how the image looks like. A tip that I usually use is to print another copy of the image with black lines that I have next to me as I colour. This makes it a lot easier as I colour to know where the shadows would be.
 
Once I had coloured the image I stamped the Birthday wishes stamp from the Birthday Messages stamp set from Simon Says Stamp onto the side of the piece. I then added dashed lines around the outside and then adhered it to a card base.

No Line Colouring

Hello!

 

Today I created a card using the no line colouring technique. I started out by printing the Party Hardy digital stamp from Saturated Canary onto some Neenah Solar White #110 Card stock. Before I printed the image I faded out the lines using Photoshop. I then coloured the image in like I normally would except once the colouring is done the lines does not show up. Therefore I went in with a black pen and filled in the lines that are meant to be seen, such as the eyes. Once I had done that I stamped one of the sentiment stamps from the Birthday Balloons stamp set from Simon Says Stamp onto the side of the card and it was done!

Hello!

 

I created this card by printing the “Balloon Wishes” digital stamp from Saturated Canary. I printed her onto some Neenah Solar White #110 card stock and coloured her in using a mix between pro-markers and flex-markers. These markers are similar to Copics but a lot cheeper and I find that they work great.
