Hmmm, Is Awesomeness even a word, well if it isn’t it should be! This week I challenged my designers to create cards and projects inspired by nature. Many of the Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff sets are nature themed so it was easy to find a stamp to use, I decided to work with my Fancy Flowers digital stamp set and here is what I came up with:
I got the idea to use colored pencils over my copic markers from a lady in my What’s Digital Stamping? Yahoo Group (Thanks Tiffany, you rock!) and I love the results. You simply color the images as usual with your copic (or Bic, Sharpie or Prismacolor) markers then add colored pencil on top. The more color you add the more it will glow but if you were coloring something that was fuzzy (like a teddy bear) or rough (like a rock) you can use a lighter touch to pick up some of the texture of the paper.
Tiffany warns up not to use the marker over the colored pencil though, it will gunk up our marker nibs.
I first colored the images with markers as I normally would, then I added colored pencils around the edges and blended them inward with a colorless blending pencil, or you can use a lighter colored pencil.
Now let’s see what nature inspired designs the rest of the Lindsay’s Stamp Stuff design team has for us today!
Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!
