I am a relative newbie when it comes to colouring and shading but I am learning as I go. First up I am going to show a card I made using Gelatos, Prima Fairy Belle papers and hemptique cord. I used my new Tim Holtz waterbrushes to colour my Penny Johnson Happy Day stamp with the Gelatos.
I then layered two different fairy belle papers after using the gelatos on the edges and the tonic distressing tool. I added brads to the corners of my stamped image and ran the hemptique cord around the edges. I used a thin strip of the same paper I mounted the image on accross the top of my card and then made a tag using a sizzlit die to go on top. I took more hemptique cord and ran it from the tag and under the strip in a criss cross pattern.
Ok next up I just have the rest of the images I coloured. First up is the Faber-Castell markers. I used both the big brush and the artist markers to colour with. On the left is the image I coloured straight from the markers, on the right I coloured using the waterbrushes.
Next up are the ones I did with distress markers. Again on the left is the image coloured straight from the distress markers, on the right the watercoloured image.
As I said I am still learning, but I am pretty happy with how the card turned out and hopefully I can do something nice with the rest of my images :)
Thanks for stopping by.
