Anyway, I have decided to take a 30 day Color challenge hosted by Kathy Racoosin just to get myself active again! I started yesterday with this... A set of Art Impressions stamps (created for Michael's) ... Colored with Spectrum Noir markers
My initial intent was to fussy cut around each character then use them separately later...but then I saw the legs of the chairs and thought NO WAY! So I colored the background around them. That's why he looks like he is sitting behind her...I would have done it differently if I had started with this finish in mind! Now that I look at it I could still fussy cut everything but the legs then stamp the legs directly to a separate background .... Hummm...new challenge, I will do that and show it.
Anyway, today I decided to use Clear and Simple stamps (sold only through their site) to do samples of different coloring tools, watercolors, alcohol markers, colored pencils, and die based markers:
Nothing special, but I do know that the Spectrum Noir pens were MUCH faster and easier to get the shading done. I think my favorite will be to use both SN pens with the colored pencils together.
