30 Day Color Challenge

Hi all it has been a while!  Sorry about that...It seems I start every post that way now.  I hate to admit it but I haven't done much doodling for months now! So that means no blog posts.  I have been trying to get this place organized... I even put a work table in my living room! I figure, since I live alone I can do whatever I I did!  I will post a photo soon, I'm just afraid to take it now, I am using my iPad to write this and it can be temperamental at times and I end up losing everything!

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 .... 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.

    1. Hi Tara! Thanks so much. Sorry I am so slow responding, I don't get any notification so I don't know when someone comments! It was a fluke I saw this one. THANKS AGAIN!
