Hello, Friends!!! How are you this weekend? I am super excited and honored to play along with Honey Bee Stamps for the 12 Designers of Christmas. Today is Day 9 and it’s my turn. Such an honor and a pleasure.
In my video today I show you how I masked off the Message in a Bottle with the Blah Humbunny and how using colored pencils can enhance your alcohol markers. I find it faster and easer to get shaded areas by coloring with markers first and then adding accents with colored pencils.
If you are a colored pencil person … starting with markers and laying down that first layer of color you can save yourself some a lot of time.
I thought it might me interesting to see what my coloring looked like before I enhanced it with my pencils .
In case you are wondering I used my Chameleon colored pencils. I drew eye brows with my 0.03 Copic maker. Speaking of Copics Simon Says Stamp is having a 25%OFF!! Use Code Copic Sale!! If you don’t have the super fine tip marker now is the time to get it. It’s a must have and the only way to add little eye brows and eye lashes.
