Several weeks ago I ask if you would like to see a coloring tutorial, you said yes, so here you are...
I stamped the image onto watercolor paper with Brown Staz-on ink and selected the ink spots I wanted to use. I used the decorative paper to help with color selection.
With a blender pen touched to the ink pad, I start by coloring the edges of each element and moving the color inward. This adds depth and interest. As you can see, I use the edge around my image as a palette of sorts; checking and blending color as needed.
Once all the color has been added, I go back with Close to Cocoa and Chocolate Chip to add distressing and shading. I just love the aged look this gives to images.
So tell me what you think. I don't know if that was detailed enough. If it wasn't I will try again.
Thanks so much for stamping by!
