I am having so much fun with this.
I know it is far from Christmas. But looking outside to the snow in our yard and the temperatures being -5C (but feeling colder), you would think it was here.
Because of the Copic colours I have, there are only certain images I can colour. I tried my new stamp. It really took the ink, almost to much so. From looking at this picture you really can't tell, but the top images were so dark. So I stamped off the page then on the page that my image was going to be coloured on.
Here is that stamp coloured with my Copic markers. Like I said with the limited amount of colours I had to work with, I think it turned out pretty good. I think I may need to order some more Copics ;) What do you think?
The contrast between the highlights and shading didn't show up as much in this picture.
I have a bit of advice for anyone over 40 that wants to colour in images.
1. Colour in the bright light of the day. A lamp causes shadows.
2. Its just ink if you don't like your colouring stamp another image.
3. This is my best advice. Don't forget to wear your cheater glasses, teehee. I know I should get prescription glasses, but... I'm in denial, OK. Onto My Day:
I went to pick up Kristy's birthday cake. All my girls love Dairy Queen ice cream cake for their birthday's. So I figured since I had to go there, I may as well take the girls there for lunch.
I stopped by Michael's for that glue pen...yup, I remembered my coupon :) I also picked up some watercolour paper, as I want to try my hand at colouring with distress inks. I know, I can't master one thing before I start on something new :)
I got caught up on my book work....I didn't say it was an exciting day, lol.
Hope you got to create today.
