Hello friends. I'm so glad you stopped by.
While on my break, I've been doing a lot of coloring.
I participated in Kathy Racoosin's
The Coloring Challenge Road Trip
I had so much fun with the class and learned a lot.
Right now Kathy is hosting one of her
30 Day Coloring Challenges
and I've enjoy checking in with her each day and
doing some coloring along the way.
Thanks for all the inspiration, Kathy!
Day One was Coloring with Sharpies
I pulled some Sharpies out of the grandkids supplies and went to work
on a NBUS stamp.
I stamped with Memento Toffee Crunch ink onto Neenah cardstock
and used orange and red Sharpies. I used both the fine tip and ultra fine tip types.
The stems were done with Watercolor Pencils and I used a bit
of white gouache paint to splatter.
While the stamp was in my MISTI, I stamped again with Shadow Gray Archival ink
on mixed media paper.
This time I colored with Arteza Twimarkers and blended with my waterbrush.
Adding highlights to the nooks and crannies with colored pencils
works beautifully with both media.
I can't decide which way I like the best!
Both were fun ways to color and I was pleased with the results of both.
I hope you are all healthy and taking advantage of our enforced time at home.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
