So… I do get a lot of email questions about coloring stamps and digital images for making cards and scrapbook layouts. Coloring is fun – especially when you have a lot of down-time like I have had lately! I also keep a stash of stamped images and markers handy next to the couch, for coloring while watching TV or movies. It’s relaxing, and fun. . . and then when I make cards I have loads of ready-to-go images to just slap down on the card and I’m finished!
Markers. . . there are a ton of different brands and varieties. Permanent, water-based, alcohol based, washable, cheap, expensive. . . which ones are best? I must admit that in my stash I have several of all varieties. In my quest to decide which brand I love best I gotta say that each different type has its valuable uses. I think that today’s video tutorial will explain it best. I hope that you enjoy watching and learning. Here are three still shots of finished digi-stamps that I promised. The stamps used in this video are from Little Scraps of Heaven and it was awfully nice of them to allow me to use their stamp as an example. Thank you!!! They have so many cute digis. . . go see!
Click to see them larger. . . the first bear was colored with water-based, washable markers. The second, with permanent, alcohol based markers. The last was colored and blended with the same permanent alcohol based markers. . . the video demonstrates how this was done.
Thanks for stopping by, and thanks for watching! :)
