Hey everyone! I hope all of you are doing well!
If you remember I told you a few posts back that I was top 3 at Gingerloft and was invited to be a guest designer for a challenge. The challenge at Gingerloft is “Our furry friends”. Here is my card for the challenge,
At Wee Memories the challenge is to be inspired by someone or something crafts related. For this card, my inspiration comes from all of you crafters who colour their images BEAUTIFULLY with copics and promarkers.
I have the worst colouring skills and I really struggle with digi/stamp images… this time was no different. So I decided to use my regular markers and colour the image like everyone else does. I knew that regular markers will make the image bland, without any shading or depth, and it will look like I am in grade 2 all over again! So I coloured this image from Gingerloft with WASHABLE MARKERS and a water brush. It was just like painting and SO MUCH fun! Actually I have a pack of 50 markers, most of them have dried up. I have had this set since I was a kid and that was a VERY long time ago! So I scribbled my dried marker over the image and with the help of the water brush I spread the colour around.
All the flowers, the two vines and the sentiment frame is cut from Silhouette. The sentiment is from LOTV. I have used holographic lilac glitter on the fairy’s wings and lower part of the dress. The unicorn’s tail, mane are glittered silver and grey.
Here you can see clearly the dark patches from the marker. For all of us who don’t have Copics or Pro markers, try this out. REMEMBER, only WASHABLE markers will work.
Have a great day peeps and don’t forget to check out the post before this one. Two posts in one day, I must’ve eaten something wrong!
ETA: I have been asked to join the Gingerloft DT and I accepted as I will only have to make ONE card in TWO weeks! I guess I am not THAT bad at colouring images!! LMAO
