Colour Challenge with Tech. Tuesday Stamps

Well! I am back from Ireland, beat the jetlag again (thanks to 24 hours of travel = no sleep for 24 hours = when I got home Sunday night I was tired = no jetlag) and I am ready to craft… On my trip I brought along some stamped images and my Tim Holtz distress markers so I could practice with them a little more.. Here’s the image I coloured close-up:

I find I colour a little differently than I do with Copic markers (because blending is done with a water pen) but it was easy to switch the PROCESS because I know what I want the end result to look like. Does that make sense? I think once you kind of figure out your colouring style it’s easy to switch mediums.. At least that’s what I’ve found…

So as the title suggests, I played along with today’s colour challenge at SCS: chocolate brown, taupe, and a slate blue colour. I used new Pink Paislee patterened papers Prairie Hill collection… Great match, eh?

I have a couple more projects to share soon, but in the meantime, thanks for joining me on journey to Ireland (if you missed it, CLICK HERE). Take Care!
Supplies Used: Pink Paislee patterened papers Prairie Hill collection; Image stamped on watercolour paper; Elephant stamp: Little Peanut – Technique Tuesday, Sentiment: Sweet Somethings – Technique Tuesday; Twinery twine; Nestabilities; Pink Paislee chipboard elements; Vintage Photo distress ink and applicator; ranger Distress markers
