Hi there! I have another Stampendous! Blogstar post going live at the blog! Today I'm using one of our cute line-art images called Giraffe Baby. Check him out.
Distress Markers are water-based markers so you must colour on watercolor paper- which I love because of its fabulous texture. To accentuate the shadows and really enhance the depth in the image I used a charcoal pencil and blending stump on top of the image once the colouring was complete. Here's a close up:
You may also notice that I sponged some clouds in the background with Broken China Distress Ink, I always add something to the backgrounds of my images.. They just don't look right unless they're in some kind of setting.
