This is for all you stampers out there that love to color in images or for the newbies that want to learn how to do that. I hope this tutorial helps you get the look that you’ve always wished you could create!
- water-based markers in various shades
- blender pen
- watercolor paper
Step 1: Print or stamp out lined image on watercolor paper. I find that you can get away with this technique with heavy cardstock but
the watercolor paper helps blend the colors better and the paper doesn’t peel when you color over the same spot over and over.
Step 6: In this image I had some trim of the girl’s coat that I wanted to be white. Even white has shadows so picked up some light blue with my blender pen and colored in just the spots I
wanted the shadows to be.
