Lots of coloring this week :)

A week or so ago I posted about stamping multiple images while you have your supplies out. Well I had some opportunities the last week or so to do some coloring. I used 3 different techniques for coloring. Here are the images I colored...

I LOVE how this came out!!! I used my Koh I Noor Woodless Colored Pencils and Odorless mineral spirits (inexpensive from Walmart) to blend the colors. I love that is looks almost like coloring with alcohol markers. You do also need some blending Stumps to make this technique work. I got mine for around $5 at Walmart. I do plan to work on a video for this but you can find lots on Youtube already.

This Fairy is from Crackerbox stamps

Here are a few more images I colored with this technique

These Two Mermaids  are from Unity Stamp Company as part of their "Angie Girl" line. This one is called "Sammy girl"

This cute mermaid is from Penny Black and is part of her "Mimi" line. This was my first impression with this stamp which as you can see did not come out perfect. I decided it was still just right to practice some coloring.

Next I have one that I used just colored pencils and did not blend...  I am still working on coloring vehicles... It is not as easy as it seems... As you will see in the next photo.

If you have any tips for my on coloring vehicles please let me know in the comments!

This are 2 pictures in this group that I used my Spectrum Noir markers for the coloring. I mostly liked how they turned out. Also I did use come metallic markers from Crayola to try to get the chrome look on the truck. The markers have a pretty blunt tip so it was hard to get the detail right.  I made the light blue shadow with watercolor pencils and water.

Here is Gianna, another "Angie Girl" from Unity Stamp Company. This is my first time trying to color one of these stamps with my Spectrum Noir markers. I did mess up in a few places but overall I like how it turned out.

Next up are some images colored with my watercolor pencils...

These Lighthouses are all from Stampendous.

This Poppy stamp is also from Unity Stamp Company. I was really pleased with how all of these turned out!

I thought it would be fun to try some different colors other that the traditional red for the poppies.

Now to make some cards from all my colored images...

Thanks for joining me!
