good morning everyone
good morning everyone
here is the little bit of magic i was talking about yesterday
useing a stamped image in versafine smokey grey on water colour paper and water colour pencils
the little bit of Magic is a (-Pro Marker Blender pen-)
step 1
go around the edges of image with colour you need as in top picture
step 2
useing blender pen move the coloures out to centre leaving alittle white paper for highlights
step 3
you can now start to add depth to your image with darker colours and repeating step 2
you can see the results in 3rd picture you can add as much or as little as you like
(make sure you clean blender pen nib when changing colours) by just wiping on scrap piece of paper
you will find you have alot more control with blender pen and water colour pencils as there is no water involved.
thank you for popping by
