Coloring Tips by Toni Johnson
I love the style by Toni coloring my digi stamps and it is a pleasure to show you her work: Pencils seem to work quite well irrespective of the darkness of the card and the Derwent Inktense pencils are rich enough to give a good depth of colour as I found here...
...and the Derwent Coloursoft pencils also gave a nice effect...
...especially when keeping to a limited selection of colours and only shading parts of the image.
My preferred medium for colouring is alcohol pens and trying them on scraps of kraft card that I had really wasn't doing anything for me. The colour of the card was too dark for the pens to really be noticed. Then I tried Crafter's Companion Neenah card in the colour "Desert Storm". Wow, what a difference. The smoothness of the card is perfect for colouring with alcohol pens and the kraft colour is pale enough to allow the colours to show.
So I printed off some of the cute Grace Drayton images...
...and got stuck in...
So You can`t miss these sets to play coloring:
'How Does Your Garden Grow
' It. is the Theme-hosted by the lovely Brenda. I used a beautiful image from one of our regular sponsors, Nicecrane Designs and just added a bit of glitter to the butterfly, love these pre-coloured digital images, so easy to use. Yellow and blue isn't a normal colour combo for me but I rather like it...
