I had bought this stamp by W Plus 9 a few years back because I just loved the image…and I still do, but, for some reason, I never used her in anything! I think I was a bit afraid to color her in and make her look like a little girl and not a blob.
I have been trying to work on my coloring skills. I follow Jane Allen, Sandy Allnock, Amy Shulke of Vanilla Arts and others. I have Derwent Inktense, which I love but I they didn’t give me the color I wanted when dry so I bought some Prismacolor premiere. They are wonderful pencils with bright colors and the white pencil really stands out but, they are all off centered and pain to sharpen. It’s a shame that the quality is not there.
Anyhooo….getting back to my coloring, I couldn’t wait to try everything out. I stamped out a couple of images on Neenah Solar 80 lb. cardstock and began coloring with Copic. I then went over lightly with my Prismacolor to add a bit more dimension. I like how she turned out.
O then decided to try stamping her on Neenah Desert Storm with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and colored her with Copics and then Prisma. I am not as pleased with this result but it’ll do.
Let me know what you think and if you have any tips for me. I would appreciate hearing from you.
Ciao for now,
