Experimenting with colouring in.....

Good morning all...
The house is very quiet on the computer or the Wii...yes..the girls are back to school. They went in looking taller and more grown up in their new uniform and shoes!
So today I am off to lunch with 2 girlfriends, so no cardmaking.

I have been doing a little bit of experimental colouring recently. Before I got my Promarkers I used watercolours and blendable colouring pencils to colour in stamped images. Then when I was chosen to be on the DT for Wild Rose Studio and started blogging...the Promarkers hit the headlines and I have used those ever since. Now I am mixing them all up and I have been using the pencils over the top of the Promarkers!
A Lady asked in a recent post on Craftbubble about Promarkers V Coloring I posted up this photo and suggested that you don't have to choose one over the other! I am going to use both for the next few cards I think.
Have a super day and come visit me again soon!

  3. Hi Sally! Yes I've tried that too, I think it's most useful when you come back to an image and the ink has dried so you can't add more colour with the blending technique without making it a lot darker. And it adds a bit of subtle texture too which is nice for the furry animals :-) Loving your work with the cats! Dulcie x
