Well 2009 is almost finished. So, I wanted to get in one more post to my blog before years end.
The card that I have posted today is a Thomas Kinkade stamp called "Foxglove Cottage". I purchased the stamps from CornishHeritageFarms. They not only have the complete line of Thomas Kinkade stamps, but also a lot of other unusual stamps.
The image for "Foxglove Cottage" was colored with Copic Markers and Spica Pens. The images from the TK series may look impossible to color, but if you do it in easy steps, it all comes together quite beautiful.
Here is the card;
Copic Tidbits for this Card;
1. Color in the bright colors first, such as the windows, and flowers
2. Fill in with the earth tones, the grass, trees, and the house
3. When you are done with the complete picture, use a W1 grey marker to color over everything except the windows and bright spots that you colored in Step#1
4. Use a Spice Pen to color in the bright spots.
Walla!!! your done.
If you break the image down into steps it makes it a lot easier to color the image. Give it a try, It's Simple.
Have a GREAT DAY!!!
Happy New Year
