Todays image is from "Stampavie" the stamp is called "Bernadette admiring the spring flowers". It's a really cute stamp, but has a lot of detail coloring to do.
When I color images that have very small areas, I tend to go with two colors in the family group. Also I don't color in circles. What I do is lay down the light color first, then the darker color. With the lightest color I pull the darker color out. This keeps the ink from going out side the image line. Try it, it works for me and I get, what is to me, an acceptable blend.
I added some Crystal Lacquer to the watering can and some Spica colors to other areas. The paper for the image was "Curious Cryogen", I love this paper.
Now get ready for this, because I used a lot of different markers on this one. Here are the colors I used;
Skin; E000, E00, E01, R11
Blouse; Y11, Y15, Y17
Hair; Y11, Y21, E97, E99
Pants; E31, E35, B05, R24, R27
Water Can; C0, C3, C5
Foreground; YG01, YG05
That's a lot of colors, plus I used random colors for the flowers.
I hope you enjoy my effort for the day. Your comments are always welcome.
Have a GREAT DAY!!!
