A new technique, a birthday 'challenge and a sketch!

I have had this adorable image coloured up since last November!  Its a stamp from Stamping Bella illustrated by the talented and sweet Christy Croll!  When our basement flooded, I managed to save a few stamps, paper, and of course my copics!  I had some time to colour and I tried a few new techniques, one being the 'colour with no lines technique'.  I saw this amazingly done at Make it Crafty  and like I mentioned in an earlier post, you can see the technique masterfully done HERE!

I stamped the image onto beckett expression paper using Memento ink in Desert Sand.  I used my copics and a whole lot of prismacolor pencils to achieve the look I wanted.

I'm playing along with a few challenges today too!  The Pink Elephant is turning 3 this week!  Yay Happy Birthday!  They are challenging you to use PINK!

Also Im just getting in under the wire over at Deconstructing Jen!  I love this sketch blog!  I think the challenge ends today but there's still  time left!

Hope you're enjoying your day!  Thanks for stopping by!

  3. Gorgeous and very intriguing -- I'm going to have to check out that link to see how its done --- I'm a bit worried that some kind of drawing talent is involved. Your colouring, as always is fabulous!!!
