Yesterday's cards inspired me to get my Colored Pencils out again last night and color! I wanted to get the edges of the images a little darker to add more depth, so I used my Memento Markers along with my Koh-i-noor pencils. Any markers will work, of course - but since I have the Memento ones on my desk next to my colored pencils, I decided to try them.
I stamped the Magnolia images in Black Memento Ink onto Georgia Pacific cardstock and then using the Koh-i-noor pencils, Odorless Mineral Spirits, and blending stumps I colored the entire image. For the face of this little gal, I used some new Lyra Skin tones colored pencils that I recently found at Dick Blick's store in Chicago. I love the colors in the Koh-i-noor selection, but they don't have any skin tones colors.
Here's a close up of the little gal...
One quick note on combining markers with Colored Pencils... you can use Copics with pencils, but you should always use Copics FIRST so the waxy lead found in the colored pencils doesn't harm your marker tips. Since I don't always think that far in advance, I usually use my Waterbased (Dye) markers instead - lol!
