There are 322 colors in the "sketch" line, like the ones I'm using, so there are PLENTY of colors to choose from. I have outgrown this little tin already though...pity. *sigh* It's a cute tin.
I used my HugBug Deluxe Browser from PC Crafter and found all of the files that I had available with linework (black/white files) in them. I wish they still made these type files, but you can only find them on the creatables released prior to 2006 (just dig around the site, you'll find them). I printed anywhere from 4-8 images per page on my HP OfficeJet Pro printer, then sat down and started coloring. I'm very impressed with how easy they are to use. I LOVE the colorless blender pen!! I do think my 80lb cardstock may not be good enough for this technique, though, because I've noticed some bleeding in spots. Anyway, here's what I've been doing:
This one below is from Trina Clark. I used a combination of the Copics and the "Gamsol" technique (odorless mineral spirits and colored pencils). Turned out really cute, I think. Face, hair, and outer shadow is Copic marker; bonnet, binky, jumper is OMS technique.
Now THIS one (below) was done a couple of weeks ago entirely in the OMS technique. (Graphic from Trina Clark.)
Now, if I could find a sweet way to cut out around them to make them presentable for cards....Oh, Honey!!! I think I NEED to get some spellbiners for my Cuttlebug! *ROFL* I'd also like to increase my collection of linework...maybe some Squigglefly pieces should be next...
Thanks for stopping by! Have a great rest of your day!!
