How many of you automatically reach for that Tuxedo Black Memento when stamping, I know I always have.
Well, next time, grab Angel Pink and see how different your finished image can look.....
This image was coloured purely with Copics, although Zoe suggests adding highlights/low lights with pencil to add definition.
It gives a much softer, pastel like quality to your work as the stamp lines don't show - it's just your colouring that is visible.
This technique does come with a "warning" - it isn't easy and is much more time consuming than the traditional method. I had quite a pile of bloopers around my feet by the time I'd finished, but it is such a cool look it is well worth the effort.
Tip: It's what I call my "sanity saver" - get your faithful Tuxedo Black and stamp the image on some scrap paper, then you'll have a nice clear image to follow when the lines disappear under the Copic ink.
What do you think?
Amazing just looks so pretty! Chanelle xx
I just saw this in the FB group..totally stunning hon :0)
hugs Debs x
it's wonderful, Jane, I can't stop looking!
what a great technique - she is simply STUNNING! WOW.
Fabulous Jane, it's such a beautiful effect. I've stamped with brown quite often which gives a softer look but I love how you've made the image look using the pink ink pad! Hugs, Chris :)
I loved Zoe's and now i am gawking over yours, fabulous!!!! i am so intimidated to try this, but i think i may have to give it a go at some point, TFS
So how much longer did it take you? LOL! Absolutely gorgeous Jane!
Yup! Scary, Jane! I also grab my black momento. But I'm always up for a challenge, maybe I'll try this sometime, But not on Kraft, I'd never see it. lol
Ha Ha this is definitely a white card challenge Dorcas......and with white it's tests your patience and sanity at times.
Hey darlin!! I am sitting here with my mouth hanging open just drooling over your coloring!!! This is beyond stunning!!! I love the finished product!! Simply gorgeous!! OK...you've convinced me, I'm ordering some pink ink so I can try this!! Thanks for the tips too. I suspect I'll be wading in "rejects" too...but, practice makes perfect...or something like that!! hehe! Hugs...Pat Frank
Oh my word, this is absolutely fabulous. Stunning colouring! I won't be trying it... will just admire everyone else's attempts... hugs Sharon
No lines to colour up to? Eeeeek! OMG hun, you have done such an amazing job with this, totally blown away by it. I'm rubbish with Copics but wonder if it would work with Distress Inks .... hmmmmm Hugs Sxxx
Ooh, why not give it a go Squirrel, I for one would love to see the results. I'd offer to do it but I've never coloured with Distress Inks and to try "no lines" first time out would be....well, I suspect I'd be booking a bed at the funny farm!!
OMG WOW your colouring is absolutely BRILLIANT!!! I wish I could colour like that!!
Oh WOW! Amazing colouring. Must have taken you ages to do this one - apart from all the bloopers you mention! Not sure I have the guts to try this though.
Angel Pink ...have to look this up. I love this image and as always your coloring is perfect.
Fabulous coloring Jane. You have mastered this technique.
Lovely colouring Jane, it looks so soft and pretty. Great tip!
What a Fantastic Effect
I can honestly say the only time I try anything new ink wise is xmas time. Then out comes the blue and white.
Jane, You make everything look so easy...
I'm Pea Green!
More Than Love it
Stunning Jane! Just stunning! What cool idea. I may have to give it a go.
I've seen this done before and you are right it does give the image a softer look. I love it! You did an great job.
