Now for my YELLOW project!!!
When I was finished coloring this little guy, I colored in the stripes on his shirt using a simple black Sharpie ultra fine tip pen. I THEN colored over various areas on him using a clear glaze pen. Spectrum Noir markers are alcohol ink markers that dry fast and are a perfect base for glazes. Glaze actually heightens the color effect! I played with some lighting so that you could see it a little better:
Finally, I took a metallic green pen to the polka dots on the gift package and a gold metallic pen to the suspender straps. I REALLY love coloring this image!!! Click on any of the pics above to enlarge.
Ok, that's it!!! I thought I'd leave you with another preview of the AWESOME pens up for grabs at the end of this hop!!! Gorgeous aren't they? Now, hop on over to the Amazing Leann's blog.... check out what she did (and check out the flowers)!!!!
Thanks for joining us today, have fun hopping and best of luck on winning a 72 piece set of Spectrum Noir pens (and maybe even a gift certificate)!
