This week for Marker Geek Monday I’ve been playing with our current Stamp of the Month for July 2017 – the adorable Petunia has a Party.
Recently I’ve had a few requests to show some more coloured pencil colouring, specifically Prismacolor pencils. I thought I would start by experimenting with some different skin tones and sharing the results!
The stamp set featured in today’s post is the awesome new LITTLES SURFER stamp set (coordinating die set also available).
A quick note about the new LITTLES stamp sets – these sets are utterly adorable and lots of fun to play with in terms of creating scenes. They also happen to be great for colouring, and specifically for practicing blending and colouring. They are small, the girl shown below is approx. 1 3/4″ tall, but have less fine details than the usual Stamping Bella style, so are a little easier to practice shading and adding your own details.
The “skin combos” shown are by no means the only combos that exist, or even the “best”. These are just the results of a little play time, trying out some different colours together. Use them as inspiration for your own colouring, as a jumping off point to experiment with your own combinations. The hair and outfit colours are the same for each, only the skin colours differ.

Marker Geek Monday is here again! I am pretty sure my brain is still somewhere back in February, but I’ve been informed that we’re actually almost done with May. Must be all the colouring occupying my thoughts. Ha! Today I’m combining a couple of my favourite things and showing you how to create some fun and simple cards using Copics and Distress Inks together.
