Marker Geek Monday time! As promised in my recent Stamp It Saturday post, today I’m sharing a coloured pencil colouring video for my Tiny Townie Rita winter scene.
Here’s a look at the finished colouring:
Stamp Used: Tiny Townie Rita and the Reindeer (coordinating die also available).
You can watch me colouring the scene in the video below or in HD over on YouTube. Please excuse the fact that from time to time my hair gets in the way! This is a longer video, and I’m sorry to all of you who wish for real time videos – I have had to speed up the footage, or the video would have been 2 hours long.
TIP: Should you try colouring on a kraft/tan paper or any other different shade from the usual white, I highly recommend creating a swatch/colour chart on the same paper first. That way you can see exactly how the colours behave. For this piece I have used Strathmore Toned Tan paper.
Note: the background was created as shown in my Stamp It Saturday post, by masking using a stencil and Distress Oxide inks.
If you’d like me to cover a specific topic here, do let me know by leaving a comment, and I will see what I can do! Bear with me for the next few weeks though, as I am in the process of moving house and will be busy for a little while setting up my new craft room!
