It’s DT THURSDAY with KATHY RAC-abella!

MIXED MEDIA COLORING

Hello Everyone, My name is Kathy from The Daily Marker and I am excited to be back on the Stamping Bell Blog today.

Tea cups, floral vintage dishes, crystal … all things I love to collect so when I saw this stamp called, “Edna’s CUP OF TEA” from Stamping Bella I just had to have it. I set out to create a card set of four but, things went a little south.

I stamped the image on Tim Holtz pre cut watercolor color paper and inked the stamp with black archival ink.

Notice two of the cards the tea cups are positioned differently. I was chatting and placed the paper in the wrong area in the misti but, fortunately it still worked. I was away at a retreat when I colored these sweet angels but, I managed to pull together a little video to show you how I painted the background with distress ink.

When everything was bone dry I added some shadows with my copic markers. Gasp I know and it might use a little extra ink but, it’s a time saver for me and it works well if I don’t go over the black line.

A little extra shading with a sharp tip colored pencil. Easy to control and just fun too.

Adding foam tape to my watercolored card panels gave my card some depth and more interest. Some white dots and lines with a white gel pen was the final touch. I hope you picked up a few tips today and thanks for your visit. Hugs, Kathy=
