This week’s challenge over at the TSG blog is being issued by our Trendsetter of the Week, Kim! She wants us to create a card that uses NO MARKERS…no Copics, no Tombow Markers…NO MARKERS AT ALL! Can you believe it? So reach for those pastels, colored pencils, or other coloring mediums that you’ve been neglecting and show them some love this week! And as always, we can’t wait to see what you come up with!
Before I reached for Copics (and I was resisting for long...), I was colouring with my good ole' watercolour pencils, and I must say that I really enjoyed them. It was so cool to give them some attention once again, after a few months of neglecting... so it's a watercolouring kind of day for me! Tee hee!
Supplies: cardstock: recycled kraft, white; paper: My Mind's Eye (Stella & Rose - Gertie); stamps: There She Goes (Under The Weather); ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black), Versa Color (Celadon); watercolour pencils: Belgrave; blender pen; brown pen; letter stickers: Carolee's Creations; Nestabilities Circles, Scalloped Circles; sewing machine; buttons; edge distresser; lace: Kaisercraft; glitter glue: Reeves; string: AnnaBelle Stamps
I used the GS#80 sketch:
