Twelve Designers of Christmas: Day 9 Kathy Racoosin
Hello, friends. How are you today? My name is Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker, and I am super excited and honored to play along with Honey Bee Stamps for the 12 Designers of Christmas. Today is Day 9. I really enjoy this time of the year and all the inspiration that I find here at the blog.
For my post today I wanted to show you a fun way to combine the Christmas stamp “Blah Humbunny” for a Holiday card or for a non holiday card (without the sentiments).
December 1 – 11 we will give away a $25 Gift Certificate to one person who comments on that day’s blog post
December 12th we will give away a $100 Gift Certificate to one lucky commenter, so be sure to leave comments daily!
In my video today I show you how I masked off the Message in a Bottle with the Blah Humbunny and how using colored pencils can enhance your alcohol markers.
I find it faster and easer to get shaded areas by coloring with markers first and then adding accents with colored pencils.
On the flip side if you are a colored pencil person … starting with markers and laying down that first layer of color you can save yourself some time.
I thought it might be interesting to see what my coloring looked like before I enhanced it with my colored pencils .
Adding a final touch with a twine bow for some dimension added that little extra. Using a super fine tip marker I added eye brows to the lil bunnies to give them more personality. So fun!!
Thank you for your visit today and a big thanks to Honey Bee stamps for letting me play with their awesome stamps especially during the 12 Days. Happy Holidays to you.
