Starting Today, the ABC Design Blog will be updated Mon-Fri. Each day a differnt Design Team member will post a new project along with store updates to include sales and promotions. If you would like a daily dose of inspiration, you may want to add the above blinkie to your sidebar.
My project of the day features a stamp line that I have been seeing around Blog Land and have finally gotten my inky little hands on. Meet "Gruffies" Party Preparation Bear by Stampabilities. If you are new to Copic coloring then these little cuties would be a great place to start. The image measures 5"x3" and notice how the areas to be shadowed have little dots to indicate darker coloring. One of these days maybe I will be skilled enough in my Copic Coloring to photograph the stacked up markers that I have used, however, most of the time I use just about every color that I own in an attempt to shade correctly. Not the case with this image, Yippee!!! Here are the colors I used (BEAR = E37, E35, E33 & E53), (PARTY HAT = YG67, YG63 YG11), (BLUE HORN = B97 & 0 blender), (YELLOW HORN = YR23, YR20) and I shadowed using W-1 along with the blender pen...... Rather than color his balloon, I found a fun little chipboard by ATD (does anyone know what that stands for??) ........... "Wish Big" sentiment is from the Penny Black "Micey Day" stamp set.
