Welcome to “The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge” Blog Hop! Kathy Raccoosin from The Daily Marker has arranged this hop to share with you her love of coloring! And I am so happy to be a guest on the Pretty Pink Posh blog today to share with you MY love of coloring!
The premise of “The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge” is to color something everyday even if it’s for five minutes. (However feel free to jump in or out as time permits). Any coloring medium is welcomed. Click here to find out where to share what you are coloring and join the encouraging community of happy colorists PLUS answers to other questions you may have.
So now let’s get started with some cards that will be showing my favorite coloring technique using some of the brand new adorable Pretty Pink Posh products (just released yesterday!). On each of my projects, I stamped the PPP images with a natural color ink and then colored them with either Copic markers or watercolor paints. This is referred to as no-line stamping. After they were colored, I outlined each part of the image and added details to the images with gel/glitter pens.
This card uses the PPP stamp set called Bee Friends that comes free with a $80 purchase in March 2017, while supplies last. I made the background of the card with the Mini Storybook 1 Die. I watercolored it with greens and blues and then splattered it with water and paint drops while it was wet to give it a mottled look.
This shaker card uses the Friends Forever Stamp and coordinating dies. I die-cut the opening in the background using the Window Frames Dies. I watercolored the background with turquoise watercolor and then splattered it with water while wet to leave splotches. I attached a transparency to the backside of the opening and then put foam tape on the back of this piece. I attached it to a card base and used two types of sequins inside the shaker: the Sparkling Clear Confetti Mix and the Sparkling Clear Stars Sequins.
I stamped each of the images with a natural color of ink. I then colored them with Copic Markers. I outlined them and added details with glitter pens and a white Uniball marker. I added Glossy Accents to the top of the balloons to give them sheen! I used the Everyday Greetings Stamp Set for the salutation with red embossing powder. I added some more of the Sparkling Clear Confetti Mix.
I hope these projects motivate you to get out your stamps and coloring tools and have some fun coloring! The next person on the hop is Honey Bee Stamps. Keep following along the hop as you will find lots of giveways along the way! A full list of all the winners will be announced on The Daily Marker Blog on Sunday, March 12th.
