I've been getting the emails about the latest 3 Girl Jam Challenge ~ Kraft with Ribbon, and am loving the inspiration! So I decided to join in on the fun.
- cardstock: white(Neenah), kraft & yellow(stash)
- ribbon: Hug Snug Ribbon
- stamp: Unity SOTW (Let beauty surround you)
- pencils: Prismacolor
- marker: Spectrum Noir
- ink: Memento
Here's something that many of you probably know already, but maybe a few of you don't, so I thought that I'd share...If you want a custom color of ribbon, its not necessary to pull out the dye pots, you can just grab some white ribbon and an alcohol marker, then color that ribbon! I used white rayon seam binding ribbon, and the marker made the ribbon a bit stiffer than it is normally, but that was great, since it made my bow keep shape better!
And I just wanted to show a closer picture of the coloring...look...shading! And moreover, shading that doesn't look amateurish (shh, keep your opinions otherwise to yourself!)
This is encouragement to any of you who look at your own coloring and think that you'll never get better...my advice to you...keep coloring anyway!!! The practice with your chosen medium will have you oohing and ahhing at your own work in no time at all!
Thanks for stopping by!
