I love coloring with my Spectrum Noir Markers. There's NO END to the things you can do with them!!! Seriously! Like the fun texture and dimension I added to my stamped images.
To create the texture on the outside of the tent, I used 1 marker, a piece of ribbon and rubbing alcohol. I colored the tent with a green marker -- adding a couple extra layers of the same marker in areas to darken to color. Then -- the fun part! Simply adding a little rubbing alcohol to a piece of ribbon and pressing it down onto the colored tent, I was able to create that AWESOME texture pattern! It's like magic I tell ya!
To create dimension on images, don't be afraid to use those dark colors! Sometimes all it takes is a teeny tiny little touch of a darker shade to really add that extra WOW to your coloring. And remember...it doesn't have to be in the same color family. You can see how I added touches of "blue gray" (BGR3 and BGR4) to the red parts of the lantern. I'm tellin' ya...it really makes a HUGE difference!
I painted a little Sheer Shimmer Spritz on the fireflies that I stamped on the yellow circle, and on the flame in the camp fire.
The stars are white embossed on dark gray cardstock - then I lightly sponged Black Distress ink on the panel to create a slightly darker night sky around them.
