Hi Blog Friends!
Today, I am here for
The 30 Day Coloring Challenge!
Today, I thought I'd show you lined & no-line coloring pieces I've done.
I used a Brutus Monroe Image-Botanical Background.
I colored it with Faber Castell- Colored Pencils.
I like the crispness of the image when doing lined coloring.
I also did a bit of cross & cross-hatching in the background for depth.
Since this post is about Coloring, I thought you might like to hear about the Pencils I'm using.
Faber Castell Colored Pencils blend like butter!
They're oil based, so that helps with the blending & you don't even need Gamsol!
As always, & as with any pencil, just make sure you keep your pencil sharpened!
Another plus for Faber Castell Pencils?
The leads are glued into the shaft of the pencil, so they break less!
(I can't say I've EVER had one of my Faber Castell Pencils/Leads break!)
I like that & feel I am not constantly sharpening my pencils because they have broken off,
as with other pencils!
No-Line Coloring offers a different look, where the images aren't as crisp & give a hand drawn look.
You just stamp with a lighter colored ink, & color it in as with any other image.
The only exception is that you are the one who is to make the lines prominent,
with your coloring medium of choice.
That sharp pencil lead comes in handy here!
I've told you which one I prefer.
Which one do you prefer?
Both of these panels will make nice backgrounds for a couple of cards in the future! ;)
