The 30 Day Coloring Challenge - Day 17

IMG_9649


It is Day 17 of Kathy Racoosin's 30 Day Coloring Challenge at The Daily Marker.com!




I have been keeping up pretty good this time, I like how it pushes me to do some type of colouring every day. Today I used my new Simon Says Stamps Stacking Animals stamp set. I will tell you a few ended up in the recycle bin. I seem to have so much trouble connecting images even when I am right on op of them and with my glasses on. I coloured these little guys today with my ZIG Clean Color Brushes and a waterbrush.  I my ZIG's work best, for me anyway, if I wet the image with my brush before applying the colour and then use my waterbrush to move it around. So far I have had the most luck with lighter shades.  We are still getting to know one another--lol

This card is just so sweet!! LOVE that image and your watercolor is fabulous. Thank you for the tip about wetting the paper a bit too. I tried to play with them a little last night but it was an epic fail. I could not get it to blend the way I wanted. Even resorted to watching videos. I will give your technique a whirl and hopefully it will work!!

Now this may be even cuter than the chick and eggs card! It's nice to know I'm not the only one that struggles getting multiple stamped images right, even with clear stamps (and glasses)! Awesome use of your Zigs.
