Hello! It's Monday and that means it's time for a post from this month's guest!! YAY! This month it's me, Ellen, and I like to share a little coloring tip and a flip card.
It seems a lot people like how I color the cat stamps, because I get a lot of sweet comments from all of you! That's why I like to share where I got my inspiration for these kittens (stamp sets "Aloha Newton" and "Newton Dreams of London").
As you can see, the coloring is inspired by pictures found on Google. Do you see the similarities? To give the cats fur I use the flicking technique. With this technique you draw a little line upwards from the edges to the inside of the stamp with brush point of your marker. For animals it's important to try to follow the form of the body with your markers. This ensures that the animals will appear more vibrant and fuller.
I created a little summer and rain scene with both cats. The word 'or' on the first page was stamped with the word 'more' from a sentiment from the "Newton's Naptime" stamp set. On the inside I used a sentiment from the "Newton Unwinds" stamp set.
I hope you liked this post! There's more to see next Monday.
