Just Coloring

Haven't made many cards lately, but I have been coloring up a storm. I just love my Copic markers so much that I stamped bunches of my images and colored them. Then I started wishing I had something bigger to color so it would not be finished quite so fast. You know, something that takes a little time, effort and a little more concentration. In that quest I ventured over into deviantArt and looked around. Lo and Behold, they have a group named Color-Me-Club where people upload images they drew and other people are free to download the images and color them. And so I did.


Here is the first image I colored - drawn by a girl from Lithuania. I'm not 100% satisfied with my work, but she was very pleased with it.


I am also working on another picture I downloaded. This is a WIP image - I am still working on deciding what colors to use for her hair.
I originally chose the mermaid image so i could use her on the Copic Markers Twitter Theme Thursday Tweets, but since I am having so much trouble figuring out my hair colors I decided to CASE an image I saw on splitcoaststampers. Here is a link to the post where I got my inspiration for the next image: Splitcoast Gallery and here is what I did freehand (used Copic markers and a Faber Castell drawing pen) and tweeted for Theme Thursday:


So, while I may not post a card a week (or even a month - lol) I'm not just vegging out on the sofa lost in TVLand. I am keeping myself sufficiently entertained! :)

  1. I loved seeing your coloring projects today! And I had to laugh at your statement in the sidebar about your husband selling your craft supplies for what you told him you paid for them, too funny!

    I'd like to talk with you about making a sample card for a future Operation Write Home challenge. You can contact me at janethunnicutt(at)yahoo(dot)com

    Thanks! jan
