Spring Bouquet

When I saw the new Spring Bouquet stamp set from Avery Elle, I couldn’t wait to colour the beautiful flowers. One of my favourite ways to colour images at the moment is to use a mix of alcohol markers and coloured pencils, for a no line colouring look. I began by stamping the large bouquet… Continue reading Spring Bouquet

Geometric Pattern with Storyboards

Copics with Coloured Pencils

I was reminded the other day of a colouring technique I used for a card ages ago. It’s no-line colouring with a mix of copics and colouring pencils.

I stamped the images on… Continue reading Copics with Coloured Pencils
