Coloring stamps

I use three different ways to color my stamps:

  • Copic Markers,
  • Distress Markers and refill ink
  • Faber Castell pencils.

Most of the time my choice depends on what design paper I’m using for my card. With the Scandinavian papers, like Pion, Maja etc. I love to use the distress inks.

My starter set Faber Castell is very small and pretty simple. I’ve got only this set and a few more specific colors for skin and hair.

Have to practice more and use them more often. Thank you Marrie Banis  for learning me a lot about working with them. Here is Tilda hiding easter egg colored with the pencils

Copic Markers and Sketch markers

Started with a 16 piece case with markers in several colors  to try them out and now i’ve got  more (sketch) markers. Most of them skin and hair colors.  And when I buy new ones its always in coordinating sets.

At first I tried it my self but then I decided to do a few workshop and went to Doe@Ding and Monique Lokhorst was the teacher. I learned a lot from her.  Thank you Monique for the helpful lessons and your patience. Tilda with Mr. Rooster I colored like I learned from Monique.

    Hi Manon, Als je dit ook wil kunnen zou je misschien het beste net als ik ook wat workshops kleuren met distress inkt kunnen volgen bij Monique Lokhorst. Ik heb de workshops gevolgd bij Doe@Ding in Spijkenisse en ik heb er heel veel van geleerd. Bovendien heel gezellig daar 🙂 De hoofdkleuren die ik heb gebruikt voor de haan zijn Tea Dye, Pine Needles en Vintage Photo en ook heb ik de kleuren gemengd.
    Succes ermee!

    O ja, ik heb gebruik gemaakt van de navulflesjes, de distress markers en de inkpads, allemaal van Tim Holtz (Ranger).
