The coloring continues...

By now most of you know that I received the complete set of Spectrum Noir alcohol markers for a belated Christmas present.  I have been coloring some special images and using these as the front of birthday cards.  Link to the 1st project with my new markers.  This time I used another image from the Creative Haven Steampunk Designs Coloring Book.

After I select an image, I photocopy it on 2 sheets of Georgia Pacific #110 premium card stock and 2 sheets of my Pen Sketcher's paper made by Bee Paper (better safe than sorry, I always have another image on hand in case of mistakes).  

So let the coloring begin.  The G.P. paper is where I test the colors.  Then I actually color the image on the Bee Paper.  Here is a list of all the pens I used:

Small Gears HB3, Big Gear DR7; Big Hearts BP7, PL4 & True Black; Watch True Black, PP1,2 & 4,  IG2; Zepplin BGR1, PL1, PP1, BP7,LV3,TB2

Left LG4 & LG5; Middle OR2, PL4; Right LG4 & 5

True Black, IG3, GG2, OR2, PL4, BP7

FS1 & 2

The actual card is 6x6 inches.  The Gears are a pattern from ScrappyDew.  I cut them on my KNK Zing Die cutting machine using Make the Cut software.  The envelope paper is by Canvas Corp. called Lavender & Ivory Swirl.  So here is the completed project.

I love the phrase I found

So what do you think?  I am getting better.  Just starting the Accreditation program, so be prepared to follow my hits and goofs.

Thank you so much for visiting.  Have a great rest of the week!

Bright Blessings, Jana
