Color Throwdown 100


I've been so excited for some time to work on this challenge... I've been visiting all the blogs and have been so impressed by all the talent and inspiration. I found that I loved these colors but had a hard time finding any patterned papers that really showcased all of them. I was glad when I finally found this dotted paper with all the colors so nicely done.
I tried a new technique on the coloring of my stamps. I used a blender pen to pick up just a bit of ink from some chalk ink pads. At first the ink was dark and bold but as you worked it more, it became muted and lighter. A nice technique for a quick coloring job on small areas. Tried it on a larger area and it didn't work as well.... Live and learn, right? That's what it's all about!
