Alternative Coloring - January

You've probably noticed a couple of things if you check out my blog very often.

One - I love to color. 

Two - I mostly color with Copic Markers.

I own several other coloring mediums but just seem to gravitate toward my Copics. There's nothing wrong with that, but I've decided to challenge myself to stretch out of my coloring comfort zone just a wee bit this year. Once a month I'll be sharing a card in my Alternative Coloring series. The only rule is, I must color with something other than Copics.

This month I colored with my Karin Brushmarker Pro Markers.

My favorite way to use them is to add color to a clear acrylic block as well as a droplet of water (separate from the color). I pick up just a wee bit of the water and some of the color and use it as liquid watercolor.

Of course my favorite subject to color with these markers is flowers, so I chose the gorgeous stamp from Unity's Dreamin' Daze stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!

What beautiful colouring Jeanette - these are stunning - well done. I was given so alcohol markers late last year, and am just getting the hang of them now... I think :)
Pencil is probably my favourite medium, closely followed by watercolours
