I have a fun, colorful sample to share with you. I'll confess...you may have seen this design before. It seems like my mojo is on vacation right now, and I'm struggling a bit. As a result, I turned to my Instagram feed for inspiration.


The images are easy to color using your favorite coloring mediums. I used Copic Sketch Markers in Warm Grays; 00,01,03,05 along with BG49, YR68, N8 and E93. I finished the image with a few highlights using my white gel pen.


To create the background I used one of my favorite stamping techniques, random stamping. I have a video on how I approach random stamping on my Youtube Channel. Now to do my random stamping I used Simon Says Stamp Pawsitively Saturated Ink Pads. I have them linked below if you want to check them out.
