Bella Color Challenge #34


I usually stamp an image a few times when taking it out to play, so this one was already waiting for me by the time I got around to making my card for the bella color challenge. I wasn't sure the colors would really 'match' the theme of the card at first but now I think it went pretty well. Not all undies are pink, right? ^_~ Anyway, to answer a question a few ladies have been asking, all my images lately are colored with CTMH markers. I do wish I had copics :D But they will have to wait for now. Water based markers like to leave streaks, so to get that to not happen I just make sure I color slowly and smoothly to let the ink saturate the paper. It may look really dark while it's wet, but when the ink dries it usually looks the color it ought to be ^_~ HTH!

This card is so cute!! Love the undies. You do an awesome job with CTMH markers. Thanks for the tip! If it makes you feel any better, you're not the only one who's waiting for Copics! Some day . . . TFS. It's always so much fun to come to your blog to see what you're up to.

I use the CTMH markers too! I actually like them, but then again, I haven't used copics. I did just win about 10 of them on ebay for $20 though Yeah!
