Two in one day, again!!
So, E is for Elegant (and/or Elegance) and Eye. I have been thinking for a while about doing some colouring using different media but the same stamp. This was my kickstart to do it! Thanks to the Craft Barn Challenge!
I used the Hampton Art/Graphic 45 elegant lady stamp. She's stamped three times, and then coloured with Distress markers, watercolour pencils, and Promarkers. I kept (ish) to the same colourways, and shading, as far as my supplies would allow.
I (finally) cut into one of my Graphic 45 paper pads for the Ladies' Diary strip on the page behind - maybe now I will start using more of the lovely papers, but I do just like to look at them...
I think this will give me a good reminder of how the various colouring mediums work, and which ink pads to use with which - if I don't write it down, I'll forget! So it is on the back of each of the tags.
