Colored Pencils & Copic's

CIMG6461

Today's Way's to use it challenge was to use colored pencils.  I already stamped and cut out the birds and embossed the background using the new Bird Call folder.  So, I dusted off the colored pencils and went to work.  I used an aqua painter to blend the colors.  The birds are from a soon to be released set from Innovative Stamp Creations called Marvels of Nature II.  I also dusted off my inkworx art gun to spritz close to cocoa ink on the naturals ivory layer.

Here's another sneak peek of a stamp to be released by Innovative Stamp Creations the week of 9/2 called Walk in the Woods.  This one was stamped in Versafine onyx black and colored with copic markers.  The ribbon is May Arts and the philosophy tag is Tim Holtz.
