CTMH Technique Blog Hop ~ Color Your World

Welcome to the June Technique Blog Hop!
This month we're featuring the technique of coloring! This could be done with watercolors, pencils, ink, water brushes, etc. There are lots of ways to color your images.

If you've come from Catherine Nowak's blog you're on the right track. Just keep clicking on the links at the end of each post.

Here I have used the Darling Dinos stamp set. Isn't this little guy cute? I stamped in Archival Black ink since I would be doing a wet type of coloring. First I used my watercolor pencils to color the dino. After coloring him in I then took a waterbrush and lightly brushed over the penciled area to smooth out and blend the colors. This also helps create the shadow areas. It's hard to see but I also used a bit of grey pencil under the dino. This creates a shadow and grounds the image so it doesn't look like it's floating in the air.
