CTMH Technique Blog Hop ~ Marker Madness

Welcome to the newest Technique Blog Hop! This month we are featuring our fabulous
ShinHan Markers! They color so smooth and without lines, blending perfectly!

If you've come from Danielle Wagner's blog you're on the right path. Just keep clicking on the link in each post to continue along the path.

I used the current Operation Smile stamp set called True Love. The little kids are so cute and the sale of this stamp set will donate $7 to help with cleft lips and palates in children!

 I simply colored and shaded with the markers. It's easy to add the shading by simply coloring on top of where you've already colored to add a bit darker tone for the shadow. Another tip is to add a bit of a shadow under the images to "ground" them. Otherwise they look like they are floating in space. I used a water brush and some Whisper ink for the shadow so it would be subtle. You can see the shadow a bit better in the second photo.
