Today I’m returning to an old love – Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps! I have been completely smitten with their recent releases and particularly the stamp I used on today’s card. Annie Rodrigue is a firm favourite of mine, and I love her darker illustrations the best.
I decided to take some progress photos while colouring Dragon Queen, to illustrate my colouring process when working on an image using the “No Line Colouring” technique. I’ve put together a step by step guide which you will find below, along with the marker colour palette. I hope that you find these resources useful in your own colouring adventures. If you like them, let me know and I will do my best to bring you more in future.
NOTE: this blog post contains some large images.
Isn’t she awesome?
For readers in Canada/US you can of course find the stamps at Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps!
Kraftin’ Kimmie Stamps Dragon Queen was stamped with Memento London Fog ink on my favourite Make it Colour Blending Card before being coloured using Copic markers and Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils. The card is A5 (8″x6″ approx.) size and is top folding. The background was coloured with Copic markers. The sentiment comes in the Dragon Queen stamp set.
I framed the image using Spellbinders Nestabilities Grand Labels Four dies. I embossed the frame with Stampendous Tinsel Red embossing powder. The spider webs poking out from under the frame were die cut using a La-La Land Crafts die. The designer paper came from my scrap drawer, I think it is from the Echo Park Chillingsworth Manor collection.
