Using markers is an interesting one for me. I love the colours and shades you get in markers, mine are Promarkers but I know there's a huge range out there. My problem is my lack of artistic talent. The rules for shading and adding highlights escape me, I can no more look at something and see where the light hits it and where the shadows fall than I can see through walls! Therefore, you talented colourers out there will always get a sincere comment from me when I say 'beautifully coloured' I am in awe of your artistic ability. May be all I need are a few lessons but until then my use of marker
S will be minimal.
After all that, here is my card, made a while ago but never blogged before
I used the set White Christmas. It's great for whimsical little cards like this one.
You can see that the cars are popped up on foam pads. I stamped the cars and trees as one and then fussy cut them out. I think the red car also adds a pop of colour to the chilly blues and greys. I have stayed the falling snow and the trees and then add.ed a brush of colour to the cold sky.
Hope you can see that you don't have to be a colouring whizz to use markers, I think 'colouring in' is something we never grow out of, it's fun and easy.
