Colouring video (pencils) Penguin Candy Cane

It is time for my first colouring video using pencils. It is nothing fancy and I don’t feel ready to talk you guys through it yet, as I still haven’t coloured up loads of images using pencils, but you can watch me colour and hopefully pick up a trick or two along the way. You can watch as I colour up this entire image by Whimsy Stamps called Penguin Candy Cane (digital stamp). It is also available as a rubber stamp here.

I have used the digital stamp version and printed it out on Bazzill cardstock in the colour Kraft. And as you can see in the video I’m not exactly crazy about sharpening my pencils constantly. I think it works well enough like this and it means I can keep my pencils for longer.

To show how this could look as a completed Christmas card, I’ve made a very simple one.

I have used Prismacolor Premier pencils and the colours are:

White: PC938
Orange: PC1003, PC118, PC122, PC947
Grey (cold): PC1059, PC1060, PC1061,
Black: PC1063, PC1065, PC1067, PC935
Grey (warm): PC1072, PC1074, PC1076
Blue: PC1087, PC1024, PC1025, PC1101, PC901
Purple: PC1026, PC956, PC1008, PC996

Here is a quick photo of the colours I used to colour this image:

Colouring video: Poinsettias and Pomegranates

I have a new colouring video for you today where I have used the Power Poppy stamp Poinsettia and Pomegranates. This is available in both clear stamp and digital stamp on their website. Coincidentally it’s actually on a sale right now when I’m posting this up. The focus here is primarily on colouring using red as well as how to get dimension on the layers by adding shadows.

There is no audio for this video, but I am really hoping to get that added on the next one again! Anyway, here is the video:

This is how the card I made with this image looks:

Colouring video – Molly Celebrates

It is time for another colouring video. I have coloured up a stamp by Tiddly Inks called Molly Celebrates. This one was meant to have audio, but when the PC broke after I’d lost my voice for over a week, I kind of just gave up, so I decided that in order for this to be up anytime soon, I’ll do it without the audio.

This video shows how to do red wavey hair that has a lot of little details, as well as how you can easily draw a pattern onto a dress or other things. As this is a digital stamp you can easily colour it up in the size you prefer.

And the card I made using this image? It looks like this and you can find its blog post here.

Colouring video: LotV Stargazing

I have another colouring video for you today. This time I’ve done a pretty quick one. I wanted to show that it’s not that important to stay within the lines or colour up carefully to get a good result. Scribbling can be a great way to do a sky, for example, and how you can quickly get a snowy effect on your image. By colouring up the image and giving it a background, you have a pretty quick and easy clean and simple card if you do it in a bigger size, and a great image for the centre of the card if you do it a bit smaller. Digital stamps are great that way. I will post the card up in a couple of days.

There is no audio for this video.

Colouring video: LotV Bunnies Decorating Tree

Today there is a new release full of Christmas stamps over at Lili of the Valley so for that occasion I’ve made a new colouring video. I have coloured up the stamp Bunnies Decorating Tree. As these are digital stamps you can resize them (do make sure it’s proportional, though) to whichever size you fancy. I have mine here approximately 8 cm by 7 cm for the print and if you include the white area around what I’m colouring up then that is 10.5 cm by 10 cm. Just to give you an idea. For this colouring I’m mostly focused on traditional Christmas colours using some of my favourite colour combinations.

There is no audio for this video either. I simply didn’t have time to get that done as well for this release, and I’m sure the baby would try to get her opinions in, too…

I have not made the card with this image yet, but I plan to have it done and posted up on the blog next week.

Oh, and yes, I know my markers are in desperate need of a clean, but I really wanted to get the video done for today. So, yeah, priorities!
