Hi there! MFT has a new fun feature named JUST ADD COLOR! It gives the participating design team members a chance to showcase colored images with coloring medium of our choice. I absolutely love this idea and I hope you'll enjoy it!

Today, I'm sharing stamp guides for BB Rain or Shine and Too-Cute Turtles using Copic markers. First, I like to mention I'm not an expert in coloring but it's something I really LOVE to do.  

When I use Copic markers I like to wet the stamped image with the lighest shade first. This helps me to get a better blend between the different shades. After I color the image with the light shade, I usually go in with the darkest shade, then the medium shades and back to the light shade. I like to use anywhere from 2 to 5 colors to blend. Sometimes I repeat this process if I want the colors to be darker or if I didn't get a good blend.

I stamped the all the images with Extreme Black Hybrid Ink on Neenah paper.
Copic markers:

Hair for both girls: E41, E21, E23, E25, E29
Face for both girls: YR000, E00, E01, E04 (cheeks R20)
