I met Alissa on Scrapbook.com. She has a great sense of humor, she's an inspiring runner and a very talented papercrafter. Along with beautiful layouts, Alissa makes STUNNING cards. She is amazing at using colored pencils--not just any colored pencils, but she works her magic using watercolor pencils. She's sharing a really cool tutorial today about how to color images using Loew-Cornell pencils. We're excited have her, please check out her blog, Will Run For Stamps. Take it away, Alissa!
Be sure to check my labels on the left for more tutorials, examples, and ideas.
Step by step with Loew-Cornell pencils.
Digital stamp by Natalie for Whimsy Stamps. Simply adorable!
Started with a nice yellow, light pressure all over.
Same yellow, more pressure at center.
Create more shadows with a darker color.
A bit of orange all over, the center and petals.
Create shading in the center with darker color.
A bit of brown but I don't like it so...
I use my handy dandy eraser!
Trying the center again.
Used these two colors.
My newest favorite trick. Using a weird color like Ultramarine in the darkest corners. Only a little bitty bit.
Good stuff. Digis are compatible with everything, pencils, watercoloring, Copics, chalk. Love my Prismacolor pencil sharpener. I have two good erasers. The plastic one by Derwent and the Artgum is also outstanding.
Finished images with Loew-Cornell pencils. Both are digis by Natalie for Whimsy Stamps.
