The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge ~ Day 9

Hello Friends! Day 9! We are moving right along! I didn't have much time for coloring this evening but I did get a little something worked up to share with you. I was inspired by a wonderful artist on Instagram who has been sharing her beautiful art using Prisma color colored pencils on Kraft. This is a look that I have admired for some time but haven't practiced very much. I decided that today was the day.

Please click on the picture to enlarge it.

I stamped this cute little Santa hat onto a scrap of Neenah Desert Storm card stock using My Favorite Things Black Licorice hybrid ink. I wanted to compare Prismas and Polychromos, so I stamped the image twice. Then, I just started adding layers of color until I achieved the look I wanted. The Kraft takes A LOT of layers! I need to go back and add more shadows in the dark areas. Then, I'll try coloring it with my Polychromos colored pencils. Fun stuff! Just not enough time to really get into it!

That's it for me. Thanks for dropping in!

I've wanted to try coloring on Kraft, too, but haven't had the chance really. One of these days. Your hat looks great! It'll be interesting to see what you think when you try it with Polychromos as well. Your coloring always looks fabulous to me. Hope you have a great day! Hugs!! :)

This looks so beautiful! I love how the white really pops on the "kraft" base. Very pretty!
Looking forward to the next experiment! Please let me know if you used any blending solvent (OMS).
