I love coloring with any medium and stamps. I also love a challenge, so when I started seeing multiple posts on Instagram with #thedailymarker30day I wanted to have a closer look. It's a wonderful 30 day coloring challenge by Kathy Raccosin who is a super talented artist. She's hosting it on her blog with inspiration videos and encouragement to have us coloring each day for the next month. No pressure - just to have fun! Gotta love that, so I'm playing along.
I'm not sure if I'll continue posting these on my blog or just stick to Instagram, but I'll keep you posted.
Kathy's example for day 1 used an array of colors and some birds which she totally gave personality to with her special touches.
In order to keep this fun, I promise not to criticize my own efforts. I'm just getting the hang of Copics!
Following the example Kathy gave I've given each owl a pink or peachy belly, used a white gel pen for accents, traced the outline of each image in black, and added eyelids and eyelashes to the Mama owl. She is also glowing with a sparkly layer from a Wink of Stella pen.
This darling family is from the Stamping' Up! set, "Baby, We've Grown."
