Tips tricks and techniques Tuesday Count on Me

 Do you ever buy a stamp set just because you saw 1 stamp used by someone ? What they'd done just inspired you so much!! And today's card is featuring that one stamp... the uber cute bear 🐻 😍 from the Count on Me from stampin up stamp set.

The bear has been used by many talented people in so many ways. The look that I have been very drawn to are where the stampers have altered the stamped image. Now I am no artist! I struggle to draw a squiggly line let alone a straight one 🤣 So the thought of altering a stamped image by drawing is a bit scary!!

My first tip is to stamp the image a few times onto scrap paper and just give it a try. As they say practice makes perfect! So I used a pencil and lightly drew in the lines. Once happy with where the lines are I used a black marker pen with a fine nib to draw over them. Once done I erased the pencil lines and started colouring. See the steps below.

Now in the examples below I've used pencils to colour but for the examples above I used alcohol markers.  I like the effect both gave.

For my card I used alcohol markers and a white gel pen to add the details to the bears outfits.

For the card I started by blending a light blue colour all over a mat of card. I then used dies to create a scene for my bears to be in.

I love this card even though it's not my usual style.  I  really enjoyed getting my fashion designer on 😅
