Hi gang! I'm back with a little more love to share with you featuring this month's key ingredients kit from Taylored Expressions. I was so excited to finally get my hands on this Love Bugs set (with coordinating die) in time to use with this months kit. It sold out when it came out last month almost immediately when it was released!
Again, I was initially terrified to used black & white patterned paper for my inspiration, but with the bright ribbon and card stock base, it quickly put my fears to rest. I stamped the bugs on to Copic X-press It paper and colored it with various colors coordinating colors. If you've never tried this paper for coloring I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT. I absolutely love it. I'm by no means Copic certified, but if you want to look like you are, this paper will help!! (hee-hee) It takes the effort out of trying to blend your colors for you.
It also helps build your confidence with your coloring. And dont' forget, practice helps! When I feel like my mojo just isn't there, I will sit and just color images for fun. The "kisses 5 cents" was handwritten with a Copic multi-liner pen. For the wings I added some Smooch Glitz to the wings for a bit of sparkle and for their glowing bottoms I used some pearlescent chalks.
