Colorful Leaves in Two Steps

Hi everyone! It's Jill here with a project using Stamper's Big Brush Pens. 

Step One:
Color directly onto a stamp with lot of solid area using Stamper's Big Brush Pens.  Mix and match different colors to add depth to your project. Stamp onto white cardstock.


Step Two:
Color onto outline stamp with Black 199 Stamper's Big Brush Pen.  Stamp directly on top of previously stamped leaves.

For added depth and movement, outline stamped images with a  PITT® Artist Pen in the color of Cold Grey I 230.  Add additional shading to leaves using Art GRIP® Color Pencils.  Color with Stamper's Big Brush Pens onto an acrylic block, mist with water, and then flick this "paint" with a paintbrush onto project.  Finally add a touch of Earl Grey Gelato™ to the edge of the die cut piece by coloring directly onto the paper and blending using fingertip.  

Happy Stamping!
