Easy Nuvo Alcohol Marker Spot Colouring
Hi there, this is Bibi Cameron here and today I'm sharing a video with a very easy card making idea using beautiful and versatile images from the latest Tonic Studios release called the Stamp Club.
Add a dark colour (436) on the base of the flower petal. Then blend a lighter colour (433) towards the oposite edge of the petal.
For the yellow flowers, I started by applying a light colour ( 401). Then I added a darker brown colour to add contrast (478).
You can change your mind any moment and add a darker colour over a light colour but you might not be able to do the oposite.
Blend a lighter shade (Lilac 433) into the dark colour (purple 436) . You can add colour in circular, linear or flicking motion towards the desire area.
I did this in circular and liner motion for this sample.
Add colour to the center of the flowers. I used yellow (389) but you can use orange, browns or even black.
die cut the coloured image using coordinating dies.
Alternatively, you can also stamp a matching envelope using stamps from Tonic Stamp Club - October 2020
Thank you for having me today
Start by choosing a light, a medium and a dark shade of the same colour.
Be aware that you can use only one colour or two similar colours as I did today, or you can use three, four, five or as many colours as you can blend on a single area of your project.
If you aren’t sure about the shades you want to use for your artwork it is ideal to start applying light colours and build up the colour from there.
When you start by applying darker shades of colour this will help you to save ink and time. You will be also more efficient when colouring from dark to light using alcohol markers but this also depend on the look and feel you want to achieve.
To get a light colour at the edge of your images here is a tip: do not add colour at all. You can also use the blender pen to lift the colour, or use a very light colour on that area.
Colouring is all about preferences and style. You can colour an image by filling it with little dots, you can apply a solid colour, the sky is the limit! Do not limit your creativity.
I’ll invite you to be more intuitive and to avoid overthinking when colouring.
