TTC01 - People

The first challenge is being posted today at the Touch Twin Markers & More Challenge blog - so exciting!! For our first challenge, we're using our markers to color people. The team will be sharing 'color maps' of what colors we used in our posts throughout the week, so you can get an idea of combinations, etc. We hope you'll join the fun!
This image is from Inky Antics and it's called "Already Packed" - for all the traveling and moving we do, it was a "must have" for me. The marker colors I used are listed below. The background panel is stamped with a newer Cover-a-Card stamp (Passport Stamps) from Impression Obsession, and the sentiment is from smARTworks.For the blue background coloring around the image I used rubbing alcohol in a waterbrush to blend the Touch ink, almost like watercoloring. I scribbled a little ink on a plastic palette and picked it up with the brush - it takes a little practice, but I like the softness of the edges this way.

Here are the colors I used:

You can visit the Touch Twin Markers & More Challenge blog for all the details if you'd like to play! Don't have a blog? That's OK. Just post to any online gallery with the keywords TTC01 and touchtwin. Don't have Touch markers? That's OK too for now. Starting in January we will require using our markers, but for now you can use any coloring medium. Have fun!

Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Dina,I adore this card. Because I'm a former Navy wife I understand moving *laughing* In fact, I'm not sure we have stopped yet! Once you get the bug - look out! *laughing*

    We are leaving Wednesday for a week in DC. My husband has business and I will get to visit with all the kids :)

    Dina, your cards and techniques are wonderful! Thank you for sharing your talent with us.

  3. Really love your card Dina. Ever since you announced this new challenge using ShinHan I have been hanging out for it to begin.

    Love the Blog and I am wanting to try and find out where I can get more markers from some of the ones I bought at the begining of the year are starting to run out*blush* because I use them so much.
