TTC10 - color challenge

There's a new challenge up at the Touch Twin Markers & More Challenge blog - this time we're using our markers to create projects with a specific color combination. We hope you'll join the fun! Huge thanks to Unity Stamp Co. for sponsoring our challenges this month!!

As soon as I saw this stamp image (Your Wings Exist), I knew I wanted to use it for this color combo - I had fun blending the blues and purples to create folds and dimension in her little dress. The pink is in her skin, but mixed a bit with more peachy tones. I used PB183 for the sky, applying it with a waterbrush filled with rubbing alcohol (video tutorial here).

I also used PB183 to color the ribbon, saturating it with spritzed alcohol to blend.

These are the Touch Twin markers that 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 TTC10 and touchtwin. Have fun!

Thanks for stopping by!
