Splitcoast Tutorial: Coloring Transparent Objects

Here are a couple of samples that I made for Jennie's tutorial on Coloring Transparent Objects! This was such a fun tutorial to follow - Jennie's such an experienced teacher so it was fun to add her to my collection of tutorial authors. :)

The tutorial features balloons, but I wanted to show that it could be used for other objects too... I just didn't have too many to choose from that had overlapping transparent objects! I found this image from Taylored Expressions - maybe tomorrow I'll play around with some masking to expand the gallery a little more.

I colored the image with Touch Twin Markers. The sentiment is from Unity Stamps, and the background panel was one of my test panels for the Stamped Masking tutorial we shared last week.

My second card features an image from A Day For Daisies - I love to peek over there for freebies now and then! I love her sweet and sentimental style. (And now with Evernote I can actually remember what digis I have!) Again, the sentiment here is from Unity Stamps.

Hope you'll give this one a try! xo
Thanks for stopping by!


  1. I just love your glass and balloons. I have been looking for examples on how to color glass so I am pinning this for future reference. You colored both sweet images beautifully.

  2. BOTH are VERY NICE creations Dina, for this tutorial! ;)

  3. Great technique. I especially love the glass. How about sharing more about how you use Evernote to organize your images. I have Evernote and I guess I don't use it as well as I could.

  4. What a great technique, Dina, and I love the glass especially too. Definitely will be thinking about this as I find images that might work! Beautifully done, as always, sweet friend! Praying for you! Big hugs! xoxo
