Top-Up The Colour

Using pre-coloured digital stamps is a great way to create quick cards, but don't forget that you can add extra touches to the images, such as boosting the colours with pencils and markers. This can be especially useful if your printer doesn't produce nice bright colours and deep shadows.


I printed the coloured version of the Good Friends digital stamp and then added some additional colour with my alcohol markers and coloured pencils, with most of the focus on deepening shadows and grounding the figures.

I don't often use pre-coloured images but I'm going to keep this in mind for next time that I do. Thanks for the tip Beccy.

I used a lot of colored image because I don't like to color but adding shading to a colored image is not a problem....thanks for the tip.
