That miniature snowman is adorable! I love snowman! I have a question for you…when you are watercoloring with Tombow’s – you use watercolor paper and what type of ink? Do you use Stazon? How do you use different colors without running them?

Hmm, a question… You use tombow markers, I have stampin’ up markers, but I never have luck with marker to paper. It seems that they should be able to be used that way. I have used them very successfully directly on my stamp and then huffing or misting. I just don’t understand why I can’t seem to blend color or work the color on paper. Any thoughts? Oh, and thanks for the opportunity at such wonderful blog candy.

I have subscribed to you on my Google REader. What great blog candy. I have never used chalks before. Is that just another name for oil pastels? And how do you set them so they don’t smear?

I use Tombow markers at times they leave very distinct lines when using instead of blending? AM i doing something wrong, are some colours more blendable than others.
DO you ever use regular markers in your art, using coloured pencils to add shading? ANd if so what are your favorite markers?


PS Have you been nice to pigeons?

I am always up for learning more about coloring images. I still color like a kindergartner and when I do try to do some shading or something creative it ends up a mess, so I go back to the easy way out! I am looking forward to your coloring tricks and tips!

Your tips were great yesterday!! More Blog Candy!! You rock girl! 🙂

So I had asked previously how you get your images to look like that little extra has been done to them… now I would like to know do you prefer markers or pencil crayons? I have pencil crayons and can’t decide if I should get some copics. My LSS is waiting for their back order of copic (apparently they the scrapworld has depleted them!! lol…what did they think would happen??)anyhow….so do you use markers or pencils more??

I just found your blog and I think I will continue to visit it often. I can’t seem to get the effect I want when I emboss. I could use some pointers. And I agree with Ila who suggested a tutorial on shaped cards. I think that would be very helpfull.

I too love your art. My question is I’ve seen using prisma colored pencil and blending them with gamsol. I’d love to learn how to do this. I love your blog.

Sheryl H said:

Hi — I haven’t been to your blog for a few weeks but now have it on my favorites list. Your tutorials look wonderful and I will have to go back and really study them. Also enjoyed your comments on how you manage to make a card a day — the comment about hoarding definitely hit home — I will have to refer back to that one! Couple of questions/tutorial ideas: Chalks — when instructions say to use chalks to colour your image, are they meaning chalk pencils or the chalk squares or pastels — and how to colour with them? I also enjoy seeing different ways to use the same stamp.

I love your blog and loved the tips you gave about making a card per day!!!
Very clever!!!!!!
I also Loved the blog candy you are offering!! Very generous!!!!!

I love any tutorials, I love seeing how others make their cards…specially unusual hapes or folds…..
Since we can’t a lot of materials here, I get confused some times about perfect pearls……Glimmer mist…..and other kinds of paints….something explaining differences betweens these pigments would be great too!

hugs and best wishes

Hi Beth, I know I’ve commented already, but I thought of a tutorial I’d really like to see–hopefully someone hasn’t already mentioned it! I saw you using the color wheel at oneo fthe crops we were at. I thought that it was such a great idea & would help me with coloring. So I went out and bought one, thinking there would be specific instructions inside, but they were unclear to me. Can you do a tutorial specifically on how to use the color wheel and how it can be used to help you make color choices? I’d love to see it!

When I emboss, I usually have tiny specks of embossing powder on my cardstock. I have tried an embossing buddy, a tiny paint brush, and a dryer sheet. Still there are specks in places. What am I doing wrong? Thanks for the advice!
