Quick and easy alcohol pens tutorial - Step 1

Hiya crafty friends,

I don't know about you, but I could spends hours colouring one image with my alcohol pens. I love colouring as I find it very relaxing, but I decided to challenge myself and simplify a technique to use when I want to do a image in a quicker time (because believe me I will still spend ages on other images...well it is my stress busker).

I always to tend to work in groups of three for each colour I use, a dark, medium and light.

So I thought I would video my challenge for you all to see how I get on. I decided to colour a Gorjuss stamps as they are one of my faves. Today I will share with you step one, which will be followed for the next few Wednesdays with the subsequent steps.

I am starting with the 'dress' today and I will be using using Promarkers, but Clare has a fantastic collection of Spectrum Noirs in her store, which will work just the same.

Going by the Spectrum colour chart, here are the nearest eqvilents I could see

Dress
Promarkers

Spectrum Noirs
Aubergine
PL5 (81) Purples
Amethyst
PL3 (85 Darks
Orchid
PL1 (147) Pinks






Tights

Black
True Black (120) Essentials
Ice grey 1
IG (CGO.5) Cool Greys
And always stamp your images with Memento Ink, as this ink will not run when coloured on.

Right, on to the video...
