I know some of you will freak out, but there is no need to worry when you see this...hehehe. I am also going to get this on video right away, so you can see the whole process.
Right here, I stamped Olivia (available at All That Scrapson August 11) with black stazon on 140lb SU watercolor paper(THIS IS IMPORTANT!!). You need this weight to be able to blend the ink properly. I wanted to see if I could blend the ink the same way as Copics and YESSIREEE! All you need to get these results is your markers, and in this picture, I used the creamy caramel marker to give lowlights to her hair.
Now, you use your barely banana marker to DIRECTLY blend the caramel. Because this is a waterbased ink, it blends the colors to give you your shadows. I know you are freaking out right now, but don't worry, this will not affect your markers. Let me show you after the next step.
Here, for her pants, I outlined the shadow areas with my perfect plum marker. I used the darker plum in a line under her shirt, and on the lines on the side and inseam. I then took my pale plum marker to blend it all together. OK, here is what you need to do after you blend.
Here is the final outcome. Her shirt was always artichoke and then blended with certainly celery. Her cheeks are pretty in pink and blended with blush blossom. I am also experimenting with taking ink away, but that will be on the video.
