Hello Crafters! I’m so excited to be back today and I have a new technique to try in your coloring!
When I started working with these super fun products from Stacey Caron’s Wine Country line I had no idea what to do. I’m not a wine drinker and I was a little worried I wouldn’t do them justice. However I’m all about stretching my wings so I thought about the things I love and some things I want to try.
I love coloring and I really want to work on different backgrounds for creating scenes. I decided woodgrain would be too much brown so I decided to try my hand at creating a marble counter top. I selected 3 grays and my colorless blender. I prefer cool grays but you can use whatever you have on hand.
I started with my lightest color and drew in a few sketchy veins. I was pretty apprehensive about putting the veins down. I think with more practice I would be more confident in putting down the lines and that would ultimately lead to a better result.
You can watch the whole card from start to finish in the video below. Watch video tutorial below or on Youtube to learn how to make this project:
What do you think? Did I make it more difficult then it needed to be? Does it look marble-ish? I love the way the corks came out. All that beautiful stamped detail really shines through the simple color palette.
