The beautiful images in All Ye Faithful have just been calling out to be colored. If you follow me on Instagram, you have already seen the wise men but I kept playing around with this to see what would happen. I got my Zig Clean Color Markers a couple of weeks ago and have been working to improve my coloring skills. Images like these are so fun and allow room to play. Watercolors in particular are pretty forgiving since you can “erase” many mistakes with a little water! The coloring uses many (many) of the colors from the 48 pack of the Zigs and I just played with things until they seemed right. I added a little big of Night of Navy ink to the background then spritzed with water to get the effect you see. The navy was added over some other colors from the Zigs. I pulled out the Misti again for this one since I wanted to be able to repeat the alignment of the stamps easily. Once you have them right, the Misti allows you to create multiples! Love that!
I hope you find some inspiration to head to your craft room and try some coloring! I’ll be back tomorrow with another sketch from Freshly Made Sketches. Until then, thanks for stopping in!
