Teddy Bo and a Splash

Oh, I've done it again!  Yep!  I've learned that pencil and Gamsol really blends outward from the image so well, I may have to permanently switch from copics at least for this purpose!  Who says you have to only use one medium anyway! I'm loving the greys in pencil especially and the shading!  Below I'll show you what I've done for the watery looking bubbles!

Challenges entered:
Little Darlings - Polka Dots
Simon Says - Animal Antics

Be sure to check out the new graphics available this week in the store!  Don't forget the sale ends this week, so get your favorite graphics now!


After the dimension liquid was added to each of the circles made with DP, I sprinkled glitter into the gel before it dries!  This gives the illusion of watery bubbles!  And I cracked out the old tiny alpha stamps for this project too!  Anyone remember these?


I've used the colored pencils again instead of the copics and I've decided that I simply love the grey's in pencil and that the shading around graphic images is much simpler in pencil than copics in my impression!  Little circles outward gives the look of real shade.  I'm still learning, and I haven't replaced my copics (especially skin tones) but on animals, I'm getting the hang of it I think?  Hope you enjoy it!
