One thing I love about the rubber stamps is their diversity and easy of use on the paper. I’ve never had success printing digital images on kraft paper so you’ll always see me default to a rubber stamp for this technique. For this project, I used Cheery Santa and colored him using my Prismacolor Pencils. This is a love-hate technique for me so I don’t do it very often, but when I do, I always enjoy the bright whites and solid colors.
I think even with the Prismacolor pencils, I tend to color from dark to light. However, on this project, I had many trouble areas – you might night think so, but that’s because I’ve fussed over it enough to make it passable. My last and final resort was to use a blending stub with various types of oils until I found one that worked. Unfortunately, I’ll have to repeat the process as I didn’t make any notes and can’t remember what worked best. But fortunately for you, that means I’ll be coloring on kraft again! LOL
