Hello, and welcome to our 'Down Under’ Australasian 'Blog Hop'. If you've arrived here from Lauren Moore - CTMH Craftings, then you're in the right place.
If you've landed here by accident, then welcome to the fun! Please join in by following the link at the bottom of this blog.
In this blog hop, we will be following the theme of 'Down Under', inspired mainly by the March Stamp of the Month, which has lots of iconic Australian animals on it.
If, like me, you are a New Zealander, you will note that the stamp is totally Australian animals, but the blog title is 'Down Under', which is intended to include us kiwis too.
However I imagine I am not unique in the fact that I am a New Zealander (Kiwi) with an extended family of Australians. In fact, I am the youngest of 22 cousins, and the only Kiwi amongst us! Even my brothers are Australian, but being the youngest in my family, I waited until Mum and Dad had moved to Auckland before I put in an appearance...haha.
But the problem I have is that this stamp set, and all the animals and flowers etc. are just begging to be coloured, and I am not that proficient at colouring yet!
But I am learning. And hopefully improving. I also don't have a huge selection of tri-blend markers, so I needed another plan!
So I coloured it in a similar way, using a mixture of the tri-blend markers that I have, and then with the inks, either pewter or mocha for the animals; pine for the ground and bluebird for the sky. I also added some shading, again with the colouring pencils.

I'd love it if you left a comment below, before heading off to Danielle Edwards - Scrappy Chicks.
Thanks for reading.
Cheers for now.
I love how you have coloured the animals and your addition of the Kiwi is adorable!ReplyDelete
Thanks Lauren. I don't really enjoy the colouring, so it's quick and easy :-)ReplyDelete
