Digital Coloring

Hello crafty friends! We are almost at the end of 2021 - can you believe it?? Today I have a different sort of project to show you, something that I have been wanting to try for a long time. It is also my entry for this month's Imagine That Digistamps progressive challenge.


So a good long while ago I downloaded the Sketchbook app onto my tablet and kitted myself out with a fine tip stylus. But other than some doodles, I did not get to try digital coloring. But on Christmas day, I decided to try it with this cute Gingerbread girl in a mug for this month's challenge. And a challenge it was. I first had to figure out what pressure I needed on the stylus and then I also had to figure out what "pen" to use and how to blend the colors. But here we have a result.


It still needs a lot of practice and probably some research, but for a first try and using only the trial and error method, I will take it. I still prefer my Prismacolor pencils though!!!

I printed the image out and fussy cut it. I ran a black marker along the cut edge and added it to the bottom corner of a white cardbase. I added a die cut sentiment and some gems to complete my card.

  2. Great start Monica, I haven't had success with a pen, just use my mouse, but a pen to be learned is much better, go for it. A lovely card.

  3. Once again you proved that you are a real computer graphic artist. Without any preparation, you have obtained such amazing color shading effects. I'm sure if you practice a little you will live up to your perfect coloring technique with Prismacolor. I'm so impressed, Monica!

  7. Such a cute card! Thank you sp much for the Christmas card. I love it! My favorite color for Christmas cards is pink. I haven't gotten to make any cards this past year in pink because I was usually doing DT work. This year I'll be able to express myself a little more.
