Not everything you colour has to actually use colour! Why not try a black and white image or try a Sepia toned image. Let's find out how to colour your stamped images using simple Sepia tones...
Start off by stamping your image using some Memento ink (the ink I always use with my Copic marker projects) onto some smooth cardstock. I chose a light cream coloured cardstock for my super cute "Play Ball!" stamped image.
I began by colouring almost all of my image in using Copic E50 - "Egg Shell". I left the highlights of my objects uncoloured.
I carefully went back over my stamped image and deepened the shadows of my bats and the fingers on my mitt using the E53 and E55 again. I wanted to make my highlights smaller and this also allowed me to blend my deep dark areas back into the lighter areas as well to get a smoother transition of light.
And don't forget about the inside....
Happy stamping and colouring!
