New Digital Stamps: Bella, Heart of the 90s & Gabbie the Orchid Faery

posted in: Creativity, DT Inspiration, News | 10

What era claims your heart?

The 90s were an interesting decade for me, the last decade of my youth; I met my first husband, started having kids, discovered the internet. Although there are eras I never lived in that I wish I could experience, my life was heavily defined by the culture of the 1990s. My favorite music artist is Tori Amos with artists of the era like Björk, Ani Difranco, Liz Phair, Bikini Kill and Hole still filling my most listened to playlists. My So-Called Life and Daria were two of my favorite shows as a teenager and I was able to enjoy at least a few years when Mtv still played music videos 😉 So.. this week Bella, Heart of the 90s is a little homage to the decade that defined me. I hope you enjoy!

Tips, Tricks & Color Palettes

I thought I would make it easier for you to hang on to these color palettes by putting them into images you can pin to your color palettes board on Pinterest. You are welcomed to share these on your blog or social medias =) Here is my Pinterest board for color palettes in case you’re interested.

If you have Promarkers instead of Copics, I found a handy color comparison tool that you can use to convert these colors to their Promarker equivalents. I haven’t found anything similar for Spectrum Noir markers just yet but if you know of one -please- comment below with the URL. It would be wonderful if everyone could use these color palettes.

TIP: Make sure your blush is blended out a little better than mine here! haha

I’ve been trying this webcam for the coloring videos but I can’t get a sharp focus with it 🙁 It is faster than my digital recorder but it looks like I will be going back to the digital recorder as the quality is so blurry here.. However, for now, relax with some Tori Amos (if they don’t mute the video anyway!) and enjoy this slightly blurry speed color for Bella, Heart of the 90s.

Gabbie the Orchid Faery

I am going to try to do more colored pencil coloring this year. I love coloring with colored pencil but it can be time consuming compared to markers, so I tend to go for the markers as time is something I seem to have less and less of. I am not quite confident in my colored pencil skills just yet but when I am comfortable that I can give you a color palette that doesn’t include loads of mistakes I will start adding palettes for Prismacolor pencils as well. Maybe 😉

Tip: Use your white pencil to burnish highlight areas. If you’ve built up enough areas, it won’t take the highlight down to white. Instead it will lighten and soften the colors you’ve built up for a natural highlight.
