The Daily Marker 30 day colouring challenge #19

The Daily Marker 30 day colouring challenge #19


Day nineteen of The Daily Marker 30 day colouring challenge. I appear to be going through a phase of things not working out as planned. On the plus side, this does mean I’m getting better at coming up with fixes.


The plan was to heat emboss the stamp in gold and do a watercolour rainbow with the rings. Unfortunately the watercolours I chose to use, well, they have their uses, but this wasn’t one of them: the colours were very washed out at any reasonable dilution and didn’t spread nicely on the wet paper. Not being at all happy with the result, I sprayed down the paper, blotted off as much paint as I could and left it to dry, while contemplating whether I could rescue it.

Once it was dry, I got out my inktense blocks — as I can be sure of a rich colour from them — and painted the rings in black and various shades of yellow. And then I doodled all over them in white and black.
