The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge - Day 4

For Day 4 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge with Kathy Racoosin.



Teaming up once again with Ardyth of MASKerade. This time we are each using a different Otter set. I am using MFT Stamp's Otterly Love You that I coloured with Prismacolor colouring pencils (that is what we call them in Canada). I finally opened them to colour my otter. They were a Christmas gift from my hubby and for some reason I was afriad to open them--lol.  My initial reaction when I started colouring was this is not as easy as it looks. However as I got going and got a feel for how creamy they are and how forgiving they are compared to other mediums. I still need lots and lots of practice and I have 70 other colours to explore.

My card has the second otter that I coloured on it. The first otter I took about an hour to colour as I was getting to know the lay of the land and I was pretty happy with the way it turned out. When I moved on to my card I used a smooshing technique that Francine Vuillème demonstrated in a You Tube video. Got the background done and cleaned up and placed the otter on the card to figure out where I wanted it to go and apparently there was still a teeny tiny spot of wet ink on the card!


I couldn't let it go and started again. Funny thing I still like the colouring on the first one the best.

That ocean is fantastic, Tracey ... and your little otter is just so sweet ... both versions! Hugs, Anita :)

Your smooched ocean is terrific, Tracey! I would love all that foamy splashy beautiful aqua water if I were an otter! Even if I weren't an otter! You are too much of a perfectionist, my friend! Your otter would have looked right at home with an ocean spray on him - it's what happens IRL, after all, lol!! Hugs, Darnell
