Tando Creative - Colouring

Joanne, my DT partner in crime over at Tando, and I have been working on a series of techniques using the FABBY Tando chipboard.  Each Wednesday for the next few weeks we will be posting a different technique and using that in our own way.

To start us off this week we've chosen colouring - there are so many different mediums on the crafting market at the moment, each one great in its own right, but, we don't all like the same thing or finish do we...so, this week I've chosen to use watercolouring pencils and neocolor 11 water soluble wax crayons and Joanne has created a gorgeous wall hanging using copics (pop on over to the Tando Blog and see this beautiful piece).

I just adore the Tando journalling blocks so for each of my pieces I've chosen these as the background.

 This first block has been coloured using the neocolors - these were fab to use and when watered down glided across the white board, the water and colour didn't soak in at all and the results were so striking....the stamped image, the crafter, is by stampotique as is the swirl pattered at the bottom.

Then I created this piece
The backplate is another journalling block from the set and I stamped on a crafty individuals stamp before colouring in....points were highlighted using glossy accents.

Do pop on over to the Tando blog....as well as seeing our post today there is lots of inspiration to be found.

wow Carol I adore that second piece of chipboard and what you have done with it.

The Glossy Accents do make the image 3 dimensional.
