Card - Amethyst Mist

Hi, As I haven't been able to do much over the last couple of weeks, I've been spending a lot of time colouring. I mainly used the Copics, but then decided to do some images using Watercolour Crayons. The crayons are used on this card, and as I love all the Sweet Pea stamps, I thought I'd enter it into the "In A Sweet Pea Dream" challenge.

Here is a close-up of the colouring. It is very similar to the Copics, although much softer.

To show you the difference, I've coloured the same image twice - the left with the Watercolour Crayons, the right with the Copics. I've tried to match the colours to give a similar effect.

This is a Stampin' Up image - again the Watercolouring is on the left, and the Copics on the right.

I hope this gives you another technique to try when colouring your images. I'll have some more to show you over the next few days.

Till next time,
Luv, Tereesa.


  1. You know I love them all.....soooooooo Pretty. Can't wait to use my crayons!

  2. Thanks for that its great to see them side by side to see the difference. I like them both. Isn't colouring a great way to relax. Hope you are getting lots of rest and recovering well.

  3. Your watercoloring is marvelous!!! It has indeed given our beauty a real softness. I truly adore the look!!!
    Thanks for joining us for the first challenge at “In A Sweet Pea Dream” and best of luck! I hope to see many more from you in future challenges.
