Isn’t Nacho THE cutest dog stamp evah! He’s new from Stamping Bella…and I just adore his puzzled expression! I think I look like that a lot of times. Say whaaaa?

Coloring Nacho

I wanted to test out some things with the Zig Clean Color Pens….lots of you have been asking for more info on them and why certain things aren’t working so well for you. So today I have two more tips:

  • Try some coloring with large images, and see if that makes a difference. Coloring this large dog was much easier than some of the small images I’ve worked on.
  • See the video for some ideas of what happens to a few of the colors with water…that might help if you’ve had a couple surprises!

Check the video out below, or click HERE to watch in HD on YouTube.

Here’s a nice closeup of the texture when you don’t use water – and just how hard it is for me to stay in the lines, apparently!

And the version with water and a brush – yeeep! More practice, ma! Nacho went ghost-like on this one. LOL!

So as you can see – you aren’t alone if you’ve got a few challenges. I’ve been doing much more practice since shooting this video a few weeks ago (yes, I’m ahead! woohoo!), and I can definitely say practice helps. Keep on working at it, you can do this!
