Molly Bloom and Promarkers...

Hi All,

Well after a lovely 3 day weekend, I'm back in the shop creating. Today, I decided to give the Molly Bloom stamps a whirl and have put together a step by step colouring guide for those of you who want to get started with Promarkers.

Step 1.

Stamp your desired image using Memento Black Ink onto Smooth White Cardstock. Here I have used Farmyard Molly and Hay Bale.

Step 2.

Colour the Hay Bale using Pumpkin, Gold, Sunflower and Cocoa:

 First, apply Pumpkin to the darkest (shadowed) areas
 Then use the Gold marker to colour over the pumpkin and out another 1/3 of the way. If you can still see a line between the Pumpkin and Gold, use the Gold in small circles over the line.
Next colour the remaining hay and over the pumpkin/gold to blend.

Skin - See Step 3.

The rope can then be coloured with Cocoa.

Step 3.

Colour Molly using Terracotta, Apricot, Saffron, Vanilla, Lush Green, Apple, Orchid, Lavender and Pastel Pink

Skin - Start with Apricot on the shadowed parts of the face and arms.
           Next, use Saffron to blend, leaving a small part of the face and top of the
 Face - Add Pastel Pink to the cheeks (spotty area) and complete the face using
            Vanilla. (go over all skin areas with Vanilla to complete the blend)
 Top - Use Lush Green to colour the majority, leaving areas along the top to add          
Top -   Colour over the lush green and remaining white areas with Apple.

Shoes - Colour the toes Lush green and the rest of the shoe Apple.
 Trousers, Socks and Handscarf - Use Orchid for the darkest areas...
....then blend using Lavender
