Usually I color my images in photoshop, sometimes with watercolor pencils or distress markers.
I also do some watercoloring. I didn't have any alcohol markers until this past week. I purchased a set of 72
spectrum noir markers (copics are just to expensive for me, sadly).
I followed all kinds of tutorials on you tube and practice on a few digital images. It isn't easy, I must admit.
I'll be learning by doing it.
My first spectrum noir colored image is on this card. It's a digital image from Birdie Brown.

The paper and thanks stamp are from Stampin'up!
I thought it was funny that the bear would lose some of the apples he was carrying.
The sentiment is stamped with Versamark and heat embossed using seafoam white embossing powder.

For the layout I used this weeks sketch at case this sketch
