For these, I used my Tombow markers to “paint” the image. A wash of light gray to block out the image, with darker shading added. . . almost like a watercolor painting! Since I didn’t sketch the image first, these were very loose and quick – they took between 2-3 hours for the whole lot, drying time included.
This time I used kraft paper art cards. They stood up to the water-based markers very well, even with blending and layering! The manila card I used the next day didn’t stand up so well; I’ll post that card later.
My favorite part was adding the fairy-dust-like white sparkles and wind with the Sakura Gelly Roll pen. Somehow my cards don’t seem finished without a little sprinkle of white!
And with this batch, my Inktober count is up to 17 / 31. We’re getting there!
