For this blog I am going to show you a technique that uses both the Dual Brush Pens and Irojiten Colored Pencils. These two colorful products play well together and you get the benefit of quick color blocking with the markers and simple shading to create beautiful images with the colored pencils. This is a perfect project if you are a beginner to coloring your stamped images or Zentangle inspired drawings! Here I have started with a simple flower design filled with tangles drawn with the Mono Twin Permanent Pen.
Next, use light colored Dual Brush Pens and the brush tip to simply fill in the main areas with color. Don’t worry about blending colors! Let these colors dry a few minutes before the next step. The markers used here are: 703, 991, 603, 553, 126 and 195
Now using the Irojiten Colored Pencils, here I am using the Vivid Tones, shade in the drawing to give it depth. Start with using the same colors, for example, the red colored pencil on the pink parts. I then add blue for the shadows on all the parts to create deep shadows.
