Last night I wanted to practice coloring again, this time with colored pencils so I printed out a free digital stamp I got from Pinterest and took out my Fabercastell colored pencils. I think I’m getting the hang of these pencils as working with it seem to be getting easier after each stamp. As always, I used baby oil and Q-tips to smoothen and blend the colors. Here’s what I made. Hope you like it!
I’m in dire need of coloring markers coz the one I have here is the Stabilo Power Markers and it’s so difficult to work with. It streaks and bleeds a lot too. 😦 Just look at this!

After A LOT of research from crafters’ blogs my search narrowed to two top markers. Copic Markers and Shinhan Twin Touch markers. Copics cost an arm and a leg and a few extra pounds to top but it’s the best there is in coloring. They say the tip is like a little brush so it’s easy to manage. Twin Touch on the other hand costs almost 75% less than Copics but it’s not as great.
Being a newbie in the crafting world, there are a lot of things that surprise me everyday and one of them is the fact that there are nice crafters out there who give away prizes for free! Well this is the first time that I’d be joining a raffle hosted by Paula and I am so excited I just have to blog this!
I need space to post the new love of my life. Crafting, specifically card making. This just started a month ago but I’m really crazy about it. Friends were even surprised to see what I have made they were like “Really?! YOU made this?” LOL.
A lot of crafters out there have machines and tools but I just do everything from scratch with the use of just 4 craft scissors, a compass for making circles and one black distress ink. I really want to try stamping and embossing but I don’t have stamps yet. I have a few embossing powders and a heat tool. Oh and I have clear ink for stamping too but in all irony I don’t have a stamp.
I’m sure a lot of Filipino moms out there who have time in their hands would want to make something like this too so I’d be happy to make videos of how I managed to make them from scratch.
