Some Smooches to Paper Smooches

Coloring transparent images can sometimes be tricky.  I find people tend to use too dark of colors and then forget to add back the highlights.  I thought I would have some fun with this clear set “Best Buds” from Paper Smooches.  For this stamp I stamped it in a light color so the lines weren’t the most prominent part of the image.  Coloring “no-line” makes coloring transparent much easier.

Paper Smooches Transparent Coloring

If you look closely you will notice that the stems end at the top of the water and then slightly shift over before continuing into the water. I believe this might be called refraction of light.   You will also notice that the stems within the water aren’t as crisp and vibrant.  this is caused by the water defusing the color.  Keep all this in mind when coloring transparent objects.

A big shout-out to Paper Smooches for joining us last year as a sponsor for Copic Boot Camp!  Everyone received a full clear stamp set to create with.  I was super thrilled to be able to receive this one.

You can head over to Paper Smooches to pick up this set for yourself.
