In this first 'class' for coloring with the different color sets of the Spectrum Noir alcohol ink pens, Christina, from Card Making Magic, uses the Ice Greys to color a winter snow scene.

These "shadowing" tips really make the scene come alive instead of being just a flat image on the page. See how she does it in the following video:

Watch on YouTube: HERE

I love how great these colors look for shading things that need to stay looking white! And of course, she finishes off with showing how it looks made into a beautiful card.

These tips and techniques would be the same with any brand of alcohol markers, including Copics, CTMH, and other similar pens. Watching Christina actually coloring and blending these images, gives me much more confidence that I can master coloring with alcohol ink pens, too!

Next up is a tutorial on coloring and texturing animal fur, in the video COLORING CLASS - Browns! Don't miss it!
