1 stamp 3 ways

**Warning~~ Very photo intensive post!**

For quite awhile I have wanted to take one stamp/image and color it multiple ways so I finally just took the time to do it!

I chose a stamp from the Power Poppy set, Short Stacks.

I colored the first image with prismacolor pencils which was very fun for me. Before I got copics I primarily used prismacolor pencils to color with but never shaded and layered the colors so it was fun to try new techniques.  I used a sketch from Power Poppy for this card~

The next image I colored with Zig Clean Color markers. It was such a tiny area that I was very nervous working with the watercolors but I was pleased with the results and how it really wasn't as hard as I had expected. 

The last image I colored with copics. I tried to keep the colors similar in all 3 images so it could be a fair comparison. I don't know that I have a "favorite" but it's interesting to me to see the differences. 

I'm so happy I took the time to do this as it was so much fun! 

Sorry it's been so quiet on my blog lately. I started my new job and am getting use to getting up early again on the days I work, etc. I won't be working many hours a week so once training is over I should be back to creating like crazy again!!

Have a wonderful day!

I love this idea of using the same image with different mediums. I will have to give it a try. Thanks for the inspiration.
