Playing with chippy!

Hi everyone, HAPPY NEW YEAR !!!  I hope you've all had a wonderful Christmas, and wish you the best for 2012.  I've been so busy, and haven't updated my blog for over a month, so I have lots to share with you over the next few days.
I had a ball, playing with this gorgeous "Words Or Whatever" Christmas chippy! I pulled out lots of different media, pens, inks, paint, and other "stuff" and started layering. I started with the wonderfully detailed Christmas Stocking and the Candy Cane. I painted them with white paint, but only lightly so you can still see all the details. (The white background will make your colours brighter.)

I outlined the details with Nikko pen so it wouldn't run/bleed when I added water-based paints.

I added Iridescent Medium to the white parts of my candy cane and stocking.

I coloured various sections using glitter pens, and Copic markers (keep this away from the Nikko pen)

I added Smooch to other areas.

I added Smooch ink, & Diamond Dust.

And added Dimensional Magic to highlight certain areas.

I have another tutorial and layout for you which I'll post tomorrow (otherwise this would be the longest post ever!).
I hope you've been inspired to have some fun colouring your chippy.
