Shades of Brown

From my last blog I promised to post results from 
stamping images in shades of brown.
Then how they colored!

The 3 shades of brown I choose to stamp:
Memento - Toffee Crunch
Archival Ink - Coffee
Adirondack - Espresso 
(yes, I did go back to my favorite color)

First Shade of Brown - Archival Ink Coffee
Colored using Distress Markers

Second Shade of Brown - Memento Toffee Crunch
Colored with Copic Sketch Markers

Third Shade of Brown - Adirondack Espresso
Colored with Copic Sketch Markers

What did I discover?
1). How important the intensity the shade of brown must be
2). How different the effect of color is when the same shade of
 Copic Marker is used - E81 and E44 basket horn  
3). The impression and detail that the stamp gives after coloring

Cornucopia is a symbol of Abundance
Next images I will stamp using Memento in Rich Cocoa and Espresso Truffle.
 Please comment what your thoughts are on stamping with different colors?
