New Technique - Stippling Brushes

This week I got two stippling brushes to try instead of the colorbox stylus tool and makeup wedges I've been using to apply color. I really like how you can add just a little color over a large area with the brushes. I found that it was easier to control where the color was going and how much with the small brush. I'm hoping that the brushes will be more cost effective - I've already worn out one of my stylus pads on only a few scenes.

These three scenes were all done with stippling brushes. I experimented with using a gel pen for putting snow on the trees  (I got my inspiration for the snowy scene's background here). All the stamps here are from Stampscapes except for the winter scene - one is an Impress stamp and the other is one from Joann's.
