I used swift, light flicking motion with the markers and didn't soak the colors in, plus I tried to stay a micrometer (grin) away from the image's lines to make sure no red touched the image outline. Also, I used the deepest, darkest red I had - R59 - because if you are going to confront your fears, you may as well pick the fears you dread the most, right?
So here is the boldest, deepest, darkest red flower I've ever colored in my life. And look Ma, no bleeding. I didn't even need my blender pen!!!! Cause you know what happens when you touch blending fluid with red, right? Yup, let's not go there.
Thank you so much for looking --- wish you were here to fist pump with me, cause RED,
YOU DON'T SCARE ME ANYMORE!!!!! (as much)
