Weekend Workshop #23

Hi there, its Friday again so we're back with another Weekend Workshop, this time from the very talented Ida. But before you see that, we'd just like to say thankyou once again for all the fabulous entries to this week's challenge of Grass & Canary. The colours are certainly not in everyone's comfort zone but you've all done a fab job of using those bright cheerful colours, they certainly brighten up the horrible weather we've been having. The challenge ends at 9am on Tuesday, so you've still got plenty of time to enter.

Over to Ida...

Welcome to this weeks WEEKEND WORKSHOP. I will be showing you how I have coloured my image for my design team card - week 25.

*click on the pictures for a larger view*

Image used: byEVY nr 13.
Colours used: Pastel Blue, Ice Grey 1 and 2, Tan, Cocca, Walnut, Crimson,Terracotta, Apricot, Honeycomb, Bright Green and Forrest Green.

Step 1: Stamp the image onto cartridge paper

Step 2: I have added some shadows to the snow family using PASTEL BLUE, using line strokes and not circular motions.

Step 3: I have added a grey shadow around the whole image using ICE GREY 1.

Step 4: I have colured the parents hats with CRIMSON red on the outer edges of their hats.

Step 5: I have gone over the whole area of the hat one more time using CRIMSOM and added shadows with TERRACOTTA.
Step 6: I then add BRIGHT GREEN to the scarf's where I want the shadows to appear.
Step 7: I then add FORREST GREEN as a shadow colour in the outlined areas I coloured with BRIGHT GREEN in the previous photo.
Step 8: I have added the outlined areas of the kids's scaft's using CRIMSON.
Step 9: I blended the scarf with another layer of CRIMSON.
Step 10: And then I TERRACOTTA to make the shadows and add a layer of HONEYCOMB to all the noses on the upper side of the noses.

Step 11: I colour in the outer edges of the sign with WALNUT and add a layer of APRICOT underneat the layer of HONEYCOMB coloured in the last step.
Step 12: WOOOPS this one slipped in between.
Step 13: I then coloured a bit closer to the middle covering the outer edges with COCCA
Step 14: Then I blended both layers of brown with TAN, colouring the whole area.
Step 15: I wanted a bit darker shadow under the image so I coloured a stripe with ICE GREY 2 to give it a bit more depth.
Step 16: I also wanted a bit more shadow on the snowmen so I went over all the inner shadows of them with PASTEL BLUE, aslo adding a shadow I forgot in step 2 (above the sign on the snowmama) And finally I add some white highlights on various places of the image.

And here's my finished result ready glue on to my card:

Thanks for looking and have fun colouring!!
