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.
Well I'm certainly looking forward to seeing Ida's completed card when the new challenge starts on Tuesday.
