To kick off the new year we have a super image tutorial from Michele who has chosen the theme for the challenge that starts on Tuesday 5th January.
There's still a little time to enter our Xmas Extravaganza before 9am on Tuesday - there are lots of fabulous prizes to be won.
Over to Michele...
For my colouring tutorial I've used the gorgeous image from Whiff of Joy Melinda Holding Heart. I've stamped the image onto white paper that is 120gsm using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. As there are too many photos I will put very little text and hopefully you'll be able to get the idea.
For the skin I've used Blush, Sunkissed Pink, Coral & Cocktail Pink - Starting with the lightest first and trying to imagine where the light source is coming from. Then use the next shade and not going as far as the first colour. Keep doing this until you've used all the shades and then go over the whole of that area with the lightest shade again.
For the hair I've used Tan, Cocoa & Chestnut. Then gone all over it again using Almond
For the trousers I've used Tan, Cocoa & Chestnut. Then gone all over it again using Almond
For the cushion I've used Baby Pink, Cocktail Pink & Antique Pink. Then I've gone over the whole area again with Baby Pink.
For the ribbon and frill of the cushion I've used Baby Pink, Lipstick Red & Crimson. Then going over all of the area again with Baby Pink.

To see how the image looks on Michele's card you'll have to wait until Tuesday.
