Hi there and welcome to this week's ww. We hope you're not all snowed in - but at least on the bright side of that it gives us more time to craft eh?
Maria has done a fabulous image tutorial for us this week, using one of the Gorjuss Girl stamps from Sugar Nellie.
But before we get to that, remember there is still plenty of time until 9am Tuesday to get your entries in for this week's challenge and the prize is 2 Sugar Nellie stamps.
So, over to Maria...
For my colouring tutorial I chose a palette of pink and green Promarkers, as well as skin and hair tones, including Ivory, Blush, Pastel Pink, Pale Pink, Baby Pink, Cocktail Pink, Antique Pink, Meadow Green, Leaf Green, Chestnut, Umber, and a Blender.
I started by colouring her face and arms with an Ivory base coat.
Then I added Blush to the area that would naturally be in shade.
I added a touch of blush with Pale Pink on her cheeks…
And blended all the coloured areas with Ivory.
I coloured her dress firstly with Pale Pink, then added shadow with Baby Pink.

I used a darker shade of pink, Cocktail Pink, for extra definition, and blended all the colours with Pale Pink.

I coloured the hearts on her dress and her hair ornament with Antique Pink, and then coloured the edges of her wings and her waistband with Meadow Green, with Leaf Green for a touch of shading. I used the Blender to soften the lines of green on her wings, and I coloured her tights with pink and green to match her dress.

Finally, I coloured her hair, first with Chestnut all over, followed by the darker areas (using the inked image as a guide) with Umber, and finally blended it all with Chestnut once again.
I hope that you've enjoyed my tutorial! Please drop by again on Tuesday to see my finished card and all the fabulous ones made by the rest of the Design Team.
Next week we have a sepia tutorial from the fabulous Caryn
