Hi there and welcome to another Weekend Workshop, thankyou to everyone who entered last week's Digi Friday giveaway, and thankyou also for all the lovely comments about Debbi's tutorial, we can't wait to see her colouring tips being put to good use.
So, before we get on to this week's tutorial and sponsor, you'll want to know who won the fab prize from Fred, She Said.... so the randomly chosen winner is ....
congratulations, please email Debbi so she can sort out your prize for you.
So this week our fab sponsor is Doodle Palace and Denise has done a super cute colouring tutorial for you
Prize details to follow
So without further ado, over to Denise for her tut.
For my Digi Friday tutorial today I am using a super cute image by Doodle Palace called ‘bunnies & strawberries’
I have printed my image out using my Epson inkjet printer onto 225gsm smooth white card. You can click on the pictures for a closer look.
This is the image before I begin colouring with my promarkers (see how cute it is):
In the first picture I have completely coloured the leaves with meadow green and the strawberries with red:
Next I add shading with apple on the leaves and berry red on the strawberries. Don’t panic if you think it looks too harsh when blended it will look fine:
Then I added a touch of leaf green to the leaves and ruby to the strawberries for added depth before blending them all together with my original colours (meadow green and red):
As I wanted to keep my bunnies white I just added highlights with ice grey 1 and shaded their ears with pastel pink:
My next job was to colour the ground with meadow green and I added shading with apple:
I did the same for the sky with powder blue and shaded with pastel blue (once again don’t worry if it looks a little ‘blotchy’ it will even out once blended):
Finally I blended the ground and the sky with the original colours (meadow green and powder blue):
As I will be cutting out the image I didn’t colour the whole of the background in. If you want to add clouds you could blend out some of the colour with your blender pen. I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial - don’t forget to check back on Tuesday when I will be using this image on my card.
Hugs, Denise x
