A big thankyou to everyone who comments on the workshops, we love to hear your feedback. Maria's tip with the blender pen proved to be a big hit.
So before we show you Michele's tutorial, we had better pick a winner of the Digistamp Boutique prize, and that is...
This Week we are sponsored by Sketching Stamper, and remember you have to be in it to win it. Just leave a comment on this post to be in the draw to win this week's prize - we'd also appreciate it if you helped spread the word on your own blog.
Over to Michele...
Well it's my turn this week to show you how I colour my images. This week we are being sponsored by the very lovely and talented Chris of Sketching Stamper and I've chosen Butterfly Fairy for my image. I've been trying out different techniques on how to colour with ProMarkers to get a Vintage style of colouring and I'd like to show you this today.
Steps 2 -4 - I first start off with the darkest shade, which in this case is Coral and I've gone round the edges where I think the shadows will be. Then I use Sunkissed Pink for the next layer and then Blush.
Steps 5 - 8 - Next I use the Warm Grey 4 where I think the shadows will be, then I've then layered with Coral, then Sunkissed Pink and then Almond.
Steps 9 - 12 - For the hair I've used the colours Caramel, Walnut, Warm Grey 4 and I've used these where I think the lights and shadows will be. I've then gone all over the hair using Putty to add some highlights.
Steps 13 - 19 - For the Dress and butterfly wings I've used the following colours in this order Antique Pink where I think the shadows will be, then I've layered then with Salmon Pink and then Baby Pink. Then to add a stronger shadow I've then used Warm Grey 4 where the shadows are and then gone over it again with Antique Pink, then Salmon Pink and then I've gone over the whole areas using Baby Pink
Steps 20 - 25 - For the shawl, belt and butterfly I've first used Gold where I think the shadows are, then I've gone over it using Tulip Yellow. The next step again I use the Warm Grey 4 where I think the shadows will be, then I've used Gold and Tulip Yellow. For the highlights I've used Putty
For the last two steps I've used Cool Grey 3 to go around the image where I think shadows will be and then used my blender pen to soften the shadows a bit more.
And this is the final result.
I hope that this tutorial has given you some ideas on how to colour using ProMarker pens.
Don't forget to come back on Tuesday, to see how this gorgeous image looks on a card.
