******************Sue’s Tutorial - Emma in the Strawberry Patch
This weeks sponsor is Tracy from "Fred She Said" when I told Tracy that my theme for this week was Strawberries and Cream she said she would do me a special image and wow what an image it is she is called "Emma in the Strawberry Patch" and she is just too cute. I just hope I have done her justice. Click photos for a closer look Skin I have used oatmeal around the hairline and soft peach on the cheeks and then blended together with blush all over in a circular motion. Dress This time I have used orchid all over then used amethyst in the creases or in the shadow and again blended together with the orchid all over. I try and keep the pen on the papers when I am blending the two colours together and on this one I have blended over the dress twice for depth of colour. Strawberries I have used berry red for the strawberries and bright green for the leave I have also used a little bright green on the berries to add shadow. Petticoat and t-shirt This may be a little difficult to see but I wanted the petticoat and t-shirt to be white so I have just used a little ice grey 1 and then blended with the blender pen. Strawberry patch and ground I have used berry red for the berries bright green for the leaves and sunflower yellow for the flowers, I have then used meadow green to all over to tone the other colours down and colour the rest of the area. I have used ice grey 1&2 for the area around her feet. Hair I wanted Emma to be a red head so I have laid henna and burnt orange down as shown in the first image and then blended together with terracotta. Basket The colours for the basket are apricot and terracotta Highlighting And here she is all ready to make into a card for Tuesday the image on the right hand side has been high-lighted with a little gelly roll white highlighter pen to give it a little lift. Hope you enjoyed this and good luck in the draw. Thanks for looking Sue :o)
I think you will all agree Sue has done a fab job :)
