lilybooNow over to Denise for this weeks tutorial …………………


Morning crafters for today’s tutorial I am using a super cute image from Lily Boo’s boutique from the ‘birds collection’, there are six images in total and I was really spoilt for choice, but decided to plump for the loved up pair below!


Now before I begin I must apologise for the quality of my printing – I can assure you that the images from Lily Boo’s boutique are outstanding and I’ve personally used them many times before - its a problem with my home printer that resulted in the poor quality/poor colour image :( Please click on the pictures for a better look.

Ok here is the image before I started colouring:

Firstly I begin by using the darkest shade (in this case sky blue and pumpkin):

pic 1

Then I blend inwards using arctic blue and amber:

pic 2

Finally I blend all the colours together using powder blue and gold:

pic 3

Next I start on the bushes using green:

Again blend inwards with apple:

pic 5

Then finally blend all the colours together with meadow green:

pic 6

For their head and tail feathers I used exactly the same colours and blended as before.

Their beaks are coloured with sunflower and tulip yellow and their feet with ice grey 3:

My final touch is to use a sakura stardust pen to colour in the heart:

So that is my tutorial for today. Please check back on Tuesday to see my completed card. Don’t forget to check out Lily Boo’s boutique as they have some gorgeous images.

Hugs, Denise x
