Good Morning
For my tutorial today I am using one of the 'Emma' images from the 'Empty Pocket Shruggers Digi Set' by Fred She Said Digital Designs.
A fabulous set containing a number of images and sentiments.
I use 'Stampin Up' Whisper White card and print my images with an old Epson Stylus R200 photo printer.
I begin to colour all the skin areas using the lightest shade first which is Ivory... I then colour a deeper line with vanilla followed by a thinner line of blush, deepening the colour on the cheek areas. Leaving a lighter area to the centre of the face... I go back to my Ivory marker and colour over the whole area, blending the deeper colours... Next I move onto the hair, using the same method of colouring the whole area and then deepening the colours - I used Pastel Yellow all over...
Then Gold, Sunflower and Caramel... Onto 'Emma's' jumper - I coloured the stripes with Salmon Pink & Meadow Green all over...
Deepened the edges with Carmine, Magenta, Lime Green & Pear Green...
Onto her trousers - I used Pastel Blue all over....
Then Cool Aqua & Duck Egg ...blending with Pastel Blue
Onto the shoes - I used Satin, Tan, Caramel and Cocoa...
And finally to finish my image I outlined with Warm Grey 1 and added some highlights with a white gel pen...
I hope you have enjoyed my tutorial today and remember to check back on Tuesday for the new challenge and to see my completed card.
Hugs Emma x
