Now this weeks tutorial is done by Sue C, don’t forget to pop over on Tuesday to see the finished card……………

Hi everyone, my name is Sue and it's my turn to do the tutorial for this week. The sponsor for this week's challenge is Moias Designs and I was lucky enough to be able to choose an image to work with.

1 )This is the image I chose, I thought she was really sweet, hope you like her too !

2 ) Before I start any shading on a project I always have my ProMarker chart to hand and look to see what colours I want to use, and this also gives me an idea of different combinations to try. 3 ) Once I've decided on the colours I will always have a test piece of card to make sure the colours do blend together. 4 ) I always start with the lightest shade and will colour the entire part of the image intended for that colour. 5 ) I then move to the next shade keeping in mind where the light is coming from and where the shadows would be. 6 ) As you can see as you start to build up the colours the image starts to take shape. 7 ) For the hair I use the same principle and decide on the colours and have a test piece to check the colours blend. 8 ) I started with the lightest colour and built up the layers leaving some areas paler so that the the hair doesn't appear flat. 9 ) For the skin I tend to stick to the same colours and start with Ivory and colour in all of the skin sections of the image. 10 ) I then use Blush and go around the edges where the shadows are most likely to be. 11 ) I then finish of with Dusky Pink and Sunkissed Pink, again just going around the edges. 12 ) For the flowers I selected a range of lemons and yellows to compliment the greens. 13 ) I coloured all of the flowers with the palest colour first then added the darker colours to the centres of the flowers. 14 ) As I did manage to go over the edge in one place, when this happens I go dotty around the edges ! I normally pick a neutral colour and then 2 other colours that compliment the image. 15 ) Here's the finished image ! I hope you've found this tutorial helpful and look forward to seeing your projects in this week's challenge.

Right that is it for this week, don’t forget all you need to do is leave a comment for a chance to win a some images from Moira’s Designs,

See you all on Tuesday, have a great weekend

Hugs Gina, Denise and DT xxx

  5. Love the dots to cover up your 'error'. I'd not thought of putting yellows with lime green, I usually use purples.
    Thanks for the hints. Where do you get your colour chart from?
