Now over to Tracy who has done a fabulous tutorial for us this week, you will not be disappointed …………

The image i've chosen to use from this weeks sponsor 'Sassy Studio Designs' is one of the Little Honey's, Mermaid Mandy.

Today I'm going to show you how i colour most of my images.
I have printed the image onto Mondi IQ smooth white 160gsm card, which i got from Staples.
If the image is a person i always start with skin, so i've started with Apricot in the areas i wanted darkest/shadowed.
Then i went over the Apricot with Oatmeal, extending the colour a little into the white.
Next i went over the whole of the skin area and filled in all the remaining white using Blush.
I then added some colour to her cheeks using Pastel Pink, and went over the whole of the skin area again with Blush to blend it all together.
Now onto the hair.
Starting again with the darkest areas, i used Cocoa.
Then i went over the Cocoa and extended into the white with Cinnamon.
To complete the hair i went over the whole area using Tan and blended it all together.
Next i coloured her tail and shell bikini top, using the same method again.
I also added colour to her eyes, lips, necklace and earring.
Finally i went around the edge of the whole image with Powder blue, then softened the line using the blender.
This also gets rid of any little bits of colour that may have gone over the line a little.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing how i colour.
Don't forget to come back to the main challenge blog on Tuesday to see my finished card.
Hugs Tracy x

    Je commence juste avec mes promarkers, et je suis nulle pour le moment lol
