Hello everyone :) I want to say thanks for all the lovely comments left for my last card, I very much appreciate them all. That card made the top 5 in the Cupcake Craft Challenge, which I'm really happy about, so if you heard a squeal recently, it might have been me when I discovered it!
Now, my latest card is me practising something new. I'm out to improve my colouring skills so I keep an eye on the Copic Creations and Make It Colourful challenges. This week the 2 themes coincided - colour in cool blues, greens & purples for Copic Creations, and blend blue and purple for Make It Colourful. This is another challenge that made me nervous, as I tend to add shading in my colouring with a darker version of the main colour, so to use a different colour for shading was outside my comfort zone.
This is the very first Tilda stamp I bought, and I only picked her because I was practising and didn't want to spoil my favourite images, lol. I don't like colouring her dress, it's too large an area for my comfort, I prefer colouring small things. I blended blue & purple in several areas: the jeans are blue and shaded with purple; the shoes are purple and shaded with blue, and I feather-blended both colours on her wings and to make the sky.
There's much room for improvement in the way this image has been coloured - it was definitely a stretch, but I like the effect of adding shading with a completely different colour, it seems to add interest and depth.
