My My how the weeks pass so quickly, it'll soon be Xmas! Time for another challenge at Passion for Promarkers, this week chosen by our fabulous D-Teamie, Nat, who wants to see cards using your favourite colour scheme.
YOUR FAVOURITE COLOUR COMBO
I've gone for lilac, pink & grey, my absolutely totes fave colour combo. This is one of the new Saturated Canary images called Sweater Socks Fairy. She's fab! The papers are Prima - Fairy Belle.
I have been asked how I create the shadow around the figure. Basically I use the 5 (not 50!) shades of grey, either Cool, Warm or in this case, Ice. I use the darker shades dotted closer to the image & work out. Adding more dots where I want the shadow to look darker. I also used paler shades of pink & lilac all through. I went over all the shadow with Antique White which has the effect of blending the colours & lightning the areas I felt were too dark. I always feel it's mandatory when colouring fairies, it's mandatory to add sparkle. In this instance I added it to the shadow for a change & I love the way it looks.
I hope you'll join us at Passion For Promarkers this week, where we are sponsored by Digi Stamp Boutique. Our lucky winner will win 6 digi images.
I am also entering this at the Saturated Canary Challenge where their theme is Winged Things.
At Totally Gorjuss they want to see cards with dies or punches. I used dies to cut the fishtail banners & the corner flourish.
My layout is based on the fab sketch at Crafting Life's Pieces.
So there you go. That's it from me. Hope this finds everyone out there happy & well & that you are all surviving the summer hols! My boys are doing tennis club this week. So long may this fine weather continue. Sadly I don't think I've got the next Murray brothers on my hands, but as long as they have fun it's all good. Apart from the fact I have to work :~(
Thanks so much for looking.
