Hello crafters :-).....firstly i have the worst man flu eva!!(DH would argue)...so forgive any little spelling mistakes as im not quite "with it"....however i have managed to get a little crafting done..this is another sample i have made for Sarah Hurley with her fabulous Woodland Whimsie Cd's...which are packed full of papers, sentiments, embellishments, toppers and digi images....ive used this fabby owl digi..and coloured with ProMarkers...if your interested on how then there will be a tutorial at the end of this post ....everything is available on the CD's and she also has a couple of freebies here and here .... dont forget she's also looking for more DT Members ....
im also entering my card into the following challenges
Charisma Cardz Challenge - Watch the Birdie
Delightful Sketches - Bright Summer Colours
and if your still with me :-)
heres the tutorial....
firstly ill point out that i used a different card to my usual and the Colours have bled a little although it isnt as noticeable on the finished card....
I started off using Caramel all over the wing area (i nearly always start with the lightest colour and build it up)
dont worry if it looks a little patchy as we will blend it all together later
i than used Cinnamon to start building a little more depth
then again with Cocoa
then blended by going over the whole area in small circular motions with Caramel...you can repeat the process again until you get your desired effect..remember you can use you lighter colours to "lift" some of the colour out if it seems too dark :-)
i then coloured his chest part in Sandstone..giving it a couple of coats
ill point out too that the ink is still quite wet on thse piccies and will dry to a slightly lighter colour
i repeated the same process i used for the wing areas with his head
for his feet and beak i firstly coloured with Tulip Yellow adding a little detail with Gold
i finally used the Blender Pen to draw a feather effect on his chest as this also lifts colour...
hope this was helpfull..any questions feel free to ask..
