It's time for a new challenge at Make it Colourful and we're asking you to shade reds using darker shades such as grays, purples or browns. I've never done this before and am rapt with the depth I managed to achieve using Copic colours V17 and V15 which are in the violet/purple group.
I chose to use Make it Crafty's Annabelle to colour as the folds of her dress gave me plenty of opportunity to play with the shading. I added an embossed steampunk background and a chipboard gear from Make it Crafty's Gears Galore set. There are also touches of gold on the gear, in the mesh ribbon and on the flowers for a dash of elegance.
Pop on over to our GALLERY to check out what the rest of the MiC DT have coloured up to get your creative juices flowing - and don't forget to join in the fun and enter in the GALLERY too.
