I Gave Myself a Colouring Challenge!


Have you ever seen a digi image and gone WOW - well I saw some gorgeous images from Aurora Wings recently and decided it was time to hunt them down and try colouring one up. It's always nice to try working on something a little different even if I did wonder if I had bitten off a bit too much halfway through - LOL. With so much going on I really had to concentrate on giving each element it's unique place in the scene without letting them merge together. The lines were there I just had to make sure the colour kept it's side of the bargain.

This beauty is Girl with Pansy - isn't she FABULOUS! After she was all coloured I added some sparkle to her eyelids with a Sakura glitter gel pen. I also applied some to my finger tip and added a light shine to her cheeks. The butterfly got a touch of clear spica over it's wings. The dots I did using liquid pearls and her ear-rings are purple rhiinestones. I love the resulting shimmer in different lights - it's a shame that can't be captured in a photo.

Copics Used - Skin (E13, E11, E00, E000, R20, R11) plus E18, E15, V17, V15, V12, C6, C4, C2, YR68, Y19, Y15, Y02, G28, YG17, YG05, YG03, YG01
