Today' video is about colouring clothes. I chose denim, because you get those light and dark shadows with denim, but the principle remains the same whatever colour you are using - you would get darker shadows on the inside of the legs, around the hems, under a belt or top, and on the side of the leg furthest away from the light - e.g the left hand side of your card. The right hand side of your card is where your imagined light is hitting the image. Then on the top half of an image, your dark spots would be under lapels, on the creases of the arm, and the whole arm furthest away from your imagined light coming from the right side of your card.
This stamp is an Urban Belle, on sale at QVC in the UK. The papers are all K & Co, including the shaped tag. The sentiment circle is by Craftwork Cards The tiny paper roses are by Paper Wishes in the USA
I haven't a clue where the next image is from, I got him in an image swap (have you ever done an image swap? Get together with crafting friends, online or from the 'real world', and stamp say a dozen of your favourite stamps for each of them, they do the same for you, and hey presto, you have a great stash of ready stamped images all set to go). The music background is a stamp by Hero Arts, Papers are by Cosmo Cricket. The border punch is Optic Dot by Martha Stewart
So I coloured the anonymous little singing telegram chap in the same way as the girl, using slightly different blues for his jacket and trousers for definition. I wanted to include this card so that you could see how the fine tip of the Promarkers coped with filling in the tiny 'telegram' letters on his hat.
I would have found filling in this fine detail impossible with the brush tip of the Copics - maybe I have a heavy hand, but the fine tips work better for me
Blues I use for Denim
Pastel Blue, Powder Blue, Denim Blue, Blue Pearl
I'll be back tomorrow with another video, this time on using your blender pen to leave 'white space' on your images. See you then........
