Weekend Workshop # 18

This week Ida has done a great tutorial on the Forever friends bear, I am sure you will love it.


Forever Friends Tutorial – Ida

Seeing as I love the Forever Friends stamp I wanted to share a very basic tutorial with you on how I coloured my newest bargain! For this tutorial I have used the following colours: Oatmeal, Apricot, Blossom, Rose Pink, Primrose, Soft Lime, Lemon, Yellow and Ice Grey 1. I start of by colouring in the smallest spots on the image in round circle motions. (with the lightest colour tone, in this case Oatmeal) I then move on to colour the larger areas, continuing to use circular motions with my marker. When I have covered my whole image I add a darker colour (Apricot) where I want my shadows to be. When I have added the shadow, I go over the area with my lighter colour (Oatmeal), still in circular motion so that the edge of the darker tone blends with the lighter one. I repeat this step until I've cover all the areas I want to high light with these colours. I also add a line of grey around the whole image to give it some more life. Here I have used Ice Grey 1. I use the same steps to colour the gift box, using one light colour and one darker, in this case - Blossom & Rose Pink for the bow, Primrose & Soft Lime for the box and Lemon & Yellow for the tag. Thanks for looking, I hope this this was some how helpful! :)
