Weekend Workshop #19

Firstly we'd like to thank you for all the fabulous entries so far in this week's challenge, there is still plenty of time to enter - before 9am GMT on Tuesday, when the new challenge will start.
This week Sue has done a fabulous tutorial on colouring Tilda, you will love following her simple instructions, and we'd love to see how you get on.
Gina is taking a wee break from things for a while as she still has some ongoing pain from the car accident she was in a few weeks ago, so I (Debbi) volunteered to help Denise with the behind the scenes PfP stuff, so please bare with me

Tilda Colouring Tutorial
Here is a picture of the colours used for this image.

Skin Hair and Rose

Firstly lay a layer of your palest colour in small circular motions.
Skin almond (my favourite at the moment)
Hair Vanilla
Rose tulip yellow.. Stem forest green (darker shade first on this bit)

Next highlight areas with the next colour
Skin Blush and sunkissed pink
Hair add a little highlight with saffron on roots and tips
Roses add highlights with mustard.

Next stage is to blend the colours with the lightest shade
Skin Almond
Hair Vanilla and then a bit more saffron at the root and ends then highlight
with white gel pen.
Rose blend with buttercup, stem use leaf green in the middle and blend over the darker green.

Dress and Sash

Dress as before lay a layer of pale pink all over in a circular motion
Sash colour with satin

Dress highlight and shade with baby pink
Sash use dusky pink in the creases.

Dress blend colours together with pale pink
Sash make sure there is enough shading with dusky pink in creases

Tights Almond and satin alternated then blended together with almond.
Saffron at the edges and white highlighter pen (sorry I can't get a close up in focus)
Colours wings with satin and then I added yellow stickles.
