Little Umbrella

Hi everybody, something a bit different to share with you, I have decided to follow Laine's tutorial over on the Spectrum Noir blog on how to colour sun kissed skin.

Laine's colouring and instructions are fab so you can't go wrong.

For this card I have used Little Umbrella from Mo Manning which I coloured with Spectrum Noir Marker pens.

I followed Laine's tutorial, which you can find here on the Spectrum Noir blog.

first I coloured all the skin with FS2, then added FS4,TN2, TN4 and FS6, making it darker where there is shade and to the parts of the skin that would get a bit sun kissed.

Gradually build up the layers of colour until your image is sun kissed, pop over to the Spectrum Noir blog to check out Laine's tutorial as she has step by step instructions.

There's lots of other fab tutorials so why don't you check them out too on the Spectrum Noir blog.
pens used: FS2, FS4, FS6, TN2, TN4, OR1,OR2, CG2, DG3, GB8. GB10, GT1, GT2, BT7, IB3.
