Spectrum Noir September Tutorial -18th

Hi everybody, today I am sharing my tutorial on how to colour with blendable pencils on kraft and using blending solution.

I really need to practise a bit more but there was a few people on the Facebook group looking for some tips, so ladies hopefully this will help you.

First of all I cut a piece of kraft card to size and stamped the image using memento ink.

Next I added skin tone to the arms, legs, face and neck.

Next I added colour to the dress, making it a bit darker at the edges.

I then used blending solution with a paper stump to the coloured areas, I feel using the blending solution gives the image a softer touch and takes away the pencil lines.  The image will look darker to start with on the areas you have used the solution.

Once the dress dried I then added colour to the book and then started to colour the socks

I then went over the coloured area again with pencil and then started colouring the hair.

I then used the blending solution all over....

I then went over all coloured areas again just to highlight the image.

I then trimmed the image to size and here's my final card, I added some little pearls and gems and some twine. 

blendable pencil colors used: 001, 002, 009, 024, 042, 065, 066, 088, 112, 117, 119, 120
