I put tutorial in the title, but this is basically how I colour my images.
First off you will need
Stamp of choice
Card Stock of choice
First off stamp your image, I've used Versa Fine Black Onyx and 300gsm Watercolour paper
I'm using Tea Dye for her skin - so load the tip of the brush with the ink.
Go around the outline of her face
Then blend in working your way to the middle
Continue in the same way, loading the tip and outlining the areas that need to be coloured
Now I'm going to use Peeled Paint for her clothes - mainly her sleeves/top, dress and socks.
Again just outlining and then blending to the middle using water to bleed the colour lighter.
When you've finished and you want to add more shadow, wait till it is dry, wet, and then add the ink to add more depth
Here I've used Mustard Seed for her pinny
Here I've used the same technique, adding colour around the outline and blending to the middle.
Also coloured her shoes.
For the basket I have used Walnut Stain, and just blended to the middle
Lastly I added some Tattered Rose to her cheeks, not sure if shows up though.
I have used in total - 8 inks
Tattered Rose, Tea Dye, Peeled Paint, Mustard Seed, Walnut Stain, Antique Linen, Black soot and Dried Marigold
Thank you for popping by, any comment would be greatly appreciated!
