It had been awhile since I sat down and just coloured for myself. My hubby has been away from work, and I was really naughty and spent the whole weekend just colouring. I really enjoyed it. So, now I have a few images all coloured and ready to be made into cards. Stampin’ Up! Flying Home Stamp Set from the Occasions Catalogue is one I’m sharing with you today.
I’ve been trying to get the hang of light and shade, and light direction and how the shadows might be cast on the lower subjects (the branch in this case). I’ve been all over the place with my colouring, but I’m learning now.
And I do have a video to share with you, showing the colouring process and the colours of Stampin’ Blends I used. Come to the blog if you’re reading via email.
The colours in my card are Crumb Cake, Crushed Curry and Calypso Coral. I’ve added a little Pool Party Shimmer Ribbon, and some sequins. The Happy Birthday Sentiment is from the Picture Perfect Birthday set in the Occasions Catalogue.
