Just Magnolia & Hanglar and Stanglar challenge

This weeks Just Magnolia and hAnglar & sTanglar challenge is Favourite Colours.  Well we all know just how contrary I am and at the moment I am loving colouring browns ergo a brown card.

The image is from the last H&S kit on eBay and she was feeling very neglected.  I just love colouring up these stamps so must not neglect them any more.  I have had lots of work going on in the background, 4 magazine commissions plus samples for the new LOTV release has kept me out of mischief, so not much of anything else has gotten done (thank goodness my hubby does the housework lol).

I coloured her with Copics and pencils

Skin the usual E21, E00, E000, R20
Hair E29, E27, E25, E35, E50 and dark umber pencil
Top and shoes: E43, E42, E41, E40, T3, T1 and warm grey 50% pencil
Dress E29, E27, E25, E35, E51 (I used a LOT of E51 over and over till I was happy with how it all blended).  Then a dark umber Prismacolor pencil in the shadows to darken it a bit more
Shadows W5, W3, W1, E000, E0000, E40

The papers are K&Co Julianne 6 x 6 speciality pad, the ribbon and charm is from my stash, the cluny lace is from a sweet friend in the US, but The Ribbon Girl has it in stock so I need never panic about using it again lol.

The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts - small flat gardenia, 20mm roses, 15mm roses.

The card is in my lil eBay shop

Have a great weekend

  5. Oh sweetie, she is a cracker! Loving all those rich browns, makes me think of Lindt chocolate (or is that because I've given it up for Lent?). Great image and, as always, stunning colourwork and finishing details. Hugs Sxx

  23. Beautiful card, once again, Bev! Can I ask, when colouring, do you start with your darkest colour first and get lighter or vice versa? I have only just started used pens and can't get the blending right yet!?!
    Thanks, Lisa X
