I know it’s not that long since I coloured up this sweetie but she really is my favourite Saturated Canary image, and I coloured her up on Saturday whilst spending a lovely time doing a wee class with a friend. She wanted to colour red and green, she got it lol. And I think she will have a lot more confidence colouring with bold colours now.
We used the following copics and pencils to colour Hand Me Downs.
Hair E47, 44, 42, 40 and dark umber pencil
Skin: E11, 00, 000, 0000, R30
Beige: E44, 42, 40 and warm grey 50% pencil
Reds: R89, 37, 35, 32 and Tuscan red pencil
Green: YG67, 63, 61, G20 and olive green pencil
The papers are really really old K & Co Tulip pad. Broke my heart using these but I had already coloured up the image and nothing else seemed to work like these do. That’s why I much prefer making up my card first then last thing I do is colour up the image, picking out colours from the papers I have used. SO much easier.
That gorgeous corner die is from Noor! Design. I embellied it up a bit with some pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts. I also used seam binding and flowers from WOC - 40mm wild rose, cottage roses, 15mm roses, cherry blossoms and stamens.
