Breaking Dawn Card

Hi girls and fellow crafters

Here's a couple of cards I have made yesterday and today.

This first card I made for a work colleague whose daughter, Erin, turned thirteen yesterday.  She asked for a 'Breaking Dawn' card and I didn't want to make it too 'young' OR too 'old' and I thought this digi image from Tiddly Inks would be perfect.

The photograph doesn't actually do the card justice and looks so much better in the flesh (so to speak).

I coloured the image with my copics and my Derwent Watercolour Pencils and a little bit of Sansodor with a blending stump. I was really pleased with the overall colouring of the image and I mounted it onto coloured card, continuing with the breaking dawn theme, i.e. sunrise colours etc.

Here's an image of the blank digi and the finished coloured digi up close so that you can see all of the folds etc that I have added to her dress and his suit.  I actually wasn't that happy about how his suit turned out but I did like how her dress turned out.

Anyway, that's the first card to show to you all today, I hope you like it and thank you so much for stopping by. Hope you had a lovely 13th birthday Erin, all the best for a happy year to come.

Hugs and best wishes.

Absolutely BRILIANT colouring. Do you use Promarkers FIRST and THEN the pencils/Sansodor, or the other way round? x

Promarkers first hon and then pencils. Use darker colours where you think the shadowed areas would be and then add some white to highlight the lighter areas where the light would fall. Then add a little Sansodor over the pencilled areas to blend it all together.

Hope that helps?
