First of all Happy New Year to you all, I hope you had a really nice evening, and I wish you all the very best for 2017.
I did it again! Managed to make the December 2016 class before the January 2017 class is released! I'm so proud of myself, that's two months in a row I've kept up with classes - and I hope I can keep up this tendency LOL.
This time the image used is Ballerina by Stamp Anniething and the free background stamps that comes with the image. Then you just merge the two, print and start colouring.
Isn't she lovely? I've coloured her with my Faber Castell Polychromos pencils, which I love to use. They are hard on my hands, but I don't care, I love colouring, and being taught how to use them properly is awesome.
I'm often amazed of what techniques I'm learning. Alyce Keegan is an awesome teacher and Kit and Clowder the right place to be if you need support from a great group of people.
I had a few issues as my white pens wouldn't work for the dots and stars, so I tried my Pergamano ink, which also didn't work as the ink wouldn't leave the nib. I ended up buying the thinnest Poska pen there is (0,7) and it was awesome for the dots, but the stars, well, they're ok, but a bit big.
The part of the floor that is totally outside the spotlight should have been a little bit darker, but I was afraid to keep putting layers on (there's two more layers there than on the darkest part in the spotlights).
I totally enjoyed colouring this scene (litterally, this scene LOL) and learning the new techniques, and I hope that you like what you see too.
Please feel free to leave me a comment, if you like my project, and if you want to see my cards/projects on a regular basis - please join my blog.
Be happy crafting!
