Colouring black stuff causes a few issues so I've heard many times and one of my crating colleagues was having some issues, so I thought I'd have a go myself to see if I could do it. I'm always up for a colour challenge as many people know on Make It Crafty (as long as I have time). I'm please to say I'm very happy with the results.
The image is Roses of Love and I have it in rubber stamp form. I've used green ProMarker for the leaves with a touch of brown. The actual roses themselves were coloured using Copics. I have a full set of grey neutrals that I used to do this with (sad to say these are the only Copics in my collection at the moment).
The trick with colouring black I've found it to build up the layers and blend. For these roses I also had to decide roughly where I wanted to put the highlights first.
My inspiration for this was some photos of black rose images I searched for on Google.
To make the card up I wanted it very clean and simple to showcase the roses. So I've just mounted the image onto some plain black card stock to give it a border.
I wasn't sure they were a Mother's Day thing so I chose a sentiment from Lili of the Valley - Art Pad 8. The only other thing I've added are some black self adhesive gems.
Hope you like my colouring :)
