I've had one or two comments about my colouring :)
So I though I'd shared with you some photo stages of how I colour black hair with Copics and Biro.
I've never been taught or shown so I don't know if this is the right way - it's just my way.
The image I've used here is from Ching-Chou Kuik - Boston Terrier
Hair coloured all over with N3
Some darker patches added to start adding shadow with N5
Blended the shading with my N3
Adding some darker shading with N7
Then blended with the N5
To add some highlights to the dark hair I use a N0. This takes some of the all over smoothness out and leaves it looking a little patchy.
Finally starting to use the biro to add in some shading and hair strands, you can see this on the right hand side of the picture
Left side now finished off with the biro. I may have to make a video to show more detail of the blending and biro - bit to be quite honest the thought scares me to death :)
There's a slight difference in the colour of the photos here. All the ones above were taken at work and the next couple were taken at home in artificial light. Anyway this is the completed image.
So what I did to make the card up. Cut out the image with a Spcllbinders die. Cut out some black card with another Spellbinders die then mounted the image onto it.
Apart from some more black card the design papers are from Lili of the Valley and Joy Crafts.
Tim Holtz distress ink.
From Live and Love Crafts beautiful lace, a heart hanger, a resin tiny frame, a resin corner embellishment, a clay heart, some Kort & Godt hortensias.
The Ribbon Girl a pearlised pin.
Wild Orchid Crafts some roses and rose bud and some organza rose trim.
To add to the "shabby" I've added some white gesso.
Hope you like little piece of shabbyness :)
