Finally had a little time (mainly due to internet problems ha ha) to get this little beauty coloured up.
I created Kamsin for the Crafting Circle Artists Challenge for March. The idea was to create an image where people could practice their colouring skills on a portrait etc. I created Kamsin with lots of movement in her hair.
You can find her in my Etsy shop click here. You can also get my image with 10% off by quoting code SKIANDREA10
If you do get any of my images you can enter this into my Facebook Group challenges click here to visit my group.
AND we're just about to start my new blog challenge. The first one will start on 1 April and is going to be an easy theme to get us going. The bonus is if you use one of my images to enter with and you win you get an extra image for your prize. Click here to follow.
The first time I coloured her I did her with Ombre and although I liked the look I decided to try my original colour choice which I was a bit nervous of doing. No idea why if you do it wrong just print it again and have another go!
She's been coloured with Copics to a certain extent. I've yet to learn how to get this full effect using them. I've also used polychromos pencils to finish off with. Her hair is of firey colours red and orange and her eyes a luminous green. You could colour her in with ordinary glasses but I've chosen to do her with sunglasses as a chic with a bit of attitude :)
I showed Katrina my colouring at work today who says its me! I want a card with that for my birthday :D
I used some Sizzix letters to cut the sentiment into the card. Underneath this is some black card and then some orange design paper from Joy Craft.
Finally I did some doodling with a pen to add a bit more of a border.
Hope you love my creation
