For You...

for this weeks Ismaki Challenge blog.
I must say the sketch was not too easy for me. I had some girls asking me how i use the Stampin up Inkpads for coloring. I do not feel like i do a good job in watercoloring but if you like you can click on this pic and you can see all the details after the card was finished. Tilda is colored with inkpads, sheep and bench are colored with markers.
I addes some stickles to the sheep and Tildas wings. Papers are all Stampin up and the flowers are from Magnolia. This card will be going to Diana from Scorpal - she sent me yesterday a surprise package filled with Scor-pal goodies. :-)
Since some of you asked me ... here are some more pics.
Here is Tilda almost colored. I try to color first sections that are not "connected" let dry and start with the next color. Before i open my stamp pads i push with my fingers the lid down so the lid will touch the pad - than when i open my pad i have these ink puddles i can than pick up the color with my aquapainter.
Here i colored her shirt in green so it will tie my DP in. Her face is not quite nice yet so i went one more time over it to smoothen it. You have to be carefully tho.. if the paper is too dry you will end up with ugly waterstains. On the finished card you can see way more shadows i added these like on the collar on her shirt and the buttons with pencils.

  7. Lovely card Claudia and I love this sheep! It looks so funny! And colouring is nce too!
    A tip for giving shadows to the cheeks - I use an old pink eye shadow to color the cheeks when the paper is dry. After applying it, I smooth over with my finger tip..

  16. Thank you sooo much Claudia for the colouring tutorial - but I think a lot of it comes down to "talent"!! I'll keep trying though!

  39. What a beautiful card, the colors bring spring to mind (my favorite time of the year). I keep coming back here for inspiration, your work is just stunning.
    I wish there was a place I could get your Magnolia stamps. I have been frustrated with a couple sites I have been directed to, so pretty much gave up on them (for now). Will try at a later date, maybe the kinks will be out.
    Oh, I love your new banner, very cute.
