Today my friend Lisa stamped off the image of Daisy from The Greeting Farm so that I could see what I could do about colouring her hair! Well, it was a challenge and the result is less than pleasing! I have no idea where to put the dark bits or the light bits! I have watched tons of tutorials and it still does not look right. Ok, I have to admit that if I don't have the exact colour, or maybe there is one shade missing then I tweak it a little but my colours are never far off. I find that when it's a huge mop of hair, or any largish open area to be coloured then I struggle. Is it just me?
Paper: Neenah Solar White; PTI Cardstock: White Notecard (Hobby Lobby)
Ink: Shabby Shutters DI; Petal Dye Ink (CTMH); Copic Markers
Stamps: Hero Arts; The Greeting Farm; PTI
Other: EK Success border punch; Glossy Accents
Practice, practice, practice.... that is what I will have to continue doing! After battling with the hair for at least, if not more, than 30 minutes, the rest was fairly straight forward. I applied some glossy accents on her shoes, jacket and the flower in her hair.
You see that background, it was made with a circular stamp from one of Hero Arts' sets from quite a while ago, I like it. I am enjoying more and more creating my own backgrounds.
Thank you for coming by to take a look. Any advice on colouring that hair would be greatly appreciated! Wishing you a great evening (or day depending on where you are)!
