I have tried to get this ready in time to post into the orange and green contest, but I think I’m too late:( But still, here it is. Orange and green tilda on an easel card. Not much to say about it. I used cheap glitter gel pens from the $ shop for everything but the skin. For the skin I used the 2 copic that I own. All the rest is what I have in/on shelves and boxes;)
Apart from the skin, for which I used either Tombot or Copic, I can’t remember, I coloured this innocent little girl with my colouring pencils and blended/shaded with odourless solvent. I read about gumsol but can not get it where I live. Odourless solvent is great for blending and shading normal good colouring pencils. My pencils are from Faber Castel. I have the red student ones and the more professional ones. I still colour on any paper that I have and most of it is fine. I did buy some special copic paper to day though and 2 more copic markers. They are ever so expensive here. Anyway, I hope you enjoy this little card and you are welcome to criticise my work as I can only learn by it.
It’s supposed to be summer here down under New Zealand but the weather is everything but summery. To this comes that I have the sniffles and everything that goes with it, so feeling pretty bad.
I thought it was about time to post my cards. I can’t really tell you what I’ve used as my stuff hasn’t got names. I colour and shade with all sorts of pens and pencils, cheap ones like the ones from the $ shops, and not so cheap ones like Copic and Tombot markers. Some of my stamps are completely coloured with cheap glitter gel pens, others with water pencils. As you can see, I am still learning and finding out what medium I like best for colouring. And what paper to use.
I haven’t got German sentiments, so I have to write them by hand and my handwriting is not a very artistic one:)
