Colour an image with a light source from a lantern or candle within the image!
Yee gads, I hear you shout (or words to that effect)
That is the challenge we are currently running over at
MAKE IT CRAFTY
If you have a current copy of the new Magnolia Ink magazine you may have seen Zoe's guide on how to colour an image with a lamp - hence she decided to set us the challenge to try it too!
Well, ahem, where do I start on this one - having stamped out my image I masked her with Eclipse masking tape (awesome stuff) and covered the snow area with a roughly torn piece of kitchen towel and set to work with my Copic Airbrush (Oh boy that piece of kit is fun to use)
Then the hard work began, colouring by hand. As with Zoe's tutorial, you must pay attention to your light source, but equally to the shadows - and don't forget to use your greys!!!
I had a blast with the snow, it is probably the most realistic representation of fresh snow that I have achieved since I started using Copics - not quite there yet, but I am getting there - and if I am totally honest it is a little too "white" for this composition.
That's enough arty waffle..............here is the list of stuff used:
Magnolia - Midwinter Tilda
Craft Creations Christmas Scrolls - Red
Ribbon from stash
Die-Namics - Fancy Flourish
Make it Crafty - Swirly Corners
Copics (see below)
OK this is the bit I love - inviting you guys to have a bash at our latest challenge and ask you to post your entries in the gallery HERE
