Building a background

Hi there Copic loversElena F here from Scrap-lanak Ganbaran.

For my latest DT project I have built a background matching the theme of the stamp I used.

I stamped my rubber Gorjuss Girl stamp (how much do I love rubber stamps?!) in Memento Desert Sand Ink to colour her using the No Lines Colouring Technique. I love to colour this way.

Here you've got the picture of my project:

...and here's a closer look at the colouring:

I'm going to show you in pictures how I built this scene.

I take my ruler and draw a central line, which is going to be the center of the perspective.

At an 80 degree angle I draw the angle for the two walls.

Then using the same angle I draw an open door to make my scene more interesting and I draw by hand the decoration for the door.

I draw a chimney, also respecting the 80 degrees angle.

Then I start colouring my stamp, as you can see in the next step pictures:

I love to colour skin in E0000, 00, 21, 11 and 13.This is my super favourite skin combo.

Then I colour in dark blonde her hair using  E57,35 and 31.

Then I took my sepia Multiliner to add details to the eyes, a very few tiny lines in the hair and in the contour of her face. See how different she looks? There is much more depth.

Then I colour her dress using  BG10, 11, 13 and a few tiny touches of BG49.

Now I start coloring my background in a light pink using RV10, R81, 83.

To colour the incoming wall (darkest for the shadow) I draw across the line with the marker and the ruler and then I add straight lines to blend all over.

As it appears she is decorating the room...a little BV11 colouring.

Then I took My R43 to make a patterned wallpaper look.

I colour the door in E43, 42, 41, 40 and the dark shadow of the other room in N5 and 7 (not shown in the picture).

Finaly I coloured the chimney C1, 00 and blender and the inside of it with C7 and C5.

I hope you found this post inspiring.
Thanks for sticking with me to the end!
