Hi everyone. Sandie here and today I am sharing my colouring on this wonderful fairy stamp and backdrop stamp from Stamping Bella. This scene was created with 2 stamps using the masking technique.
I always start off by colouring the skin and my go-to colours are E00 and E11 with just a tiny bit of E04 for extra depth in the shading.
To do the hair with split pigtails, I took the lightest colour, E50, and drew and imaginary hair line.
Then I applied E53, flicking outwards from the imaginary hairline.
I kept going back over with the E51 and E53 until I was happy with the hair.
I coloured her shorts in blue, using B00, B02 and B04.
and for her shirt I used V12, V15 and V17.
For the wings I applied some BG11 and pulled it out a little with BG10. I leave the tips of the wings white. Sometimes I will add Star Dust Stickles to the wings to give them some sparkle.
Once the little Fairy was finished I moved onto the flowers.
For the yellows I used Y17, Y15 and Y13. I start with the darkest and work towards the lightest.
The blue flowers I coloured with B41, B21 and B34.
I used rich, warm reds for the centre flower - R35, R37, R39
R30 and R32 for the light pink flowers.
I didn't want the leaves to be all the same colour so I used four combinations. The first one is the YG family - YG01, YG03, YG06 and a little bit of YG17
The second combination is the G40's. These are not colours I typically use a lot of but they worked really well together on the leaves.
- G40, G43 and G46
The third combination is G20's. These are very similar to the G40's but there is a subtle difference.
- G20, G21, G24 and G28
On the little flowers I used purple to tie the colours to the Fairy.
V12, V15 and V17
The fourth combination of greens I used is G82 and G85. Again, this is very similar to the G20's and G40's combinations.
To finish, I applied some N3 to the daisies to create a little bit of shadow. I blended the N3 with some colourless blender.
The card measures 5.5" x 4.25" and I added a die cut sentiment, which I layered with white behind the black.
Thanks for dropping by, and I do hope you are inspired to reach for your markers today.
