End of Summer??!

Helen here showing you a card (one image, two different scenes).
I used "End of Summer" by Mo Manning. I have it as a clear stamp through Stampavie.
And as you will see, it can be in the middle of Summer as well depending on how you color it.

I started by stamping my image on Perfect Coloring Paper with Memento ink.

Sketched in my background with C1.

Started with the sky, B0000.

I wanted a bright, colorful sky, so I went in with B24, which was a mistake.

Tried to get some shape, roundness in the cloud.
I used C00 - C0 - C1 - C3
For her skin I used E000 - BV20 - E11 - E50 - E04

The grass: YG03 - YG17 - T5
The sand: E31 - E33 - E35

Water: B32 - B41 - B45 - Gelly Roll Dark White

Hair: E07 - E19 - E29
Top: V0000 - V000 - V01 - C1
Jeans: B41 - B97 - B95 - B91
Flip flops: V000 - V1, C1 - C3
Flowers: Y17 - C1 - C3

This time I made a card out of my image because
I wasn´t pleased with the outcome of my coloring.
It was the color, B24, for the sky that I didn´t like.
But by cutting it down, I´m very pleased.

I started of with this background, this was what I had in mind.
But I struggled a bit and, when I did, I forgot to take photos.

Skin: E000 - BV20 - E50 - E11 - R00
Hair: Y00 - E53 - W3
Jeans; B91 - B93 - B95
Fence: C1 - C0 - Blender , and I have many layers with C1
Grass: YG21 - YG01 - YG17 - YG67
Background: YG21 - E30 - YG91 - YG93, Blender, Gelly Roll Dark White

So, does it feels like the end of the summer in the images?
I think not.

Happy colouring til next time!
