Helen here and today I will show you one of my favorite brands of rubber stamps, Lili of the Valley.
I just love, love, love their designs. They bring out the playfullness in me and my colouring and it feels like it takes no time to color a design. I love to by my rubber stamps used and I´m always looking for LOTV stamps as I collect them.
Today you´ll find the designs as Digi stamps on Etsy and the one I coloured is called Little Nurse.
As always I stamped my design on Perfect Coloring Paper with some Memento Ink.
My go to for skin is: E000 - R00 - E11 - E50.
In the beginning of a colouring it can be difficult to understand every line in the image, as you can see here, I didn´t colour her left upper arm.
His colour is: W1 - W0 - R00 - R11.
This is one of those time I´ll start with the darker shade, as I did between his eyes to push that area back and to get the nose to stand out.
The shade for the apron and socks is: B0000 - 0 Blender
Her hair colours are: Y000 - W00 - E30 - E42 - W3.
The shadows in the white stripes are: C3 - 0 Blender
The pillow got gray shadows: C00 - C2, and to make it look clean
I went in with some blue as well, used B0000 - 0 Blender
The sticking plasters shades are: E30 - E31 - E33.
The bottle got: BG90 - BG93 - BG96, and the label: E42- E41.
The spoon got: C0 - C1 - C3, BG93.
The shadows on the ground: C0 - C1 - C3
Added some shadows.
The socks: N3
Kerchief and apron: B91
In the dress: T5
To make the characters even come more to life, you might fill in the eyes and the nose of the teddy with a black liner pen. It will give them more intensity. And then you´ll add some highlight in that areas with a white gelly pen as well. But I haven´t done it here.
I really enjoyed to not make a background colouring this time. To give the design total focus.
Hope you all will find time to relax and enjoy some colouring this summer.
Happy colouring til next time!
