This was made with the Friday Sketchers challenge blog in mind.
I’ve been toying with the idea of a black-and-white-card collection. A card using just those 2 colours—do they really call them colours or something else?--can actually look quite striking. But what I was thinking was restricting myself to using black and white (and shades of gray) and one other colour. This is unless a challenge asks for specific colours. I’ll label this my 'Black and white plus... collection'. I'm planning to do several cards--I'll probably be sick of B&W by then--LOL.
This one is going to be the first one using the colour of what else....red.
Tilda’s sweater is white, but instead of just leaving it as is from the white of the paper, I’ve taken my light grey marker to add shadows and then used my glue stick pen to go over the entire sweater, dumped some transparent micro-fine glitter and shook off the access glitter. So now the sweater has a shimmery-white look to it. Oh the same with the heart in the centre of Tulda's jumper.
PS. Oh okay, I lied. Hair colour can be any colour, okay? I’m still experimenting with colouring black hair. Haven’t done a creditable job yet. I guess I can’t really use the black marker or I’ll drown out the lines from the stamp image, but I don’t want to make Tilda looking like she’s got grey hair, hee hee.
