Fairyopolis- Rosehip Fairy

Hi Everyone

Just a quick post as i need to be up really early for my demo in scotland tomorrow.  I'm going to the store opening of Hobbycraft, unit 5, almondvale retail park, livingston eh54 6rq. All day tomorrow and there are some fab offers and prizes to be had.

Well i finally got the Chance to test my new skills that i learned at a colouring class a couple of weeks ago using alcohol pens and polychromo pencils.  I attended a fab class with Lily of the Vally and the fab Jaqui Dennis and Bev Rochester.  I did this all for my self as a treat, even though i felt i could get could result.  However  i really wanted to learn how to do it properly and try to get amazing results that i have seen others getting.  and i met a fab group of like minded crafters and had a fab day.  Even though i was naughty and kept going ahead of everyone else, i'm far too impatient for my own good.  The secret is using the pencils to outline dark areas and blend this with sansodar using paper stumps. To find out more go to jacquis blog where she has a fab tutorial.  All fascinating stuff.  And i love the results.
I've stamped the image using my rockablocks and rosehip from the autumn fairyoplis stamp set. I've coloured it using my speccies, love them. I need to colour everyday.  I've then chosen two different background papers from the autumn cd and used a rub on sentiment.

A few flowers and leaves to finish and i really do love this image and card.

Hope you like it.

  2. Wow this is beautiful Louise! Your colouring is FAB. I went on the LOTV colouring day in Kent with Bev and Jacqui back in May and had a great day ... met some lovely crafters and even though I was reasonably happy with my colouring before I went it was great to learn a few tips.
