good evening all, well here is part 2 of my promarker tutorial.thanks again to katharina from whiff of joy and don`t forget you can find the stamp i used here.so lets get on with it and start off where we finished last night.lol.

so 1st i have used PUMPKIN all over his sleeves and hat.

then nearly all over with ORANGE.

then a a little of SPICE.

then BURNT ORANGE where the darkest areas would be.

use your PUMPKIN and go all over in small circular movements until it is blended to your liking.

then use LIME ZEST all over his tunic and spare hat.lol.

then nearly all over with LIME GREEN.

then a little bit of BRIGHT GREEN.

and a little FOREST GREEN in the darkest areas.

take your LIME ZEST again and blend together.

for the honey pot and the top of his hat.all over first with TULIP YELLOW.

then a little SUNFLOWER.

then a little GOLD.

and blend with the TULIP YELLOW.
for the teapot and cup. start with COOL GREY 1 all over.

then COOL GREY 2 nearly all over.

then a touch of COOL GREY 3.

then COOL GREY 4 in the darker areas.

then blend again with your COOL GREY 1.

finally i like to use chalk to disguise where i go out of the lines, ooops!!
i use a paint brush to apply.

and voila.all done and ready for a card and if like me you colour before choosing your papers etc and then find you have nothing to match, you could always hand doodle your own backing paper and colour with your promarkers too.lol.
i hope this has been of some help and thanks for reading.
ttfn and happy promarker playing!!!!
luv coops.xxxxx

Hi Nic
Thank you so much for this excellent tutorial! I have been following your blog for quite some time now and have always admired all of your cards - especially your colouring. I can't say I will be able to do as well as you do but it gives me a better idea of what I should be doing! 8oD.
~Thanks again and I look forward to your future postings.
Kind regards, Dianne

Thanks for part 2! This will really help my colouring, although it looks like I'll need more promarkers if I need 4 of every colour to get the shading right! Oh well, never mind!

Jo said...

Delphine said...

Wonderful part 2, Nic! And I am really glad you mentionned using a paintbrush to apply chalk, I was wondering how you did it, to get such a nice result :-)! Another idea for a tutorial by you... How do you make such amazing backgrounds using distress inks... :-) Maybe a lot of people know, I don't! Hugs Delphine xx
