DV #219 Hand Coloured Image

Today at Dream Valley we are challenging you to hand colour an image. We are sponsored by Di’s Digi Stamps.

My creation is a page for my Studiolight Journal. I started with the page itself and inked up a Kate Crane texture stamp from Carabelle with versamark and then stamped it onto the page and embossed in white. I then inked each house a different colour with Distress Oxides. I changed the colours of the windows, doors and parts of the roofs with copic pens.

The three images I used are also Kate’s and are Lolly Dolly one of the ones from the Quirky set. I coloured these with copics too, onto Pink Frog smooth cardstock and then cut them out to stick down onto the page. Before that, and because I would have lost some detail on at least two of their heads I stamped the images directly over the coloured in houses. The extras around the edge and the circles with numbers/letters in are also from Kate and are from her Journal Doodles set. I coloured those with copics and cut them out and then having stuck them down I emphasised the edges with a black micron pen.

The sentiment, a quote from Michael Schenker. I printed it on my pc and having stuck the words down again went around the outside edge with a black micron pen. Finally I went around the edges with black soot distress oxide as it was a little too pastel.

I am entering this into:-
