A splash of colour

Over at the Willow Sketchie Challenge on the Craftbubble forum the twist this week was monochrome with a dash of colour.

Here’s the sketch:

Although I have stacks of patterned papers I don’t seem to own any black and white ones.Fortunately I’d spotted these lovely florals at Canon Creative Park a while back and thought  I’ll have to play with them sometime.Well now I  got the chance.

As they are positive and negative images of the same design I cut an apeture,using Nestabilities,out of the darker one then positioned the lighter one behind.The centers of the flowers have been accented with Maroon Promarker.The stamped image by Sugar Nellie from Funky Kits has been shaded with pens from the Cool Grey range,1,3 and 5,with small amounts of Black for extra depth.The bow,buttons and tights are coloured in Maroon and Mulberry.They are showing more purple in the photo but in IRL they match the Core’dinations card better (more like the flower middles).The skin is a mix of Ivory and Blush and highlights are added with white gel pen.Even though she’s sitting on a ledge on the stamp I decided to carefully cut some slits so that the ribbon could be extended from the tag to the image.The sentiment comes fromPersonal Impressions Cute Characters set 2.
