Today it's me to share with you a little tutorial for Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.
I took step by step pictures from how I color a tree.
For this example I've used a stamp from the adorable "A sunshiney day!" stampset by Cheryl.
Here we go!
Draw some structure in the tree with your lightest color (E31).
Nature is not perfect, so it doesn't matter how you draw them.
Squiggly lines are the most beautiful ones.
Don't worry about the mistakes, you won't see them at the end!
When you're happy with it, you can redraw the lines with your "real" color (E37)
Color with your E35 marker next to your lines, leave enough white space for the others!
Color with your E33 marker next to the one before, leave a little white space.
Fill in your white spots with the E31 marker.
Now we have to darken it up! I really like to use the E29 or the E59 for this part.
Go again over your first lines.
Blend the last color out with the E35.
Now it's time for some shadows. Use your E35 and E33 for the shadows on the outsides of the tree. Don't forget the schadows under the arms/hands.
For the finishing touch, blend the spots who are too light or have "lines" of your previous markers.
Your tree is ready!!!
Hope you've had something about this.
We would love to see your colored images and cards with trees, don't forget to share them!
