More Colouring

Practice, practice, practice!  More colouring today.  More Kraftin' Kimmie images.  I just love these girls.  I spent some of my Christmas money on new Kraftin' Kimmie images - thankfully there's a Boxing Week sale so I was able to s-t-r-e-t-c-h my stamping dollars a little further.  So here's what I did today:

This lovely lady is the Angry Ballerina.  When I first laid eyes on her, I had to buy her. I love pigs and I [heart] her bonnet and tail.  I used Copics on her and dried out on RV10 marker colouring in her dress.  I think I'm going to have to start a coloured images file or something since I'm piling up my practice images and have not made any cards with them.  Next....

This is Batty Princess.  She's pretty and sweet....if you get over the wings and her pet bat perched on her head.  She's coloured in with Prisma pencil, mineral spirits and paper stumps.  I have better control (I think) with this technique but the colour doesn't pop like the markers.  This is the first time I've done skin tones with the Prisma pencils.  Still on the fence with this.   Next...

This is....shoot there's no name on the contact sheet...*$&@*!  Anyways, also done with Prisma pencils and mineral spirits.  I tried to shortcut her upper body and make it seem like she's wearing a red shirt underneath her dress.  Have to admit it looks kinda lame...but I do like the job I did on the apron of her dress.  I have to practice on when to "quit while I'm ahead".  I always have a problem knowing when to stop until I've got beyond the point and its too late.  Oh well.

Can't wait for the postman to bring me my newest shipment of Kraftin' Kimmie images.  In the meantime I've got plenty to keep me busy colouring.  It should be relatively quiet around here tomorrow so fingers crossed I'll have plenty of time in my crafting cave.

Happy stamping!
