Coloring Challenge#1

And so, let's start our first new challenge, A COLORING CHALLENGE ^^ Are you ready? For this challenge, we just want to see your colouring skills! So share anything you want - it doesn't have to be a completed project (a partially coloured MCS image is fine!), but you do have to use a MilkCoffee Stamp digis!

Feel free to use the freebie we have provided her, or there are plenty of free digis we offer - click here [link to freebie posts] to use them or any other MCS stamps you own!

This challenges will run monthly, starting from the 10th of each month and ending on the 9th of each month. We will pick the winner by random.org and the winner will receive 3 images by your choice from MILKCOFFEE shop.

So, use a MCS digi stamp and use at least 3 of the colours of the palette below...





All you have to do is to color the image according this palette and then link the result here. No need to make any card, just the colored image is enough ^_~ And this week, we will feature Mary J's coloring tutorial :) Her tutorial will be separated in 2-3 post, and we will show you the first part of her tutorial here.

~Coloring Tutorial~

It's Mary J here and I've put together a quick tute together to show you how to colour folds in clothing, so let's get to it!  I've used Lisbeth Walks In The Rain as she's such a pleasure to colour in and the first thing I do is choose the colours I'm going to use - RV00, RV10 and RV02.  That is in order of lightest to darkest (yes, RV10 is lighter than RV02!).


Okay, so first I cover the dress all over in the light shade I've chosen, RV00.  I like to do the base colour first as it gives me a feel of the flow of the dress as I colour it in (click on the photos for a larger view)...



I then use the darkest shade, RV02, and add to the darkest shaded areas of the dress...


I then use the mid-shade, RV10, and lightly blend the edges of the darkest areas into the lighter areas with light feathery strokes...


And lastly, I go over the whole dress with the lightest colour, RV00, to soften all the edges...



Et voila!  I hope you found that useful - feel free to leave a comment with any questions and I'll get back to you!
