wk 9 - Digi Queens Colouring Inspiration

Welcome back to another day of lovely Colouring Inspiration from our Digi Queens team!


Tait - Hi guys, im back again for another fun inspiration card for you. I have used the very beautiful Seashore Shannon this week, I wasn't sure what I wanted to do with her - I really wanted to show just how beautiful the image is, so I have coloured her all in grey tones with copic markers. With the card I wanted it to be simple and showcase the image more than the embellishments so I have just used some distressed papers, a couple of bits of lace and some shells to finish it off. I hope you enjoy :D

I have coloured this image with copic markers using only the Cool Grey tones.

I have used the stunning Octavia Best friends Digi image today and coloured her up in Sepia tones using my Graph'it markers and added highlights with my gold glitter shake marker.  I was going for an autumnal theme and chose feathers and leaves as my embellishments and added vintage gold and white frantage powder to finish the card.

Janine - hi everyone! I just love the Winston CD and I couldn't resist this fabby digi stamp of Winston chillin' out in his boat; I think he's so cool!  To colour this gorgeous image I thought I would take inspiration from Nikky and use my Pan Pastels - it was a bit of a learning curve but I'm happy with the results. However I did use a few pencils in certain areas to add a little extra depth. I decided to make it a CAS card so the background layers are quite simple. To finish off I added a few hand drawn fish and some buttons.

I used the following Pan Pastels: Turquoise, Bright Yellow Green, Phthalo Green, Burnt Sienna Shade, Permanent Red, Permanent Red Tint, Violet Tint, Titanium White, Diarylide Yellow, Black.

Christine - Hi peeps, another Christmas card from me! I've used the gorgeous 'Presents' for my card this week from the Work and Play 5 Festive Hollybobs Collection CD.  I also used some digi paper from that CD too.  I do love colouring in red - though it's such a tricky colour - it can so easily bleed.  I'm also experimenting with my background shading - going for slightly deeper to make the image stand out more.  Like her dotty dress and headband?  Easy to achieve with a white gel or poster paint pen.  I did the sentiment on the PC and used Dies for the image, sentiment, & the holly.

Fi - Hi folks and here's my latest card.  I have used this little cutie called Luna which you can find here in the Polka Doodles store.  I coloured her in with alcohol markers.  I made the background with my floral fusions die-namics die which I layered onto card which I coloured with distress inks.  The bottom part of the backing has been embossed with the same die.  I added a piee of ribbon around the join just to finish it off a bit.  The bow has been fastened to the card and a rolled rose has been attached.  I added some teeny pearls to the centres of the dies cut backing....hope you like!....
