Same Image ... four looks

Hi Everybody,

I wanted to show you the different looks that can be achieved with different color combinations for hair and clothes but using just one image to illustrate the point.

The image is called  Baby Bow and it is from Mos Digital Pencil.

I have used a mixture of   Spectrum Noir  pens and pencils to achieve the look.

The full  selection  of pens and pencils  can be bought from  JGD Crafts

The cards have  all been made  to the same  Hinged Style  and they  all have been  matted and  layered with color  coordinating card and papers to compliment  the image.

Each one has had the Tutus, headbands  and ballet shoes  of the baby glittered  and I have added matching ribbon to each one also.

Each of the cards has the addition of a matching pearlised Rose and they are from Samaflora 

All of Sams' flowers are hand made and she creates new ones regularly.

They are in beuatiful colors so please pop over there and take a look ... and tell her I sent you.

I hope the addition of the watermark does not spoil your view of the card but it is becoming increasingly  important for a watermark to be added to any cards that you color in.

It is apparent that the colored images are being stolen and then re used as someone elses work on cards that they claim as their own and so the watermark helps to stop this theft  ... and  protects not  only  my/your  work  but the artists work as well.

The colors I have used for the pink image have been pens only and they are ...
Skin   FS2   FS4  FS5
Hair   TN2  TN7  TN8 with brush nibs
Tutu   PP1  PP3  PP4

More tomorrow ...

  1. Your coloring is super awesome....it's always nice to see the same image but in different colors...
    well done Christina

  2. I like all four but maybe the lavender and pink are my favourites. It's a shame that you have to watermark your images just because of the moral values of some people.

  3. They all look so cute and your colouring is superb. Pat x

  4. Beautiful cards. What wonderful colouring. Hugs Rita xxx

  9. 4 very beautiful cards Christina. Colouring is amazing. I am in awe of your talent. Watermark is not a distraction on your beautiful work, but a necessity. Would love to know the gorgeous font you used for your watermark. Hope you are feeling much better now. Sue.

  10. Gorgeous cards and such a sweet image beautifully coloured


  11. Christina,
