Flights of Fantasy - coming up next week.
It's a brand new licence this time around, called Flights of Fantasy, created by the very talented artist Morgan Fitzsimons.
Now I have to be honest and say that ordinarily these might bot the images that I would go for, mostly because they seem a bit scary, colouring wise, but I have to say that they are really fun to colour. It takes a little time…but then again the best things always do…and if you concentrate on one area at a time, it all seems to come together at the end.
For this example I chose one of the Spectrum Noir Companions set and printed on to Neenah. There are two sheets on each Spectrum Noir Companion selection and each page contains about 4 images…all similar but sightly different, so you can get a really nice theme going.
I coloured my lady in with my Spectrum Noirs and used my absolutely favourite skin combination of FS1, FS2, FS4 and FS8. I also think that an absolute essential for skin is the brush nibs that you can get. I have them in each of these 4 colours and they make facial colouring soooooo much less scary!
The beautiful backing papers that you see are also from the CD and I have to admit that I particularly love this pink / aqua combination.
I cut some little flowers out of pearlescent white paper and coloured them with my Spectrums ti make sure I had a perfect colour match, before adding some pearl drops to finish.
There are going to be a bunch of shows next week with some fabulous inspiration so make sure to have a look if you can.
Meanwhile I am going to share the love a bit more by entering a few challenges:
Thank you for dropping by today and hope you enjoy the shows next week.
