Video : Colour with ‘U’ – Fighting with my Inktense pencils!

Oh my, I eventually got there but was it a trial.  I nearly gave up on this little girl more than once but isnt’ that what we often call ‘creative opportunities’.  Funny how it is that sometimes it’s the cards that you fight with that turn out alright, she really is a cutie!

  1. I think you did an amazing job coloring this little girl…Such a cute card, Therese!

  2. She is adorable, and your colouring is fantastic (as usual). Just love watching your videos – thanks so much for the time you put into them.

  3. LOVE LOVE it! so sweet and indeed that is the good thing with watercolors they are so easy to fix…she is super cute and love the way you colored her.

  4. A sweet, adorable card! Love how you carried the theme through with the white embossed flowers on the heart bg and the added touches of bling.

  5. Just getting caught up on all your wonderful videos and posts! Good for you for sticking with that little girl, she came out perfect in the end! Your details are fantastic too!

  6. She turned out brilliant Therese, this is one of my favourites from Mo. I love Inktense but I think one of the secrets is we have to keep using it to remember how to use them best. For skin colour I usually go to Baked Earth. But I have started cheating and using copics for skin and painting the rest. Great card and well worth the effort, truly.

    1. You are so right Aileen, I really do need to use my pencils more and that will definitely help (now maybe if my hubby would let me stay home all day and craft, that would be better wouldn’t it?). I think that I have used my Copics for the skin before but this time I wanted to push myself and it’s all a learning curve whether it’s up or down lol. Have a great day, I’m off to the papercraft convention in Brissy with my sister for a few hours, can’t wait! x

  7. Well I think she turned out beautifully – glad you persisted. Love how you put cards together – you make it look so easy.

  8. Hooker’s green, bahahaha! I have several rug-hooking friends who’d get a kick out of that. I do so love how some of the most frustrating cards process-wise end up turning out like “I meant to do that”. What a cutie!
