Summer Fun Card

Hello everyone! This is Wanda and I am honored to be starting my term on the iCopic team. Today's card is my first official iCopic DT card. I hope you like it. I am putting the card pictures first and then I am posting A LOT of pictures of the coloring process if you want to check that part out too. Thank you for coming by to see me. Have a great day! Aloha!

She is so dang cute! I put some pink rhinestones in the center of the flowers in her hair. I used some punches to add a flower and leaves to the sentiment. I seemed kind of plain without it. The paper is from the AC Cardstock "tropical" collection - which I use often.

I am new to these Anya images and I have three so far. They are really fun to color and there is one for every occasion. The other two I have are a Geisha and a Mermaid. I'm enjoying trying some new images!

Here are the coloring process pictures. I hope this will help out! If you have questions, or if there's something you want me to demo in the future, please leave a comment or send me an email! Start by coloring in with your first color. I chose the medium shade of what I was coloring.

Add some darker low lights in the center...

The go back and blend over the entire image with your lightest color. This will melt all the colors together. You can also go back and add more dark if you want - adjusting to your taste and style.

For faces, I like E000, E00 and RV 10. Again...blend with your lightest color...

For her grass skirt, I started by making strokes to mimic what I thought a grass skirt would "feel" like. Then I went back and blended in the lighter colors.

The hair is the most difficult part! I'm still practicing this and trying to get better every time I color. I started with a nice medium golden yellow. The reason the hair looks shiny at the end is because I left white space to show the light hitting her head.

Here's the end result!
