Kimono Card

Hi everyone, Wanda here! Must be Wednesday, cuz I'm here with you today! Today I am sharing sweet Geisha Anya with her pretty kimono and shiny black hair. I found just the perfect piece of patterned paper to use with this card to make her a pretty little cherry blossom scene. I think I might possibly be addicted to coloring these Anya images now! Seems I can't stop! Hope you like this one!


Here is a close up of her hairdo! NO BLACK was used to color her hair! Black is too harsh and will come out flat. Instead I used cool grey tones: C2, C5 and C7. Her flower and Kimono were colored with pretty shades of: R12. R14 and R17. For the hair, I started with my lightest shade first to lay a foundation of color. I did leave some white space, as you see. I went back over with my medium shade and finally streaked in some of the C7. Practice "flicking" your brush pen tip to feather out from thick to thin lines. It's an optical illusion that your eye sees black when really it's grey.  




So beautiful! That torn edge in inspired.

Great job coloring the black hair...that is a difficult task, I think. Love the torn edge with the twine and charm...excellent touch! Great color choices for the challenge. LC

Fabulous card! I always have trouble colouring black hair so will have a go with this technique. I just got some cool grey markers last week.
