Colouring White

A bit late on this one since I wasn't able to get a picture before it was put in the store. This was the card we did in the intermediate class after the Black and White technique and before the Christmas Card (two posts down).

This card was teaching how to colour white. This technique can be used with colours other than the ones I used, such as blue, purple, green... anything!

Colours used:

Skin: E50, E000, R11
Hair: E35, E39, E51
Dress: E53
Shawl: E57, E74, E53
Baby Blanket: B000, R11, E53

And the tips for this one:
When colouring white, don't use greys. It makes the image seem flat, and having a colour (such as blue or purple for snow) gives the image more life. Also, when making soft images, or images with pastel colours, try using Memento Rich Cocoa rather then Tuxedo Black to give the overall image a softer look.

I would also like to point out that if you would like to see larger images of the ones you see, click on them to view their full size. This applies to my entire blog, so if you need to get a closer look at something, click the image! :)
