Lili of the Valley

Good Morning

Today I would like to share with you the images which we coloured during the fantastic workshop with Bev Rochester at Lili of the Valley on Saturday.

The first image was Aimi with Lantern. When I first saw the image I have to admit my heart sank, when I saw all the small areas of different colours on the dress, flowers and her fan. I didn't see just how I could get an image as good as Bev had. However with her expert teaching and taking it one step at a time this is my finished result. Please ignore the scribbles around the edge of the image, I was trying to change the colour of my promarker fine nibs :) 

This second image is Teddy with Robin. I didn't think we would actually get round to colouring this image in as Aimi took so long to finish. The little bear was coloured in browns and then the robin was coloured in. He is relatively quick to colour and such a cute image.When we had finished colouring him in with Promarkers we then went over with prisma colour pencils and used a blending stump and sansador. I can't tell you how much this last short process changes the images and makes them so much more professional looking.
If you ever get the chance to attend one of Bev's workshops GO GO GO.

I will try and get these images made up into cards soon :)

Thanks for stopping by. 
I appreciate all comments you may have on my cards.
