My way of colouring...

Hi stampers!
Today I have a new distress ink
tutorial for you.
I made it for The Magnolia Day and
showed it at my workshop.
You can follow how I colour this new
Tilda from Sweet Christmas collection.
There is som many different ways of
colouring with distress ink reinkers.
This is just my way and as I love to read
about how other work with different
medias I hope you will enjoy this!

Here I have stamped the same image four times
so you can see how I work through the process
of colouring with Distress ink reinkers.
The ink I  use is Staz on Timber brown
as you see in the end of this tutorial.
The paper is Montval Canson 300 gram.
Brushes are Italeri 00, 000.

To the left: I  start colouring.
Skin: tattered rose mixed with vintage photo.
I always start with the face/skin as this is
the most difficult part to do, for me that is.
I add distress ink firmly in the edges, rince the brush
in water and work with smooth hand and
circle movements towards the center of the
face leaving a brighter area in the middle.
I make the skin by putting on colour
2-3 times in this first step. It have to
dry a little in between.
Dress/socks: Victorian velvet mixed with
dusty concord and aged mahogny.
Hair: Antique Linen.

To the right: I have used the same mix of colours
 for the dress and added it in the edges
for more and deeper shadows.

Here you can see how I try to create shadows in
the edges of the image.

Here you can see the first step with
antiqe linen for the blond hair.

I have now added very little walnut stain
mixed with a big drop of water.
I still want her to be blond.

At the third image you can see how I made
the colour darker to create shadows.
Dress/socks: I have used the same mix as
before and just added weathered wood
for the edges. I try to only add this dark
 colour to the edges to keep the bright
look in the middle.
Cheeks: Aged mahogny in a big drop
af water (I  make it very light).

Line of hearts: Aged mahogny mixed with black sooth.
Around the image I have used antique linen,
which make it looks like a warm loving light
behind/around cute Tilda.

I have added a white line to the socks to make it
look like highlights. I use the pen: Inkessentials white.

Here you can see how I have added walnut
stain a second time to Tildas hair.

I use this ink for colouring with distress ink reinkers.
It´s a very beatiful brown tone, not to red as some
brown inkpads are in my oppinion.
I prefer this brown  inkpad instead of black ink.

Thanks for visiting me!
Love & Light
