Tokyo Girl Card

Not exactly a Tilda on this card, she is called Tokyo Girl by Karen which can be bought as a digital stamp from Dewdrop Craftz.  I've had this image a while and thought it would be great to try out different colouring techniques with the Pro markers, its quite a complex image with  lots of folds and tucks in the fabric.  I was more interested in the image and the colouring than the actual card itself, hence the card is quite basic no prizes here for being adventurous. I've applied gold glitter to the pocket, buttons, and general bling.  I will enter this card into Stamp Something Digital and Fussy and Fancy challenge.

Colouring Tip
I created the deep shading on the jacket by applying a layer of Lush green to the shadow areas followed by a layer of Maroon applying as many layers till I was happy with the end result.  You could also use greys, but I find these tend to dull the main colour, the Lush green enriched the maroon shading. I only used one colour on the scarf which was Moss Green, applying layers of the same colour to create the shading for the folds etc.  By mixing complimentary colours IE: green and red you will automatically create a grey which is great for shaded area's.  Have fun be experimental.

This is my entry into the following Challenges
