... And in Colour

Using the same designs I showed you yesterday and the day before here are a selection of cards to show the use of full colour. Of course this involved a lot more Promarkers, but keeping to a minimum, this is what I came up with.

When colouring in a full range of colours, it is still a useful tip to start by colouring the whole area with the palest shade you have. Then build up the shades and finish by using the palest shade to blend the colours. Alternatively you can buy a blending pen which can be used with any colour. You will need a few shades of each colour.

Useful Additions: It is useful to have a fine liner pen in black for detail. A white gel pen is also useful for adding highlights to your coloured image.
