We have a new challenge starting today at Operation Write Home Stars & Stamps, the theme is "Fall" and I found a wonderful fall themed digital image to use! This pumpkin image is from Whimsy & Stars Studio, it's called Blessed Harvest.
A "fall theme" sounds so good living in Arizona right now too, our high temperatures are still 110+ I don't know about you but I'm so ready for cooler temperatures even if we don't get to see all the leaves turning different colors... anything under 100 degrees would be a welcome relief.
I love coloring pumpkins and had so much fun coloring this digital image. I used Copic markers E41, E42, E43, E44, B21, E35, E39, E44, E47, E49, Y04, YR02, YR04, YR07, YG03, YG67.
I was following a tutorial from Marianne Walkers blog she'd made in 2007 or 2008 coloring pumpkins and teaching about color contrast and high contrast. The blue background on this really scared me, she called for B23 and the colorless blender. I had everything colored and added the B23 and thought I'd ruined the whole thing, yikes! I continued on with B21 and used the colorless blender to add dots to push the color away and blend it out more. I like the finished affect and was happy I could save it.
I hope you have time in your busy week to come play in our Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown challenge using a fall theme!
