Hello everyone! Mayra here with you today from Mayras Designs with a fun Tutorial Thursday.
I wanted to share the steps I use to color the adorable image from the Happy Boo To You stamp set.
I just wanted to add a disclaimer, lol I am not an expert at coloring, this is just the way that works for me. I think it is important to have fun! I hope you enjoy this tutorial.
I go between starting with my darker color and my lightest color. It just depends on that moment for me. For this image today I began with the lightest color for the areas that will be orange filling in the entire area. I also did the first layer for my green areas, the skin, and the hair. I started with Y000, for the pumpkin and hat. For the leaves, I began with YG01. For the skin, I started with my darkest color which is E23. For the hair, I began with E31.
I then went in and added along the edges Y08 to the pumpkin area and hat.
FYG2 to the leaves. E21 to the skin and E35 to the hair.
Then I added Y17 to the pumpkin and hat areas, YG13 to the leaves, E51 to the skin, and E57 to the hair, boots, and stem.
Next, I added YR07 to the areas that will be orange. YG17 to the leaves. E50 to the skin.
E35 to the hair, boots, and stem.
I love when I add the darker colors, the image begins to come together!
I then add YR27, a bit of YR24 to the orange areas. YG67 to the green areas.
I do not have a photo of that step, I am so sorry it didn't come out.
I then added YR07, Y17, and Y08 to the pumpkin areas.
YG17, FYG2, and YG01 to the leaves, and E31 to the hair, stem, and boots.
I went over the skin once again, using E23, E21, E51, E50 and a bit of R12.
To finish off the pumpkin area I added the Y000 to blend the colors a bit more.
I really had fun coloring this image!
I hope you enjoy and feel inspired to create!!
Thank you very much for stopping by!
Wishing you a wonderful and blessed day!
