Tilda Birthday Card

Here is my third and final card...

This is my second attempt with my new promarkers I'm pleased with how the green shading turned out but it's definitely going to take a lot lot more practice to get the results i've seen a lot of you doing on your blogs! Here's hoping i eventually get there.

  2. Hi Jemma, Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog. The promarkers are really easy to use, shouldn't take long to get the hang of them. I couldn't colour with anything else.

    If you're limited to colours it's easy enough to shade with the same pen. Go all over with it then just layer up where you want it darker ie shadows (around the edges, on the folds of clothes and around the hairline). The best skin colours are ivory all over then blush to add colour.

    When you get more colours just use nearest colours and blend them together.

    There are some great tutorials here

    Hope all this helps. Are you on Docrafts? Couldn't find email addy on here so sorry about long post.
