Born to Sparkle

Hello!  Today I am sharing my version of the April monthly Kit & Clowder colouring class. This month the class image was Sparkle from Mos Digital Pencil. I elected to use the class image but you could apply the same colouring techniques to an image of your choice.

I must admit Sparkle's pleats and folds were a bit of a challenge but that is one of the many things I like about the classes. They push me to explore images and techniques I would not normally try.

The first two pictures below are work in progress shots of Sparkle. The second picture was taken before the back ground was added. Petty intimidating to have the image all coloured then try a background technique you haven't done before.

My mind starts with the "what ifs" when it comes to backgrounds. Does yours? Time to pull on the big girl panties!

Whew... the background came together. Sparkle is tapping across the page with a surrounding background in splendid fashion complete with pleated dress, flowing boa and bouncing beads.
