Soft Lines Curly Locks Kiki

Hiya it’s me again :0) This time I’d like to show you a card that I’ve made using a new technique that I’ve come across on Facebook. As I don’t have any light shades of Memento Ink, I thought that I’d try this technique out on a digi image.

For my card I’ve used the gorgeous image ‘Curly Locks Kiki’ from Elisabeth Bell and I’ve coloured her using my ProMarkers, FlexMarkers and AquaMarkers.

To achieve the no lines look on the above image, I set the transparency setting to 10% in Photoshop. It was quite daunting when I first started to colour as I had to really think about where the shadows would be. The was my first attempt at this and I’m quite pleased with the result and would love to know what you think (please be kind :0) )
The DP I created myself and is part of my Vintage Cottage collection which you can get from my Etsy shop.
The flowers I also created myself using my slice machine and other various dies.
Challenges I’m entering this card into are as follows:-
Thanks for stopping by :0)
