Tress Winking

Hey Peeps :)


Today I'm sharing a card I made for Making Cards Magazine, using Tress Winking. I think Tress is one of my favourite Make it Crafty images, I love the challenge of colouring her hair and making the back area look like it's tucked behind and under. Know what I mean? Zoe's Colouring Long Hair in Fine Detail is a fab resource for this, and taught me loads. I kept the rest of the card Clean and Simple, mostly so that Tress is front and centre, but also because it broke my heart to cut these papers, I'd been stroking them for months!

What an adorable image with superb colouring and a beautiful choice of colours. A truly inspirational card. You have inspired to get my copics back out and practice more colouring. Thanks for sharing.

Happy crafting

Gorgeous colouring and I just love her hair, I've put her on my wish list now :D
Those papers are delish, and I feel your pain on cutting into fav papers in our stashes, maybe we need to buy two just in case lol

She is truly gorgeous and your colouring of her is superb as always. Love the papers and fully understand your reluctance to cut in to them, I have a sizeable stash of those 'uncuttable' papers myself.

Stunning colouring especially the gorgeous long hair, you can really see the shape of each section and the lovely texture. I think I have this image waiting to be coloured as a long hair challenge!

The design is perfect to show off the lovely Tress but also those lush papers :-)

Big hugs, Kat xx
