How I colored This Image

Last day of September and Die's Digis stamps sponsorship of Die Cut Divas.  You still have time to join in the challenge right here

I thought I'd show you how I color and how things change from the beginning to the end.  I'm going to share a set of pictures where I started coloring an image and took photos at different stages of development of the entire card.

I kept a list of all the colors, but after getting organized with my new cabinet, I have unfortunately lost my list of colors.  I am part of a Toastmaster's club and made a Powerpoint to show how I make my cards and color in the images, so I was not as intent on tracking the colors.  Sorry, guys.  But I'll show you the progression from black and white to final card.

I started coloring the second mouse.

I moved from mice to a tube of paint and the paint hanging off the brush.

I'm just about finished here.

I thought an ombre sky effect would give an appearance of watercolor just to make this fun.

Finally, my finished card.

Fabulous. Fun to see the final card take shape as you color.
