Make it Crafty + Saturated Canary Hair Tutorial Blog Hop!

21:00:00

Hi everyone! 


**Just Quickly I just wanted to say a huuuuuuuge thank you to all of your lovely comments yesterday about selling my cards!!! My heart absolutely melted...you guys are seriously the best and your comments just mean the world to me. It certainly makes all of this worthwhile :) SO I have uploaded just a few to ebay to see how it will go :) You can find them here: 

If there are any you really want that aren't listed let me know and I will see how I go :) Also I am happy to do commissions for anyone too! I feel so silly offering though since you all make amazing cards anyway :) 
Thanks again!! xxx ***

Ok back to it! Super duper exciting news today! There is a fun hop that I KNOW you will just want to join in...a collaboration between the talented Zoe from Make it Crafty and Krista from Saturated Canary!! Here are a few deets on the hop:

Zoe's excited to be releasing another colouring tutorial and it is on a topic that everyone always seems to want to improve... Colouring Hair!!  And in particular this e-book is, 'Colouring long hair in fine detail!'

When Zoe was trying to decide on an image that would be perfect for this tutorial she just knew she had to contact the gorgeous Krista Smith from Saturated Canary. And... Excitingly Krista has illustrated and generously donated the perfect character exploding with big luscious hair full of layers and bumps! Just perfect for you to learn all of Zoe's little secrets to colouring finely detailed hair.

Ooooh and she is so pretty let me tell you! You will only be able to get this image through the ebook and you won't be disappointed let me tell you! This was the BEST tutorial I have done and just look at how this beauty colours up:


WOW WOW WOW!!! Pretty or what!!! :D I decided to colour her up with my favourite hair colours. Here are the copics that I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R11
Hair: E21, E25, E29 (lots of layers just like the tutorial if you are trying to achieve the same results :)
Dress: R32, R35, R36, E18

I haven't made her into a card yet but stay tuned!!! I am working on it now :)

Also, we thought it would be fun to have a little hop (and a few give aways of course) where the fabulous MiC girls and Krista have followed Zoe's tips and tricks to colouring long straight hair. Don't forget to hop along for your chance to win! :D

    103. Breathtakingly beautiful Alyce - her hair looks utterly amazing.

      I have to admit hair is my weakness, but I think it has a lot to do with my printer ink smudging and its kind of knocked my confidence a bit. I tend to be really light on colouring hair, aiming for less is more to avoid the smudging and ruining the whole picture :(

      I have tried swapping printers, inks and paper, but I guess its just something I havent been so lucky with :)

      You are, and continue to be an absolute inspiration to me :)

      hugs

    104. Oh wow!!! You sure are the best that I have ever seen! Just love the precision that you use to do your colouring! Out standing...
