My weekend workshop @ PFP

This is a copy and paste of my WEEKEND WORKSHOP from April 9th

Welcome to this weeks Digi Friday. Today I (Ida) will show you how I have coloured my image for next weeks challenge. The image is sponsored by POLLY CRAFT. As we get to choose the image I just had to get this cute little kitten "Blossoming Friendship from the Spring Things series.


  • I start by colouring the cat with the lightest colour I want to use (Warm grey 1). I then add two layers of shades with Warm Grey 2 and 3. To make them blend together I colour over my image again using the lightest of my shades, Warm Grey 1. I use small circle motions to better wet the areas where there are shades.

  • I do the same when colouring the three, flowers and grass. I use the lightest of the shades in the colours I want to use, and then I add a darker colour to make the shades. Before I go over the image with the lightest of my colours
  • On the little cute bird I have just added a orange mouth and used Warm Grey 1 to add some shadows, before I've gone over the image with the Blender pen. I usually don't use the blender pen, but for areas you want to blend to white it works great!
  • Here are the colours I have used to colour my image.

Thanks for looking and good luck colouring.

Flott tutorial. Har akkurat begynt å prøve meg litt fram med ProMarkers så dette var til god hjelp.
