Rainbow cakes

Hi all back again!  Phew!  Two posts in one day you say?  I know!  I surprised myself.  LOL  Anyway I am back again to show you Beth Duff Designs Let's Eat Cake set.  I keep reverting back to my rainbow phase but who can help that?  Cake is suppose to be bright colours I reckon.  Anyway here is my take this week. 
 

You can join in all the previews and any competitions Beth runs by joining the Beth Duff Designs Fan Club .  There are some fun sets out from her first release and some free digi images to be had.  Keep an eye out over the next few weeks for the new digi challenge.  Some very cute images to be played with. 
Till next time!

Here is the image and first colour used. 
 

Adding some shadows in with my darkest colour. 
 


Bit by bit, add in the colours shown in the pictures.  

 
 
Add in the lighter colour for highlights
 
 
Now add in some more shadowed areas
 

 
Smooth out some of the shading. 
 

 
Add a little more depth with a mid range colour (C5)
 
And voila.  You have your very own Galactic character.  Not quite 50 shades of Grey but plenty enough.  lol 
I hope you liked this little turorial.  I have to say I love my Copics. 
Thanks for looking. 

Queen Of Hearts

Back again with a shaker card this time!  I haven't made many of these but I thought this fitted this character perfectly.  Queen o...
