Harbour Bridge from The East Wind

Being Australian myself I fell in love with this image even more than I normally do with Unky's images! The Harbour Bridge comes with two versions. This version I have coloured AND one with fireworks! I will admit, as much as I LOVE the scene with fireworks, I haven't coloured it as I had an idea strike me straight away. I wanted a sunset! For this image, I have used Distress Ink pads, watercolour paint and Prismacolour pencils.

I have been asked how I have created my sunset. In short, I used a water pen and my Distress Ink ink pads. I laid plain water in the background first to moisten the paper but careful not to go over areas I didn't want painted. Then I laid the colours in with the water brush making sure to gently blend them together without muddying the colours. I have promised to do a tutorial on how I have done it, so stay tuned for that!

My latest for The East Wind

I have been terrible at keeping you all updated with my projects for The East Wind! I guess that is the problem when I had been focusing my shares only in a large number of colouring and stamp groups on Facebook! I do sincerely apologize to those who follow me. I will endeavor to be much more regular with these amazing images!

My first card is using "Dear Santa" which was coloured with Copics.

'Marvelous Spatuletail'  coloured with Copics and the background done with Distress Inks.

Aurora 'Sharing Autumn' also coloured with Copics.

'Trapped' Coloured with Copics. This was my very first attempt at rainbow colouring!

'Aurora 'Siesta III'  also coloured with Copics.

Aurora 'Balloons in Copic. this was a really good image to practice transparency!

'Gastwown steamclock '  coloured with Prismacolours on heavy watercolour paper. 

Want to know what is great about these last two images? they also come merged as one! You can find it HERE

WHEW! That was alot to take in I know! I wish you all a wonderful day/night.
