Hi All!! I hope everyone had a fabulous weekend. Mine was AWESOME not only did I finally get to finish the prisma color tutorial I have been promising you guys but I also met Jen del Muro from iheart2stamp!! I had a blast spending Friday with Jen and her ADORABLE baby Ellie. We went to the Children's Museum here in Houston and let the kiddos play. I was sorta embarrassed because Jen's DD is the sweetest and most well-behaved little girl ever and then we have my DS which is full of energy and going through the terrible two's. Let's just say he kept wanting to eat her snacks (even though he had his own food) and stole her ball in the play area. Luckily Jen was a teacher and had some great tips for me. (Thanks Jen)
So now to the tutorial. I made a step by step guide on how I like to color with my prisma colors. There are many ways to use them and this is just my version. In this tutorial I will only use my prisma colors and blending stumps. If you don't have prisma colors and blending stumps Kim from MFT has an awesome deal she calls her Favorite 48. Make sure to check it out. I will also have another tutorial using the gamsol soon. Here we go..
Step three: I then took the darker shade and highlighted the edges of the head and body. I then blended that together as well. When blending with the stump I like to use a circular motion. Also if I feel its not dark enough I repeat step three until I get the desired look.
Step four: Now that the body is done I start on the lion mane. Again I pick two shades of brown one being lighter than the other. I color in the whole mane with the lighter shade and blend with the paper stump.
Step five: I follow by outlining with the darker brown around the edges. I blend that with the stump as well.
Step six: Now that the lion is finished I like to add a neutral shade around the outline of the whole lion or image to make it pop on the white card stock. For this image I used two shades of bluish gray. I start with the lighter version and then accent with the darker and blend everything together.
Step seven: Use the finished image to make a fabulous card!!
