Promarker Tutorial: 3 Colour Vintage

Today i found this wonderful tutorial on Randi's blog showing how to colour your image in a vintage style with just 3 colours; It's a great tutorial, but the only problem i had with it, is that Randi uses Copic's and i don't have any of them.  So using Randi's tutorial as my starting point i decided to create the following tutorial, going for a similar vintage feel but using Promarkers instead.

 The 3 colours i chose were Satin, Almond, and Dusky Pink.

Following Randi's tutorial, i used my palest colour, in this case Satin, and outlined the whole of my image.

I then took my 2nd colour, Almond, and added some midtones to the image.

I then took my 3rd colour, Dusky Pink and added the darkest tones to my image.

I then worked into my image more with all 3 colours, trying to create a more blended effect.

To finish my image i took my blender, and blended my palest colour and the white areas, to try and get rid of any obvious lines; i also added more of my darkest colour in places to give me the depth i wanted.  You could if you wanted continue adding colouring and blending to get even more depth into your image, but i decided i quite liked the effect i'd achieved here.

All i need to do now, is make a card to use this gorgeous 'Glamour' Cheeky Cherry on.  Please make sure you visit Randi's blog, as i would not have attempted this tutorial without having gained inspiration from her awesome work and wonderful tutorial.

Thank you for visiting

Thanks Suzi for making an alternative for promarkers based on Randis blog. I read her blog and how she crated the vintage really took my eye but like you I have no Copic markers so I was thrilled to see your blog and what you had created. Thanks both to Randi and yourself for 2 awesome blogs,
