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.
