Spectrum Noir Inspiration

Hello there,

It's a fabulous thing that as a part of the Spectrum Noir Design Team we get to go back over our colleagues tutorials on the Spectrum Noir Website and take inspiration from just one of them to influence our own design once a month.

I am amazed at the ideas and inspiration stored in there by some amazing designers so if you haven't spent some time strolling through the tutorials, hop over, you won't believe how much is there......BUT....finish reading here first lol

Today's inspiration came from an older tutorial (told you I'd spent some time on there lol), first published in 2012....

The tutorial talked about dress and hat shading and it is from there I took inspiration for this design....

No hat I know, but the tutorial really made me think about simple shading of clothing instead of trying to hard to add details (like folds) that aren't there!

Here's the link to my inspiration Colouring the dress and the hat

And here's what I used  to make mine:
Spectrum Noir markers:
Skin: TN3, FS9 , 6 ,4, 2
Hair: GB10, 6, 4, TN8
Clothes: LG1, 2, 3, DR3
Bunny: PL1, 2

Image: Dollshouse stamp by Little Darlings Rubber Stamps
Papers: First Edition
Flowers: Petal Lu from That Craft Place
Matt Black card (the only black card I use, and is my top tip) from Crafter's Companion
