GDT Rocking it for Top Tip Tuesday...

Hello there,

I was recently asked by Top Tip Tuesday Challenge to be a guest designer and I of course said yes :D  It's a fabulous challenge and as the name suggests the Design Team come up each week with some fantastic Top Tips on tons of different crafty things...new design ideas, how to's and quick tips, so if you haven't found them yet just click on their name above and hop on over to join.

Anyway, the sponsor this time is Kenny K Stamps and as I need to make way more male cards (I never seem to do them) I chose to work with this gorgeous little rocker - Anima Rocker
The theme is a Bingo board and I have used the centre vertical line, Embossing, Sentiment, Die Cut (a Tip, when die cutting large word die's, its worth a quick pass to emboss so the edges look totally finished and awesome)

For colours used see list of below 

Inside I once again used off cuts to match it in x
Here's what I used to make this one:
Image: Anima Rocker by Kenny K
Die set: My Favourite Things Dienamics Blueprints #11
Colouring and card base: Neenah Solar White marker paper, Matt Black 300gsm cardstock and Spectrum Noir markers by Crafter's Companion
Skin: FS2, 4, 9, TN3, CR3
Hair: BGR2, 3, 5, HB1, 3
Clothes: IG2, 4, 5, 6, 10, TBI, 2, 3, 6, DR7, 4, CR11
Shading: BG7, 5

Top Tip: When creating a shadow to enhance the dimension of your image, don't colour all the way around it!  Remember where your light source was coming from and then add shadow only where you think it would be the deepest.  You can 'map' this in the lightest possible shade first if you are a little nervous as it won't show later :D  You can see where I have added my BR7 and 5 to on the pics :D

Here's a couple more pics:

Thank you for popping by as always, and do hop over to this weeks challenge at Top Tip Tuesday
