Decades - 40's Fashion all in Pinks

Well, and a little Purple! lol

Hello there,

One of the great things about being on the Spectrum Noir Education Design Team (and there are many many many great things about being on the team!) is that we take time once per month to go back over our team mates tutorials and pick one to follow.  It's such an awesome thing to do, I love it, it really gives me a chance to breath, follow the advice and I always learn something about my own style and how I approach colour :D

This month I decided to follow an awesome tutorial by my colleague, the uber colourist Laine Webb which you can find on the Spectrum Noir Blog HERE and here's mine using Laine's colours and tutorial:

Phew...I'm not a pink kinda person, so this was a real challenge :D
Here's what I used:
Copy and Inspired by a Tutorial by Laine Webb:
Style: A6 Tent Card
Image: Saturated Canary – 40’s Fashion
Spectrum Noir Markers:
Skin: FS2, 4, 6, 9, TN2
Hair: BP1, 2. 3, 5, DR7
Clothes: PL1, 2, 3, 5
Neenah Solar White card; Crafter’s Companion Matt Black card;
Collal All Purpose glue;

Other: White Versamark ink; Sentiment stamp – Little Darlings Rubber Stamps Vintage Words; Corner Punch.

Here's more pics, I mounted her simply as she's so colourful I thought you know what, let her speak for herself!

I hope you pop over to the Spectrum Noir blog and check out Laine's tutorial, and have a look around as there are many many more awesome tutorials there...I'm off to pick which one I'd like to try for next month!
