Its all black & white (and a hint of pink)

Evening all!  Gosh I'm struggling tonight!  My mouse has broke and I'm having to use the touchpad aaargh hate hate hate it!  So not used to using it, driving me dilly lol!

Anyway have a new one to share tonight, will try and post up another tutorial tomorrow and start on some Teddy Bo and Magnolias in the week :)

This one is a new image I *had* to have because its got my name (kinda!) all over it!  This one is called FAIRY VIXX haha seriously!  OK not me, t'is the other Vixx!  Its a new company just started called My Crafty Heart and they've named their first set of digis after their design team, sweet!

I wasn't sure what colours to use for this one, I think we all have those days where you rummage through papers and nothing seems to gel until I found the new paper pad I bought over xmas which is just black and white so I went with that theme and decided to keep the colouring light and airy, it also shows you how the tutorial on light clothes transfers, I just added a light pink and rose pink for the shadow bits and used the blender to keep it light.

I know a lot of people struggle with blonde hair, as I've recommended its a case of try it and write down the ones you like.  I can say use this and that or you could go elsewhere and get different colours so write them all down, try them out and tick the ones you like the best :)

This blonde hair combo was satin, pastel yellow and cinnamon so there's another one for your books!


I'd like to enter this into...

She's gorgeous Vix, and I have had a lovely look at all your great tutorials - I have a little book where I jot down all the different combos I come across (sad person, I need to get a life!), and I love your blonde hair on this image, so going to try that next
