Coloring Tutorial

Hey there, it's Tuesday and time for another Jacksonbelle Embellishments challenge. I gotta say, this week's challenge is probably the best one ever (snicker)!!! It's to go through my cards and pick one to CASE. I'm having a blast checking out everyone's cards so far. If you decide to play along, please use the keyword JBE040 when uploading your cards!

As an added treat, I came up with a coloring tutorial. You can find it here on the Jacksonbelle blog. I hope you try out some of my tips!!! I thought I would go ahead and show y'all how I used the image in my coloring tutorial on a card.

I absolutely love this Welcome Home set by Lizzie Anne Designs. It's so much fun to play with and perfect to practice coloring on. I went ahead and added some dimension to the image by raising the tree top, bush and mailbox with dimensionals. I then went over all the green parts with Celery Shimmerz and added a Basic Grey Bittersweet button as the tire swing. Now do you see why I colored my house orange? I used this fabulous pattern paper by Fancy Pants and pulled my color palette directly from it. The layout comes from Sketch Challenge 215. I hope you play along with the challenge this week. If you need some more inspiration, check out what the other gals on the design team came up with:
