So let's see what the team have made for you this week...


Nikky...I love East Wind images and when I saw this one called Blow Kiss Lucy Loo (get it here) I immediately wanted to do her in really ice tones so the perfect combo was the one above on the left for me...I didnt even colour the skin on this, I literally just swept a little skin colour on shaded parts and went over with a blender to soften it and added some 7210 and blended too (the photo is a little weird seems to be showing some shadows which arent there lol)...
Colours: Skin - 4120, 7210
Red 5240
Blues: 7220 with 7110 over top to make it muted for the mid teal colour
Dark blues: 7195, 7185, 7180, 7165, 7220, 7240
9400 grey

Anjie - I was given this lovely image to use, she is called Aurora Spring Melody.

Claire C: I've used this amazing image from our sponsor, she's called Magnified Star and I loved creating this canvas with her! Such a fun image to colour, I used the second colour palette as I wanted to add a splash of red.
