and with that in mind (sorry!), I thought I would share a card I made in vintage sepia colours rather than using the traditional bright christmasy colours we normally associate with that big red chap Santa Claus!
Now I didn't come up with these colours by accident, no I was scrolling through the tutorials already up on the Spectrum Noir blog and came across a gorgeous card by Kalina, who is just amazing at colouring, she talked in great depth about how to achieve the different colour tones that she produced.
Me being me of course I had to see if I could use my pencils instead of the Spectrum Noir alcohol markers that Kalina had used, so I printed off the list of colours and got out my marker and pencil colour charts and cross referenced the colours to come up with a similar tone of pencil to marker combination.
So for instance, for Red Kalina used TN6-9 and EB4, the pencil equivalents are - 089, 095, 096, 097.
Here are the rest of the colours:
Red -095, 096, 097
Skin - 003, 085
Black - 098, 102
White - 003, 102
Reindeer - 085, 107, 095
Antlers - 085, 098.
I hope you like my spin on Vintage sepia, you can see Kalina's original post by clicking here.
See you again soon!
