Some Odd Girl May Release: Beachy Mae

Hi Friends!

I'm here today back with another day of releases at Some Odd Girl!

Today's new stamp set is JUST ADORABLE, I can't stop colouring her in!

Take a look at Beachy Mae

To create that sunset background, here's how I started:

I googled 'sunset' and had a look at a few different varieties of colours that are in sunsets (I obviously have seen many, but when colouring one, I wanted to see what variences I could make).

I used my Gelatos and scribbled some colour for each of the 'bands' I wanted.

Then I took a wet paintbrush and swiped over each colour (cleaning my brush in between) and then slightly moving back over the previous colour just a little, to get it to blend. (So I wet the orange, back and forth, to get it to smooth out and cover more area, then I cleaned my brush, wet it again, and painted over the yellow. When the yellow was pretty close to smooth, I slightly moved into the orange, to get them to blend. Next I did the pink, and moved back into the yellow a little etc)

 I added some teal glitter from Glitter Ritz to her bathers, sarong and hat. You can see it in this detail shot:

A little glossy accents over the glasses, and it was done! Such a great image to colour in!

Well I hope you'll stroll on over to the Some Odd Girl Blog with me now, to check out the rest of the Design Team's fabulous creations!

See you again tomorrow for the second set's release! It's a fun one!
