Heat Wave

Seaming as though we Brits are having a summer heat wave (wink) I thought I would get in the mood with me next card.

Actually I had to put on my heating tonight so I was soon feeling as though I was in the tropics.

This one is Gloria b by Mo’s Digital Pencil she also comes in a Caucasian version.

I always find it a challenge to colour Ethnic skin getting the tones right but I’m quite happy with this one.

Gloria b1

Coloured with Copic markers and Prisma Pencils, Ribbon slider from Mei Flowers check them out as they are very reasonably priced. Ribbon is from Ribbon Carousel, and papers are Bo Bunny.

I haven't had this skin colour yet but I don't think it would be easy to do right but yours looks perfect Jak. It is so good to see the summer with your card as I really don't know where it has gone too for us here, if anyone finds it please point it in our direction lol...

It is hard to find images like this, my daughter's boyfriend is 6'3" with an afro, it hard to find an image to send to him. The colouring is perfect as usual. Let's hope the cheeriness of this card sparks the summer into action.

Great colouring of the skin.
A card to make you wish you were there, lazily enjoying the sun with a cool drink in hand. Anne
