Welcome to another Conie Fong Art and Design inspiration project! This month, I decided to color a sweet bride image, called Summer Bride. She comes in two other formats, Summer Dreams (wearing a hat and an apron) and Summer Blossoms (wearing a flower circlet and an apron). You can purchase each individually, or get all three, HERE.
I created a standard A2 card this month (don't faint). For those who don't know, A2 is standard note card size, 5 1/2" tall and 4 1/4" wide. It was hard work coloring a smaller image, since I have been doing bigger sizes recently!
I colored the image with Copics. I spent a lot of time on her hair and on her dress. I ended up making her dress gray, rather than white. I made a mistake, and rather than toss the image, I just embraced the gray! (Unlike the gray in my hair, which I do NOT embrace!)
I am having such fun coloring and learning new techniques. I have been trying to color every few days to prevent getting rusty!
Thanks for looking! For more inspiration, visit the Conie Fong Facebook Group!
