Colouring with Promarkers #4 Tights/socks

To complete this batch of "How to's" I'm going to show you how I colour the tights on the Sitting Gorjuss Girl from Sugar Nellie. Again, I have stamped the image using Memento ink on Concord card.
Firstly I chose 2 shades each from 2 different colour families, in this case; lilac & amethyst and meadow green & apple 

First I coloured the first pale shade onto alternate stripes 

Then I dotted the darker shade onto either side of each stripe 

Then repeat those 2 stages for the other leg

And do the same with the other colour family, in this case the lilac and amethyst

Once the promarkers have dried, I take either a sakura opaque white gelly roll or an Inkssentials opaque white pen and draw a narrow line down the pale part of the tights - preferably in one stroke.

and here's how the image looks when its finished.... ready to be cut out and added to a card or project.

I found your blog via SplitCoast and I am very glad I did. This tutorial is fabulous! I use Prismacolor markers (won't spend the extra for Copics!) and I know I can apply your information just as well to them as to your Promarkers.

Your blog is delightful and I will be spending more time here I am sure- as well as checking out some of your sidebar links that look interesting.

Thanks for taking the time to do this for everyone!

Fabulous tutorial, for some one like me, that´s VERY new in colouring stamps.
I´ve just started collecting Pro Markers, and think these pencils work great for me.

Now I will be even better!!

Thank you for these tutorials - they are very user friendly. I've got Copics but want to add some Promarkers to my kit. I'll start with the ones for the challenges and work through the ones you have suggested. Thank you.
