Promarker Colouring Tutorial – Auburn hair

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.

Proverbs 1:7

I am sharing something a little different today as I thought I’d do a colouring tutorial.

This is a cropped image kindly provided by Mo Manning and the full version is available here.  The papers I have used are from HOTP ‘s Chocolate Dipped range.

This is the card I eventually made with the image.


I started her hair with Honeycomb, using it to surround all the highlights. I decided where the highlights would be by looking at the curls and deciding which part of each curl would be at the front and which behind.


I then layered Ginger on top, moving away from the highlight areas which are left white.


The next colour to be added was Terracotta.


Then Rosewood.


Finally I used the broad tip to colour the whole area with Mustard.  This blends the colours and makes her highlights golden instead of white.


Colours used were:

Hair: Honeycomb, Ginger, Terracotta, Rosewood, Mustard.

Skin: Blush, Sunkissed Pink, Coral, soft pink

Tee: Lime Gree, Pear Green

Challenges: – hair – stamp or digistamp – paper chase – anything goes

This is my first attempt at a tutorial – please let me know what you think!

Yours in crafting,
