THREE IN ONE


CARD 3 - MONOCHROMATIC

A few nights ago I decided to colour the same image in three different colour schemes.  I had some flexi markers that I hadn't really used so decided I would use them for one, they were mostly pastel shades so not being brave enough to made a skin tone I did use Copics for the skin.


The second one I decided to go Sepia although I don't think it is a true Sepia although I did only use the copics earth family of browns.


For the third image I wanted to try mono-tone which is something I haven't done before - I have coloured an images mostly using grey's but have usually kept the skin tone normal.  This was my first entire monochromatic image.


My favourite is the third image the black and white image and so far is the favourite of those that have seen all three images!
