Spectrum Noir's First Ever Blog Hop

Hi there and welcome to the very first Spectrum Noir Blog Hop!  This week our entire design team has come together to start off summer with a grand celebration of Yellow - the color of summer!

If you have landed here from Leann's blog, you are hopping in the right direction.  If not, pop over to the Spectrum Noir Blog so you do not miss a single stop!
Hi en welkom bij de allereerste Spectrum Noir Blog Hop! Deze week is het gehele DesignTeam bijeen gekomen om de zomer eens goed te starten met een geweldige shout-out voor GEEL - de kleur van de zomer!
Als je hier bent gekomen door Leann's blog te bezoeken, dan ben je op de goede hop-weg. Zo niet, ga dan even naar het Spectrum Noir Blog, zodat je geen enkele stop zult missen van deze hop! :)

And this is the project I like to show you. Have to admit I'm not really a "yellow-type of person", so it was hard to find yellow colors in my paperstash, but yeah... I like the outcome very, very much :)
En dit is het project dat ik jullie graag wil laten zien. Ik moet toegeven dat ik niet echt een "geel-type qua persoon" ben, dus het was een behoorlijke uitdaging om gele papiertjes in m'n papierverzameling te vinden, maar... ik vind dit project toch wel héél erg leuk! :)

And a detailphoto, so you can see the glitter as well..

And even though I'm not a yellowtype of person, it was really easy to color Tilda.

I used the following colors:
Skin: FS1, FS2, FS3, FS4, FS8, CR3
Hair: TN7, TN8, TN9, EB4
Dress and wings (yellow part): GB2, GB3, GB4, GB5, GB6, blender
Shoes and wings (turquoise part): GT2, GT3, BG1
Ground: BG1, BG2, BG3
Shading around Tilda: BT1, BT2

Hoewel ik geen geelkleurig type ben, was het echt heel gemakkelijk Tilda in te kleuren.
Ik heb de volgende kleuren gebruikt:
Huid: FS1, FS2, FS3, FS4, FS8, CR3

Haren: TN7, TN8, TN9, EB4
Jurk en vleugels (geel): GB2, GB3, GB4, GB5, GB6, blender
Schoenen en vleugels(turquoise): GT2, GT3, BG1
Grond: BG1, BG2, BG3
Shaduw rondom Tilda: BT1, BT2

I'm always working from light to dark and back to light again. I think it's the easiest way, but hee... the best part of it all is you can also start with the darkest color going to the lightest one. Just what you feel most comfortable with.
I also used my BG1 for making the shoes and wings (turquoise parts) just a little less turquoise. Love this pen, specially when not using bright colors in your patterned papers. You can really soften your color by coloring this one as last.
Ik werk altijd van licht naar donker en weer terug naar de lichtste kleur. Ik denk dat dit de gemakkelijkste weg is, maar... het mooie hiervan is dat je zelf kunt beslissen of je dit ook doet óf dat je werkt van donker naar licht en weer terug naar donker. Net wat je zelf het prettigste vindt werken.
Ik heb ook mijn BG1 marker gebruikt om de schoenen en vleugels (turquoise gedeelte) een beetje minder turquoise te maken. Ik ben echt dol op deze marker, vooral als je niet al te felle kleuren in je papier hebt zitten. Je kunt dan de kleur net wat minder fel maken.

We are excited to announce that our new Spectrum Noir website and blog is up and running.
