In this post I thought I would just give some basic tips for colouring with Blendabilities... oops... I almost wrote Belindabilities : ] I keep doing that!
This stamp set " Partridge & Pears" is quite good to colour with blendabilities, because the sections are small enough to be coloured easily, but not so small that they're too fiddly, even though there is a lot of leaves.
|Tree Trunk & Branches: Crumb Cake- You can tell I wasn't being very fussy here, just using strokes, because trees are streaky : ) Again remember to keep the direction of your light source consistent.|
|Leaves: Old Olive- I guess if I could give any guidelines here it would be starting in the corner of the leaf closest the stem, then build on that. Basically you just want to add dimension with the dark & light shades, so the leaves don't look flat.|
|Fruit: Daffodil Delight & Old Olive- I guess this is the baby fruit, it's so small you only need to dot it with the bullet end.|
|I know all the other photos are probably a bit small to see all the details that I've tried to explain, so hopefully this helps give a better picture.|

|I coloured & cut out a few extra leaves because the card just looked like it needed something else.|
Leaves: Old Olive & Daffodil Delight.
