One of our new features on Sparkle and Glitter will be the presentation of Guest Design Team members who catch our eye because of the way they handle Rick's images.
Anne Brown was a winner in one of our challenges and we were all impressed by the sculptural quality of her colouring-a very original and unique thing about her work.
Rick invited Anne to do a GDT spot using a new, unpublished image BALL GOWN IN THE PARISIANNE STYLE and here are the results:
Anne did this lovely finished project in Blue and also sent a coloured version in green:
Here's what Anne said about her colouring and products:
To answer your questions, I use Copics starting with the lightest shade and layer on the darker ones in progression. I use a lot of ink because I use so many colors to achieve the density of color but I like the results I get. I also use Pale Blue Gray (B60) for shadowing when I don't want the effect the grays and browns provide and E95 (Flesh Pink) and sometimes V000 (Pale Heath) to give the human form more dimension as well as white gel pen (Jelly Roll brand), smudged with my fingertips, to bring out the highlights in some areas. I use X-Press It Blending Card though I'm looking for a cheaper alternative.

As it says in the caption Anne is from Texas near Houston-I know we will all look forward to seeing more of her work in the future---
