a tutorial of sorts on colouring "rain" drops

Good afternoon! I am sorry I did have a tutorial for you... but unfortunately I had technical difficulties again and the video has not worked properly! I'll get it right.. next time for sure!! So instead I am sharing some finished pics WITH tips on how I did the water/ rain on the umbrella/ puddle!

 I have used a Spesch stamp (my favourite... I wonder if you can guess why) of a girl with an umbrella... her name is Samantha!!


 

#1 -  I have used Xpress It Clear gel to create a glossy puddle and water droplets - you can also use Glossy accents/ Dimensional Magic... I also added some opaque white over the gloss to give it a bit more "dimension"


#2 - I left the areas for the water droplets without colour then at the end added in blue and then opaque white

 #3 - This time I coloured it all and then took my blender marker to push the colour aside to make the water droplets .. I then added a little extra colour to give some dimension to the droplets!

#4 - The final example used a few more layers of colour... firstly leaving the water droplet areas without colour and then afterwards coming back to add layers of colour to give the droplets the dimension... as well as AGAIN some opaque white.

Hope that the pictures and instructions make some sense!!

I  also hope you might join us in our current challenge
