Merry and BRIGHT - Make It Crafty Challenge


I love a good challenge and was so happy to hear that Zoe of Make It Crafty was going to be bringing back challenges on the Make It Crafty Challenge blog.  This months challenge is Glow.  This was challenging mostly because it doesn't come natural to me to have reflecting light from a glowing object, in this case her wand.  I also was terrified of the large space around the girl and how I was going to fill it.  The image is called Fairy Star Digi Stamp.


I went with a Starry Night type circle mostly because it was easier to sketch in my sky then fill in rather than just go in to a smooth coloring.  The first thing I did was take my wand and draw a yellow circle where I wanted the glow to end and then filled in parts of the girl where I think there would be light glow.  After coloring the sky I tackled the girl and tried to put in shadows too.


In the end, I think it turned out pretty good but I could use more practice.  Join the challenge, it's really fun and it makes you think about coloring more than just laying down color!
