Make it Colourful Final Challenge - OUT OF FOCUS!

Good evening,

I'm here tonight with my last Make it Colourful Inspiration Challenge Post :( as you may or may not have read on the challenge blog Zoe has decided to stop the challenges and wanted the last one to be a beauty so she hit us with the 'Out of Focus' Challenge phew, way to go out lol.

So here is my interpretation of the challenge using 'Hummingbird' and 'Blossoming Branch'



To achieve to out of focus look I did a couple of things, firstly I inserted the Blossoming Branch digi into a word document 5 times, rotating and repositioning then grouping 4 of them together, going into artistic effects then artistic effects options, format picture then adjusted the sharpness to 70%, then inserted the 'Hummingbird' and printed. I coloured the 'blurry' branches very lightly and did the background pale blue B000 then removed some of the ink with the colourless marker to add to the effect.

Colored with Copic Markers and Polychromos Pencils - Blossoming Branches - E70, 71, 74, V0000, 00, 01, 04. Hummingbird - Beak - W2, 4, 6, 8. Feathers - BV20, 23, 25, 00. B24, 28, BG11, 13, 15. C1, 2. Violet 138, Sky Blue 146, Phthalo Blue 110, Cobalt Green 156 and Clear Wink of Stella.

Really hoping this inspires you to enter the final Make it Colourful Challenge.

Bye for now
