Spot Coloring with Kathy

January 3, 2012

Kathy Racoosin did a beautiful job employing a ‘spot coloring’ technique on a pair of stamped cards;

Kathy colored the skin tones and hair of her focal image, leaving all other elements in black and white;

Here’s a close-up of the coloring and layering;

SUPPLIES: “Kisses” and “Love Assortment“.

    The whole concept of Spot Colouring thrills me & I particularly like the concept of using black & white as a foil for vibrant colouring – it really does focus the eye & I love the layering of her skirt plus Kathy’s trademark embellishing of it.
