Inspiration week at the Colour Crazy Challenge

Happy Friday every one!

This week it's my teams turn to post inspiration for the current challenge over at the Graph'it Marker blog.

This time we have been challenged to colour some sort of transparent image ... now this can be quite tricky even for the most seasoned colourist so don't worry we have an additional theme of "Summer Florals" so you can take your pick.

Don't forget you have the chance to win a selection of Graph'it Markers if you are the random winner!!!

So lets take a look at what I did ... go easy on me now ive been under the weather and its my first attempt at transparencies .. not that i'm making excuses at all lol

I used the stunning Dahlia Digi Stamp from Hanna Lynn, I misjudged the size when printing and ended up with a teeny tiny image less than 2"x3" to colour but managed it with my specs on lol.

Skin: 3120, 4155, 4150,4115, 4135 (blush)
Hair: 7165, 7160, 7150, 7140
Dragonfly: 6175, 6140, 6130, blender
White shake marker pen for veins in dragonfly wings

I used papers from an old Prima pad, its at least 3 years old .... shame on me for not opening it sooner.

I added flowers, leaves and pearl trim from WOC and lots of stickles to finish.

Hope you like it!

Have a great weekend!

Hugs xx Cara xx
