Hiya everyone and a Happy Friday to you all.
It's that time again folks! A fresh challenge is up and running at Artbymiran - can you believe we are already on Challenge #7? Wow!! How time flies!
As always, it's an ANYTHING GOES challenge! All we ask is that you use a hand coloured image on your creation - a low down of the rules can be found here.
Today I'm sharing with you Little Garden Sally. This little lady was part of a set which Mi Ran kindly offered as a freebie last week as a Member Celebration on our Facebook Group. I hope you didn't miss out as she's truly a little beauty to colour up.
I made this card for my adorable little Granddaughter, Lola, who was 5 years old yesterday! Bless her little heart - she opened it, had an intake of breath and said 'Oh Nanny! It's soooo beautiful' Awww, how super sweet is that? Heehee!
I did something a little different this time and used Prismacolor Pencils on the majority of my image - apart from her face!! How scary was this? I'm a Copic girl at heart, but have desperately wanted to try another medium for a while now. Bought my new pencils a little while back and kept getting them out of the box, having a little scribble, then putting them back again! LOL. It's not the greatest pencil colouring, but not too bad for a 1st attempt hopefully? ;)
I used Shabby Chic papers from Lili of the Valley and the gorgeous array of flowers and pearl flowers are all from Wild Orchid Crafts. The butterflies at her side are little wooden ones, which I coloured up and glittered. The gorgeous pink butterfly and small clear domes are from my stash from donkeys' years ago - I had a little de-clutter of my craft room the other week and found them again LOL.
A little close up for you - as you can probably tell, more practice is needed with my pencils but at least I managed to actually colour a whole image this time with them instead of just scribbling heehee!
I hope you'll join us again for the challenge and check out my lovely DTeamies' creations too whilst you're there. If you haven't already done so, head on over to our FB page to join in with some fab competitions we have going on there too!
