Here comes the bride

I may not be posting a whole lot yet, but I am certainly back into crafting, mostly colouring! The mojo is back and I have coloured in a few images this month. Here is one of them, and by the end I was surrounded by markers as I never put them back in place until I am done with the image!

Last month I entered in a challenge on Mi Ran’s facebook group and I was chosen to be a Guest Designer for the challenge starting today. What an honour! I love Mi Ran‘s images and it was the perfect excuse to colour up a new one. I chose Princess for my project. Be sure to pop over and enter in the challenge!

The hair is what I am most pleased with. I have no idea how I managed as I haven’t gotten that far into the Kit and Clowder lessons yet. Trying to work with the basic skills after just watching the first couple of videos, and I am well happy how it turned out. I can’t wait to actually get to the lesson that covers this and see how much I did ‘wrong’, haha! It was fun trying to challenge myself before actually doing the class for this type of hair though! I am surprised how pretty it looks, and I am well chuffed! You know a class is great is when you can do just a couple of lessons and then be able to apply the technique to stuff you haven’t gotten to yet!

Anyway, I have used papers from Lili of the Valley, flowers and pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts, dies from Memory Box and Noor Design (with a dab of distress ink). On the image itself I have used rhinestones for ear rings, liquid pearls in the hair and down her back, as well as frantage and glitter around the image.

The copics I used are: E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E44, E47, E49, E50, E53, E55, R20, R81, R83, R89, RV00, RV10, G82, G94, C1, C3, C5, C7, W0, W1, W2, W3, B000, B81, B83 and B85. Can you see how I was surrounded? haha.

Lastly I want to add that I have made myself a new watermark! I am quite pleased with how it turned out. Hopefully it will look just as good on darker cards!
