An Attempt!

Morning all, well I wanted t try and blog all of these yesterday but time ran away and I got an early night in, althoug it didnt go to plan as the youngest was unwell again! Oh the joys of parenthood! 
Well this is the final card that I made yesterday, not sure on it my self but thought I would share it with you for your opinions! 

I love the image its from Tickled Pink Stamps, I have quite a collection of these now but never feel that i colour them right, i think its each to their own! I coloured her using my promarkers using;

Blossom, Lilac, Emerald green, Pastel Beige, Caramel, Raw Sienna, Cocoa, Amethyst and Aubergine. 

I know the flowery paper is an American Crafts sheet called P-Funk.


The flowers were just from my stash (my oh my do i have a stash now!) I decided to try and put pink in there too, but not sure if it works!

Below are a couple of closer pictures of the image, it has been pointed out to try and put shading in her eyes, I will try that one next time...


I also think I should have put more dark purple in the hat for the shadow...
The image was printed and then I die cut it using my spellbinders, I used one of my gelly roll pens around the edge for faux stitching and also made it darker by using a fine liner pen too!around

The one bit I was impressed with was the colouring on her dress, turned out just as I wanted it|!

I have decided that I will enter it into a challenge,

Tickled Pink Challenges - Anything Goes

Well i'm open to any advise on this one!
