Sketch challenge at Crafts & Me

Its challenge time again at Crafts & Me and this fortnight Trish has drawn us a sketch to follow. For this one I chose one of the new awesome stamps by Hannah Lynn, I love her stamps they are so bold! This one is KRISTA and you can get her here at crafts and me. I love playing with colours on this kind of stamp so I had a rummage through my papers to see what appealed and a couple of sheets I'd printed off from the Designer extremes 3 cd spoke to me lol! They are in the raspberry section on the cd. I've coloured the image with promarkers using pale pink, hot pink, maroon and burgundy (and my trusty blender!) I've added bling with a sakura stardust pen and sprayed the image with iridescent gold glimmer mist which is actually showing up on the picture for a change! I've also added glaze to the eyes and lips.
Cute little sentiment stamps are by Stampin all day - won a £10 voucher a couple of weeks ago from there so went shopping the other day :D
Image is edged with worn lipstick distress ink.

I'd also like to enter this into..

Hi Vix,
this is just gorgeous...I adore the colour scheme you have gone for, really suit's your coloured image beautifully, your colouring is gorgeous...

I have received my order today from craft's and me...I am in love with the Molly Harrison collection, only managed to get HIDING as all the rest were out of stock, will get an email as soon as they are back in...I can't wait.

I used one of the lovely images you sent me for this weeks up and coming challenge, hope you like...she was a dream to colour and the card seemed to come together beautifully...I am usually scared of using this type of image but I have to say it must all be in my head as they come out lovely...it's all my own fobia I think...

Keep up the fabulous work...bet you have your hands full this time of year with the school hol's

Take care
