Spots & Stripes at Crafty Cardmakers

Evening all!  There is a fab new challenge this fortnight over at Crafty Cardmakers set by Donna who has chosen Spots & Stripes yay!  There is a £10 prize from One Stop Card Crafts up for grabs too!

For this I used an image by SUREYA from her open colouring book on Deviant Art, this one is Keicea and coloured with promarkers using my normal skin tones (ivory, blush, coral, soft peach) hair was vanilla, cocoa and umber and dress I used buttercup, primrose, mustard, gold and amber I think with some caramel in the shadows to tone the amber down.
Papers are Bearly Mine digital and the sentiment I've had forever and I think was a freebie saved for best as you do lol!

Deep ocean challenge - flowers

Thought I'd also show this one I made for one of Ethan's friends.  Ethan chose the design and I coloured it!  Was from one of the disney free colouring pages somewhere.  I'm more used to colouring people so was a challenge for me!  For the coloured bits on mater I used denim and china blue with tea, mint and soft green, that seemed to be the closest match.  The rust-eze sign is back to front hey ho!  I also added glaze to parts of it to make them stand out more :)

More amazing work! The first card is fabulous, her hair so lifelike you almost want to run your fingers through it, and your creation for Ethan's friend is really cool. So much nicer than any other card he will have received I bet.
