Happy Birthday at Crafts & Me

Its a birthday theme over at Crafts & Me this week and turn of the dynamite digi team to host and for this I've used one of the brand new digis called Deevonne which of course is by Hannah Lynn and will be released on 1st July.

I was in a colourful mood making this as one of my orange lilies just flowered so I went with really bright colours of orange, yellow and pinks.  I also found a freebie from Bearly mine which was the colours I had in mind and went with a stars and stripes theme.

Image is coloured with promarkers and derwent coloursoft pencil.  I've also added a pic of her in progress further down so you can see how the end result turns out from the seemingly messy start!

I'd like to enter this into...

Ellephantastic - Sketch
Craft Room Challenge - Summer Birthdays
Crazy Challenge - Beautiful Women
Daisy Doodles -Stars & Stripes
Ooh la la - Summer flowers
Birthday Sundaes = Stars & Stripes
Crafty Pad - Bold & Bright
Dream Valley - Ribbon

In progress!  I started with some blush and coral on the skin and my lightest yellow (buttercup) orange (amber) and pink (baby pink)  I then blend the skin with ivory and repeat adding in more colours like soft peach and sandstone and add darker shades to the yellow, orange and pink and use the lightest to blend.

I'm off down to a bike rally for the weekend tommoz and OH has just gone down to pick my bike up then he'll be riding it back, going back down in car so he can pick his bike back up!  He's bought me a Suzuki GSX750F his mate was selling so I just need to pass my test now lol!  It'll give us time to do any work needed but here she is!  They're known as The Teapot, you can see it lol!  What shall I call her?
