May Blooms Colouring Challenge

Hi all,

I think I had shared before that I am taking part in the Simply B Progressive challenges, and it is a real challenge to my colouring! But I am enjoying the challenge, particularly as there is usually a colour challenge/theme with each image, so it really pushes me. This was my card for May, using the May Blooms image.  You can find more information on the progressive challenge on the Simply B Facebook Fan page. I am a bit behind on sharing these on my blog, but will hopefully catch up soon!

Peach and aqua!

The challenge over at Pocket Full of Posies was a colour combo of peach and aqua. I had only just gotten some peach paper so I think it was a sign that I was to give it a try!  The aqua paper was some I had left over (*cough, been hoarding*) from the Crafty Alley July kit. I dry embossed my peach paper. The flowers I made from die cuts Timi had sent me. She was also kind to send me the stamped image . I dont have markers so I coloured her with my colouring pencils. You cant really see it in the photo very well but I put glossy accents on the bow in her hair and on her eyes to give them a bit of a shine! Oh and I used the sketch over at Sketch and Stash for the layout. The ribbon, the gems in the centre of the flowers and the aqua paper was all in my stash. Oh I am also entering it over at Annabelle Stamps, the theme is embossing.
