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!
I have this fun card up over on Papermilldirect blog, sharing some inspiration for the latest challenge.
For this card I used the adorable Tropical Squidgie image from Stamping Bella. I am being encouraged by a friend to challenge myself to colour more this year so I am breaking out the pencils more and getting more colouring onto my projects. I am even entering a few progressive colouring challenges! For this card I used my Polychromos Pencils, using the following colours:
- Hair: Green Gold / Brown Ochre / Burnt Sienna
- Glasses: Earth Green Yellowish / May Green / Cobalt Grey IV
- Pineapple Girl: Van Dyck Brown / Sanguine / Cadmium Orange
- Coconut: Brown Ochre / Van Dyck Brown
- Skin: Burnt Sienna / Medium Flesh / Light Flesh
I made this a bright and fun card to fit in with the challenge, but also the image is just fun and calls out for bright and cheery!
Here is a bit of a close up of the colouring. I added glossy accents to the glasses to make them really stand out and look like some really fun shades!
Anyway thanks for stopping by today, have a great day!
I am stopping by to share a fun new challenge over at Bloobel Stamps. It is a progressive challenge that will be running for the year. It will involve a different image every month, and I am really hoping that by taking part it will encourage me to work on my colouring, and perhaps develop some passable skills in this area! This is my entry for the first challenge, using the challenge digi – I must protest. We had to add our own slogans to the placard. I think this was possibly harder than the colouring.
I am certainly looking forward to the next month and the challenges it will bring now though!
