Kraftin Kimmie Challenge

This is week two of my efforts to gain the April GDT spot on the Kraftin Kimmie Design Team.  To play along check out this blogpost

The challenge this week was a recipe - 3 main colours, 2 designer papers, one ribbon, one button.  I decided to pick my papers first and take the colours from them.  I selected a lovely floral from the My Minds Eye Pretty Please pad and selected 3 matching copics to colour my image with.

I ordered a load of new stamps in Kimmie's Birthday sale last week, and unbelievably, they made it all the way from Canada and arrived this morning :-)   It was hard choosing which to colour first but I plumped for Nadine.  I flat coloured her dress in the copics, then overshaded with matching tones of pencils for added depth.

I used the teal colour to match the second paper, also from the same paper pad, and also for the ribbon and button.  I tied a double bow on the wonderful bow easy, and tied a polka dot button into its centre.  Some colour co-ordinated sizzix corners and a few gems tied it all together.

I've been practicing hair colouring this week - think I'm finally getting where to put the highlights!

The challenge post for this week can be found here  and the DT's have used the AMAZING new stamps from Annie - don't you just luuuurve that Grease theme???   I know what I'll be doing tomorrow...........
