Good morning...err afternoon, where did those hours go??? O/H was away over the weekend, so in between walking and feeding Mathilda and visits from the granddaughters, I had a bit of a colouring fest! Here's one of the cards I made using 2 fantastic images from The East Wind. I've been looking forward to colouring the main image, which I was lucky enough to win in a previous challenge, for some time...I knew that amazing hair would take some time to do...I was right...but I like the way it turned out! I used a mix of copics and polychromos.
I printed her head-dress twice so that I could cut out the rose and add a scrap of tulle and a feather underneath it. I embossed the 'frame' with a swirly e.f. and added some aged silver frantage, some green seed beads and some glittery die cuts.
The second image is this months freebie, who could resist a gorgeous baby dragon? He's coloured with copics too with a touch of gold mica to his wings and spines (doesn't show in the photo but it's lovely and shimmery)

I really enjoyed creating this hope, you like it!
Thanks for visiting
have a good week.
