Getting Fancy with Critter Sketch Challenge and The Stamping Boutique

One of the great things about The Stamping Boutique is that Tracey loves to sponsor challenges, so as part of the DT I get to play along with any that take my fancy.  Today's card is for this week's challenge over at Critter Sketch Challenge; a challenge blog i'd not come across before, but looks like fun.  Their challenge this week is to create a card using a Fancy Fold; so I decided to make a Spring Card.

For my card I chose to use one of the newest additions to The Enchantment Line, a beautiful image called 'Thoughts'.  I picked out some gold cardstock and orange vellum from my stash, with the intention of doing a rather monochromatic card with shades of orange, gold and yellow.  I decided to start colouring the face with a nice orange and red combination, leaving lots of white paper to emphasise the light nature of the image.  I then started on the hair with a red pencil, followed by orange for the next strands of hair, I then came up with the idea of rainbow hair, and I love how it turned out.  I used Prismacolour Verithin Pencils for this project, which have a thinner, harder lead than the normal Prismacolour pencils.

To embellish my card I decided to add some pearls in the colours of the rainbow to compliment the rainbow hair.  I added some orange vellum behind my image, and to the base of the Spring Card, to which I also added a Tim Holtz Ticket along with a couple of 3D Butterfly stickers.

I love the image I used, and can't wait to try out some different colour combinations on it.  It really is a beautiful image to colour.

Thank you for visiting with me
Bye for now
