Hi everyone!! Happy Valentines Day!! :D Today we have a brand new challenge over at Saturated Canary and the theme is Love! Just perfect for today :) Some of you might remember this image from my recent speed colouring video....well I decided to frame her! :) 


She was printed out quite big - 17x12cm. Sooo much fun to colour :) The frame is an altered frame from Ikea. I first painted it in Tim Holtz crackle paint tea dye, and then roughly painted it in Gesso and sanded is back. I then embellished with some yummy flowers from the lovely Bella Paperie shop in Brisbane and a few bits and pieces. This is what the frame started out like:

And here;s some more pics of how it ended up:

Here are the copic colours that I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, R11
Hair: E11, E13, E15, E18
Dress: BV000, BV00, BV02, RV11, BV18, BV08 (I added int he RV11 to make her dress have a pinkish glow from the light. You can't see it once it is blended out but it just picks up subtle reflections of the pink)
Background: YR000, R000, R00, B60, Y21, Y000, YR61


Hope you enjoy her and can't wait to see you playing along in the challenge! :) xx

Celebrate the Occasion - Valentines Anything Goes
Everybody Art Challenge - Metal (metal zip pull)
Ribbon Carousel - Love is in the Air (scalloped lace inside the frame)

  4. This is gorgeous. I only watched your speed colouring video last night and wow. I also bought Wryn this week and saw that you had a video colouring her. I followed your technique and am very impressed - though I have a long way to go to be nearly as talented as yourself. I will be posting the card on Monday.
    Your finished card is stunning.
