despite a certain chill spring is in the air here and my garden is filled with the scent of hundreds of pink blossoms. My card for this week's Just Add Ink challenge was also made for a pretty little blossom - my niece - for her birthday! So what is the challenge - sketch, colour? nope ;) this week we want you to Just Add Colouring (you can use pencils, markers, crayons etc....). I always find that while colouring takes a while it is a really relaxing and fun thing to do :)
I rifled through my DSP stash to find something girly and fun (pink) and that helped determine my colours. Using copics matched to the SU! colours I coloured in my stamped fairy girl - twice. On one I paper pieced her dress (inside) and the other (front) I added a dotty pattern using copics. Then both girls were trimmed out. I used a paper dollie to frame her on the front (it also helps mute the DSP patterns a little) and had her stand on the sentiment. A bit of sparkle, shine and a big bow finish off the front.
I thought this cute little fairy was just perfect for the little cutie it was intended for!
Hope you can join us for some colouring this week! Don't forget to go see the rest of the gorgeous colouring ideas from the rest of the JAI team.
