Big Hair!

Hi everyone.  It’s that time again when we run another new challenge over at Color Me Creative.  This time we are talking about big hair!  Hair can be really tricky but I've learnt that if you take it step by step it's a whole lot easier than trying to take big sections at a time.

We are being sponsored by Crafts & Me and were all sent various images.  My image is called Deevonne.  Isn’t she beautiful! 

This is my favourite hair colour combo (see colours below) She was really fun to colour, although she took me forever!  I ended up going onto a hair video in Suzanne’s Copic Class 5.  Suzanne makes it look sooo easy, but because she explains it in such a simple way you leave the video feeling confident you can do it, or at least try anyway!  In that particular video she tells you to dance if you start feeling frustrated when you’re colouring and it’s not going right… now that’s what I call a great idea!

I was inspired with the following sketch over at Skipping Stones Design and I’m also entering this into the following challenges…
Crafty Chicks – By the Sea
Delightful Challenges – Anything Goes
Paper Play – Use a Die

I used Basic Grey Indie Bloom papers, Want 2 Scrap bling border, PTI Script Sentiments and the die is the Nesties rectangle.

For more information on our prize and to see what the rest of our fabulous DT have created using these divine images pop on over to our main CMC blog.  You won’t be disappointed!  Don’t forget you’re not limited to Copics, check out what else you can use to play along with our challenges.

I’m back tomorrow with a project for Paper Issues and some news.

Back soon.
