Funky Hair!

Hi there.  It’s time for another Color Me Creative challenge, this time it’s all about colouring hair with a different colour, multi coloured/non-traditional  I thought I’d go the red route!

CMC 1111-2
This girl is a fun digi image that we were given from Simply Betty, our sponsors for this challenge.  Thank you Simply Betty!! 
Her name is Miss Betty Burton. I just love these quirky designs, they’re fun and great to colour too.  I wanted to use my Halloween type image for a love card, Valentine’s or even Anniversary because I had this perfect Paper Smooches sentiment to go with the bat! 
You may not be able to tell from the picture but I’ve used a Spica pen to give her some sparkly eye-shadow.  Suzanne teaches a really great video in skin colouring so I’m finding my skin is a little smoother each time now rather than the overcooked foundation look that I used to get lol.  My card is a mini card, (5in x 3in) so I kept it all quite simple, using some pretty papers from Jenni Bowlin and just adding a piece of ribbon.

I’m entering this into the following challenges;

Crafty Boots – Anything goes
Make It Mondays – Anything goes
365 Cards – Keep it Simple
