MFT Colour Challenge No 74

It's time for another Colour Challenge over at My Favorite Things!

I chose to use "You Have My Heart" - just look at that well behaved little pooch, maybe he could teach my Westie a thing or two.

The rules are pretty simple, just incorporate colours inspired by the ones listed below in your project.......

 and you could be the lucky winner of

I am still practicing for the October classes and as you can see I had a little fun adding pleats and patterns to the girl's dress.  Have you spotted the other change.......no not the eyes.......I swapped out the heart she is holding on the stamp for a bone.  Hence the dog's tongue is sticking out, he's drooling in anticipation of being given his treat!

With just a little imagination you too can personalise your images - the tiny flowers on her top are really simple to do.  I coloured the dress as normal, then used the colourless blender marker to add tiny little dots in the shape of little flowers........see I did say it was really easy!

For anyone who wants to colour along here are the Copic colours:

So why not have a go......I so look forward to seeing your wonderful creations

Anyone for a colouring challenge?

Hi there, I've been colouring another face......this girl is having so much fun right now!

Anyway, it's time for the 
My Favorite Things Weekly Sketch Challenge

I chose Super Boy to help me play along with this sketch.....

But I wanted to keep on experimenting with new techniques (well, new to me!) so I inked the sky and grass area with Tumbled Glass, Scattered Straw and Old Paper Distress ink.  Then I drew in the steps by hand and coloured them with Copic.

Superboy himself was stamped on Copic card with, shock horror MFT Licorice Black Hybrid ink....yes, I know - black!!  I then fussy cut him and mounted him on the finished card with foam tape.

Oops, nearly forgot, the top area was cut with Stitched Basic Edges 2 Die-namics after I'd inked it and then stamped with a sentiment from Essential Sentiments set.  Finally I mounted it on foam and adhered it to the card....ta da!

As always, if you'd like to play along.......or just practice for the class in October, then here is the Copic list:

Thanks for dropping by and if you've never tried the challenge before, I highly recommend you give it a go........I had such fun with this one.
