I'm being just a wee bit krafty!

Well hello there, how are you this fine September morning?

Ready for another Tiddly Inks Challenge I hope!!

This time we have a theme that I loved working on - Kraft (card)
and of course I used my coloured pencils......woo hoo!!

#167 Lets get krafty!
Wryn - Howdy Cowgirl by Tiddly Inks

Card and Designer paper from stash
Pencils - Caran D'Ache Luminance and Pablos
Winsor and Newton Professional Fixative

As a Brit I am not too familiar with Cowboy hats - yes I've seen them in the movies and on TV but hey I'm an English farmers wife, I'm more used to beanies and baseball caps!!

So I googled for images to ensure I got the shadows right.
 It was that brim that caused me issues and seeing real hats and how the light hits the bend of the brim really helped when colouring Cowgirl Wryn.

Well, this is where I pass the challenge on to you......yes you....the person reading this blog - come on have a go - you can either do as I have and colour your Tiddly Ink image directly on to kraft or ...........click on this link HERE to see some amazing creations from my teamies and how they interpreted the challenge!

Thanks for dropping by

Don't be square

Todays challenge over at Tiddly Inks is to create a card that's not square!

Pretty easy eh!

Here is my sample:
Yet another no lines creation!
(for those new to this, it simply means the image has been printed in pale grey (no black lines) so when colour is added the lines ny on disappear, enabling you to achieve a much softer looking image)

Skater Wryn - Tiddly Inks

Background - N0, N1, BG0000, BG000, B0000, R0000, R000
Hair - E11, E13, E17, E18
Skin - YG41, YG45, E0000, E000, E00, E41, V20, R20, W8
Boots - W00, W0, W1, W2, W4, C1, C2, B0000
Coat/Hat - R20, R21, R22, R24, R27, R39, W00, W0, W1, W2, W3, W5, B0000, B000, E11
