A challenge card

On Wednesday night when I was scrapping with Jane I was playing around with my pens and stamps. Once I had coloured in the hair and skin of my Sweet Pixies Birgitta I was not too sure just what colour to do the rest of her and Jane suggested purple. Now those that know me, know that doing purple is a real challenge but I so love how the colours in the Basic Grey papers came together with the copics I chose to use.

You make me smile card.


I'm not loving the way the spica on the wings looks though. Oh well I now know not to use it over anything that hasn't been coloured.


Here are the copic colours I have used.
Hair-E50,E51,E53
Skin-E000,E00,E01.R11
Dress and boots-BV0000,BV00,V91,V95
Flower-R11,R12,YG91,93,95

Once I had Birgitta coloured I pop on my computer to see if there were any challenges going that I could do the card for and the first one I checked out was Basic Grey challenges and guess what the challenge was. Wings. So I got to work on putting my card together using one of my growing collection of Nesties, a favorite greeting from one of my Rachelle Anne Miller sets and some punches.

If you get time why not play along as there is still a few days to go before the end of the challenge.

Thanks for popping in, any comments and happy creating.
