CC263 - Surprise! I love a great Priate Story!
Today's colour challenge on splitcoast is creamy dusty pinks! And Betty Wright graciously asked me to supply a sample for her. Am I over the moon tickled or what?!!!!
I got it done between going to the lab for more blood tests, grabbing a couple of groceries, sick kiddo again, laundry (it never ends, does it?!), gifts and birthday cake, and piano lessons. It's really hard to bow out when it's your gifts and cake, KWIM?! *LOL* Since I ended up a little more pressed for time than I thought I would be, I went a little simpler on the embellies and put my time into colouring this cutie patootie pirate dude, officially called Sailing By by Chicken Girl Designs.
I coloured him with copic markers, but this time I used prismacolours for my shading and highlighting. I was talking to a darling friend of mine from Florida, and she mentioned Asela Hopkins work with copics and prismacolours. I figure if it involves colouring, I can do it (*snort*) and I had used them together in the past, so I decided today was a good day to reacquaint myself with the technique. Love it!
Yup, on the whole, it's a good day for a colour challenge!!! Enjoy yourself!
