She packed light!

Hey peeps, Happy Tuesday :o)

I noticed over at the Saturated Canary Challenge Blog that the latest challenge is a colour inspiration one and they are using my most favourite thing ever, a colour seeds chart :o)

If I see a challenge with a colour seed chart on it I have to take part.
I started by saving the pic to my compy and then I colour dropped the colours into my graphics package so that I could be sure that I was matching perfectly. I then tried to find appropriate pro markers.

I chose the "pack light" image to work with, don't you just love her she is Gorgeous with a capital "G."

All of the embellishments are digitally drawn by me to match the theme and the palette, I love creating things digitally, makes them unique which I love :o)

I adore how she turned out and she's definitely a girl after my own heart, just ask my OH :o)

I used the two grey shades for one of the suitcases and the deep red/brown for the other case. I love spicy shades so I had a great time with the oranges. I decoupaged some of the clothes and the handbag, I also used some glazes on the luggage label and bag. I struggled a bit to match my pens perfectly to the green/blue colour but I managed to incorporate it in the flourish down the left side.

Roll on the next design seed challenge. 

I've got to get back to my decorating now booo, it's almost as evil as housework really, but I've given myself a deadline for finishing it, so it's my own fault lol.

Oh and by the way over at =>this blog=< the amazingly generous Donna has a mega blog candy offer going on until 30th November.
Check it out!!!!!

Happy Crafting
