Trying out some new colour combos

Happy Saturday everyone....where ever you are today I hope you get to indulge in a least a little amount of crafting :-)

Today I have my new piece I have coloured however due to grumpy children I have not got to make her into a card yet. 

I thought I would share with you at least my colouring of Pipi as I have tried some new colours and done some smooth gradient colouring which will hopefully help prompt you about the current colour challenge over on the Make it Crafty FB Fan page. 

Talking about Make it Crafty have you read about the latest DT Call over at Make it Crafty? If not pop here to find out the details?

I have had pipi printed for ages waiting to be coloured and today some ink found her!
The hair is a new Pink Combo I have tried out.....Not bad but still not what I am after. Back to the thinking board. 

I did the hair in smooth gradients as well. 
I also used the skin colouring (except the BV20 as I dont have that)  that was posted by Jen for the Colour of the Day post on FB. I dont know baout you but I have loved the colour of the day posts so quick and handy. 

Make it Crafty Product:
Copic Colours:
Hair - RV95, RV32, RV1p
Dress - BG87, BG75, BG72 & BG11
Skin - E53, E51 & E93

That is it from me today. 
I hope that even though I dont have a finished project to show you that I may have inspired you to try out a new colour combo or join Make it Crafty smooth gradients colour challenge.

Celebrating Make it Crafty

It’s time for the Make it Crafty to pour a round of drinks at the super special tea party celebrations!

Not only are we celebrating the magical release of Alice in Wonderland, but Make it Crafty has turned 3! All thanks to YOU, the incredible artists and the amazing Make it Crafty team!

Let’s dance around from chair to chair, sipping a drink, eating a cake, shrinking then growing with excitement as you watch the entertainment unfold before your eyes.

Be careful not to miss the hidden words as you’ll need to collect them along the way and string them all together to form a quote. Simply enter the quote at the end of the hop for a chance to win!

Hopefully you’ve found your way from Delphine    but if you’ve just skipped a chair or two you might want to start back at Zoe’s Blog.

Ohh how I just adore this release so much diversity with styles, there is really something for everyone. I was lucky enough to get to play with 2 of the new images Falling Alice and White Rabbit. 

Firstly I used the Rabbit and made this birthday card for my card....

I  was trying my hardest to fit a sentiment inn but I think because the card is so big it just got lost or looked out of place so once again a CAS card from me.

Secondly I played with falling Alice......

Isn't she adorable? I made a bookmark for my precious daughter and because it is a bookmark I had to keep it quite clean and not too bulky.I checked with her along the way to make sure it was going to be ok and apparently she just loves it!

The fun doesn’t stop here and if you head over to Elaine's  blog she’ll be sure to treat you with…

Now I know you will be wanting to buy some of these digis so to make it easier for you here is a direct link as to where you can get them.

until next time
