JAI#72...Just Add Colouring

Another Friday morning, another Just Add Ink challenge!

This week we're adding Colouring! Certainly not a strength of mine, much as I wish I was really good at it. I love to sit and colour, but tend to come up short each time I attempt it. I have Copics and Prismas, Aqua brush and Markers ... so it's not for lack of great tools.

Anyway enough blurb, here's my card.

Love this image. I paper pieced her umbrella and coloured her with Prisma Pencils. I added a little Clear Spica pen over her boots for some shine. I would have loved to make a puddle at her feet but didn't want to mess it up - mental note to do that first next time.

You'll notice this type of card isn't my usual style, I've layered up a lot more than usual - perhaps to detract from my colouring lol. The Pumpkin Pie layer is Presto Paper sponged with ink. I'd forgotten all about the Presto Papers until BFF used some in her card last week. I've also used the Play Date and Washington Apple (retired) dsp from Stampin' Up!

Go check out some other gorgeous Colouring samples from the super talented JAI design team and get Colouring yourself. Can't wait to see all your crafty goodness over the next week.

I hope to be back over the weekend to share a special RAK (Random Act of Kindness) I received about a week ago, and I have a craft project that isn't paper related. Meantime enjoy your weekend!
