Wow, what an amazing response we had to our first challenge after re-launch. It was so good to see so many of you wanting come back and play ! We were all so excited on the DT to be back and seeing both our and your creations. Having the blog back up and running was like climbing back into your own bed after being away on holiday - so good to be back !!

This week, we have a colour combo for you

Ooooh such yummy colours !

The DP's are BasicGrey "Sugared".

The image is of course Anya and she has been coloured with ProMarkers and the edges inked with tattered rose and brushed corduroy distress inks.

Colours : Skin - ivory, blush and E01 Copic. Hair - mustard, sandstone and cinnamon. Clothes - cinnamon and blossom.

The flowers are hand cut and the centres are Craftwork Cards chocolate drops.

The ribbon is from Crafty Feeling.

The sentiment is by Hero Arts.

The pearls are from my stash.

You must pop over and have a look at the rest of the DT's creations, they are amazing and such an inspiration.
