Through the Purple Haze Coloured with Pencils Challenge

You have a lot to answer for Through the Purple Haze challenges!  I now have a new obsession thanks to this weeks theme, we want to see your creations using colouring pencils.  I must admit I have never tried it before but now I am addicted. We are sponsored by the fabulous Derwent.

There's something so satisfying about pencil colouring, don't get me wrong I love colouring with alcohol markers which blend beautifully, but there's something special about seeing all your own pencil strokes. I think it reminds me of being a wee girl with my dreams if being an "artist" when I grew up lol.

I decided to colour a Simply Betty digi called Abby Portrait I have had for a while but not used yet, here's my card

My backing paper is Prima, my sentiment is papermania,  my ribbon is from my stash and I finished off with some dots of pearly Cosmic Shimmer.

I don't go for half hearted for my first attempt I don't think I could have chosen brighter colours if Id tried.  I really enjoyed colouring her so hopefully I will improve with practice.

I can't wait to get inspired by all your pencil drawn and coloured projects so please take a look at the challenge blog here for all the details.

What total inspiration - I have this stamp!!! I have never used it before... I may have to case this card. I'll give you all the credit. Gorgeous coloring. I like seeing touches of red/orange in flowing hair.
