TTPH dt project - Queen

Happy New Year (as this is my first post of 2016) !

Bad start to the year as I was late posting this to the group - naughty step for me ;(

The theme was anything goes and  I chose to use Queen from Sweet Escape.

I printed her a bit bigger than normal for a change and to let me get some colouring practise.

I am still using my polychromo pencils (might have another play with the Promarkers later in the year)


Skin - Lyra light flesh, medium flesh
Hair - Derwent ochre, pale brown,  Lyra gold ochre 
Dress - Derwent pink, Lyra pink madder lake, rose madder lake
Crown - Gold pencil

Having a slightly larger image enabled me to get some colour down and do some blending (doesnt show well in the photo)
I am still struggling with the hair.. but will keep practicing.

I have limited access to my craft room since Christmas as a lot of stuff has been 'dumped' in there!
Currently trying to sort sons bedroom (while he is away) then I can decant 'stuff' and today craft room (bomb site!)  

It makes for even more of a challenge!
But I found the pink heart background paper and some cutting dies and background papers (luckily).
So I went for an A5 gate fold card.

I treated myself to a Wink of Stella clear sparkle pen before Christmas and just highlighted the gems in her crown.

I enjoyed colouring her. My biggest challenge was putting the cards together!
I hope you get inspiration from this project and pop over to Through the Purple Haze blog challenge and share your projects.

kind Regards
