The Paper Shelter Design Team call

So, after much deliberation, I decided to throw my hat in the ring for The Paper Shelter DT call..... I guess I'll never know unless I try!!!  They wanted the focus to be on our colouring so I printed off about 6 TPS images and started colouring.  I, of course, wasn't happy with any of them, so I started all over again!  OY!  I guess we ARE our worst critics eh?

I decided to use this image called Magic Bubble Bath  - I THINK it shows my shading and colouring abilities well (at least I hope it does!)  I have coloured it with Copics and added 3D Glittering Crystal paint to the bubbles to give it that sparkly bubble feel - it looks so much better in person!!!! I wanted to keep a fairly simple layout too, so the girls at The Paper Shelter could see my colouring!  It is also a reflection of my style I guess.....simple and clean, a few embellies but not overloaded!!!

I'm also attaching a coloured image that I was quite happy with, but didn't get a chance to make into a card (the deadline is creeping up quickly!!!) - so thought I'd share it too for fun!  The "snow" is 3D paint. 

Thanks for popping by, have a GREAT day!!
