Doodle Dragon challenge entry.....Hip to be SQUARE!

This weeks challenge at the Doodle Dragon challenge blog is HIP TO BE SQUARE!  So, here is my square card for this challenge!  The goop on her bow is actually glitter glue that hasn't dried .... oops!!! This card is a 4x4 made with scraps I had on my table!  I LOVE it when I can use up scraps to make a great card! I think this little turtle is TOO cute!!!!
Thanks for stopping by!

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!!

I used a Tiddly Inks image I've had for a long time, called BELLE.  Isn't she pretty??
