Friday Sketchers,Just Tilda and Cupcake Crafts challenges

As I was uploading these photo's I realised that I had forgotten to give Tilda some rosy cheeks and also I noticed a black speck on the background too ! It is 6 am and I have been up half the night with hay fever !! So I have a good excuse ! :-)

I followed the fabulous sketch on the Friday Sketchers Challenge I love this nice and simple one :-) I also followed the lovely colour scheme on the Just Magnolia Challenge,, Pink / Grey wth black being optional. It wasn't until after I coloured the image that I realised I had coloured her hair in reddish brown ,,, hope that's OK, I know I should have done it black ! :-(

I have just had my first play with my new copics air gun ,,, well Amy needed it for her art !!! Now we need more inks !!! I love the effect this gave and am hoping I will handle it better next time ,,, It was fun tho :-)

The image was coloured with copics and 3D'd. I paper pieced her dress and ribbon and addded clear copics glitter pen to the bird cage ,,, oh it does look lovely and sparkly in real life :-) The papers are all digi downloads from Funky Fairys Papercrafts
I used Fancy Flourish and Simply Brushed sets on this one :-)
The flowers are prima, the grey one was coloured by spraying with slate glimmer mist. The pearl brad and butterfly charm are from Papermania and the ribbon is from my messy draw. the sentiment is from the papermania Clare Curd sentiment set :-)

Ooh as luck would have it the Cupcake Craft Challenge have just published their new challenge and it fits in with their theme of 'Bugs' ! I have a lovely butterfly charm on there so I think it qualifies ! :-) I think I will be the first one in the challenge !! Have never been first for anything ha ha !! :-)
