Colour Combo at Tickled Pink Stamps

Afternoon. :) How's your week spanning out so far?! It's almost the weeeekeeeend!! Can't wait. Me and the boyfriend are planning on going to the pictures to see The Woman in Black. We {heart} to scare ourselves silly. Heehe..

Anywho. You're here for the new TPS challenge
We've got a COLOUR CHALLENGE for you all this week.

Blue, Orange, Beige and Yellow

Here's what I came up with using Lil' Fashionette 60's Ivy big head.

I've coloured her using Copics for her skin and ProMarkers for the rest of her. I tried a different technique on her hair.. I tried to make it all smooth with no hair strands and stuff. I kinda like it on this image, but I'm not too sure how it would work with others. I can only try, right?

I used a few scraps of paper from My Minds Eye Breeze collection and a slice of polka dot paper from SU! That gorgeous orange ric rac is from The Ribbon Girl. You know something? When I received this as part of the rainbow kit I ordered - I was like?! Really?! When will I ever use that?! Truth is, I only have a tiny piece left. It adds so much to projects. :) Might stock up on the orange as well as a few other colours, heehee.

I typed a sentiment in Word and die cut it using a fancy tags die from Spellbinders. A few clusters of WOC flowers and TRG buttons threaded with some Doodlebug twine. I then added some cream? yellow? felt hearts for some added texture, and that was about it!! 

Thanks for stopping by today, be sure to check out the TPS challenge blog and see what the rest of the awesome teamies have got to inspire ya.
