Amazing Hair................................

Hi everyone!!! 

Well here I am with some mid-challenge inspiration for 'Amazing Hair' which you can join in with over at the main Challenge Blog.  For an amazing hair challenge, I had to use an image from Saturated Canary and I chose to use 'Circus Trixie'.  I coloured her with Graph'Its (obviously) and she took ages. Literally ages, I was seeing double by the end of it!!! I hope you agree she was worth it. 

The list of colours used are:

Skin:  4120, 4125, 4150, 4155, 3210, 4145/4135/4175
Hair:  6130, 6140, 6160, 6180
Dress:  6130, 6140, 5120, 5210, 5220
Gloves, Shoes & hoop: 5110, 5120, 5210

I made a 7x7 card with a mat cardstock from Hunkydory. The backing papers are from Lili of the Valley 'Promises' Nitwit Collection and Wild Rose Studio 'Bella'. 

I cut the image out with Tattered Lace die, I have completely forgotten what it is called. I used Pan Pastel 'Magenta' to tone down the white. I used the hearts from the banner die to embellish around about her.

I added a few dies from Joanna Sheen and Tattered Lace for extra embellishments, with some paper flowers and bling to finish.

Don't forget to pop over to the main challenge blog to see inspiration from the rest of the design team.  

Thanks for popping past and I will see you soon!
