Make It Colourful - Colour Your Own Embellishments

This week we have a really FUN challenge for you over at Make It Colourful - and you can go as simple or as crazy as you like with it - we're asking you to colour your own embellishments!

I've used one of the new Steampunk images from Make It Crafty - this is Annabelle and you can find her HERE. I've also coloured up some lasercut chipboard (ribbon slider and gears) from Make It Crafty using my black, white and gold inkpads. I also coloured the throats of some white daffodils with Copic refill ink in one of the colours I used on my image (E31). I bought these flowers from Hooked On Craft.

If you're looking for more inspiration you can't go past checking out what my teamies have come up with at our blog - and don't forget to give it a go yourself!
