Make It Colourful - Re-Colour an Image

We have something a little different for you with our new challenge at Make It Colourful - it's a journey about self discovery! Our challenge this week is to re-colour an image that you coloured previously.  Zoe reminds us every day that we can only compare ourselves to ourselves.  If you’ve been following along with the challenges this year, you’ve had the opportunity to really stretch your colouring muscles.  Now, you can go back and look at where you were before and see where you are now.  You can check out the DT’s challenge projects in the GALLERY.   

I chose to re-colour an image I used on THIS card last year - I've really learnt a lot about deepening shadows, "Zoe pleats" and creating scenes over the past few months - and it's fun to see how it comes through when I compare. I haven't had a chance to pop this scene onto a card yet - but our challenges are about colouring so you don't HAVE to enter a card! I'll be sure to post my card when it's done though - have been running a tad behind this week!

I decided to add some of Make It Crafty's background stamps to create more of a scene - I've used the Ivy Swing (just the branch) and Cobblestone Path. This photo shows the Wedding Bling I added - soo hard to photograph so the quality of the picture isn't great - but I do love me some bling and wanted to show it off! It's fairly subtle on the bridal gown and veil which is just what I was hoping for!
Due to the Christmas holidays, we’ll have extra long for this challenge.  You have until January 11th to get your entries in!

Just having a long overdue browse through your lovely blog, Deb. Your cards continue to blow me away...especially as I now know the tiny area in which you create them! When is your hubby going to build you a whole new Creative Wing! xx
