A Little Colouring for Myself

Last weekend I had a fabulous crafty weekend away with a friend and I spent some time colouring images that I have been buying but don't usually have time to colour. I love trying out new images and I think doing something fresh and different can also help with your creative mojo. 

This gorgeous image is a digi by Ching-Chou Kuik called Meet Dragonfly. I have so many of these images both in rubber and in digi that it's nice to see them get some colour. I did colour up another one of these beauties - she'll be popping up on a card soon.

For this one I coloured up the background with different tones before dropping some alcohol on to blend the colours together. This has to be done before the image is coloured because the alcohol doesn't recognize the boundaries and the ink can bleed into the image. The dragonfly's wings are finished off with clear wink of stella glitter - so subtle but beautiful and sadly hard to photograph.
