DT Project - The Sisters of Craft Blog Challenge - May 2015

Can you believe it's 1st May already!  You know what that means it's time for a new challenge at The Sisters of Craft Blog.  We are always overwhelmed by the response and the entries, I continue to be inspired by so many of your projects, thank you for joining us each month.

This month we are sponsored by Art by Miran and the winner will receive 3 digi images!  We had some beautiful images to work with, my image is called Flapper 1920's girl.
This is the first time I have coloured a complete image (apart from the skin) using Spectrum Noir Pencils.  I used the following colours; Dress; 024, 027, 025, 023, Shoes; 118, 024, Hair Band; 115, 118, Fur; 002, Jewel; 017, Eyes; 100, 102, Hair; 098, 100, 102  GI markers; Skin; 4120, 4125, 4150, 4155, 4170, 4135.  I'm quite pleased with how it turned out but I think I need some blending solution.  I realise that me listing the colours I used may be pretty boring for my readers but it's more of a record for me so I know what I used just in case I want to recreate it! :-)
The papers are from my stash.  The clock, resin flower and wooden birdcage (coloured gold with Graph It gold shaker marker) are from The Works, lots of packets of goodies in there for a £1.00 each!  The beads and ribbon used to make a hand-tied bow are from my stash.  I affixed Vogue card candi in the corners.  I used coordinating papers cut with the Xcut four petal nesting die and brad to make a flower.
I hope you like my project, and I look forward to seeing your entries for May, remember it's always anything goes.  Your entry will always be commented on by one of my sisters or myself but I personally always take a peek at every single entry as I love to see your work.  Don't forget to leave some love on my sisters' blogs all the links are here.
