DANCING



For this project I used decided to play around a bit more with the Black and White theme of colouring images.  Usually I use a mixture of Warm's and Cool grey's but for this one I decided to keep to just the 10 greys from the Warm section of Copics pens.


I was quite pleased with the result - so I guess you don't have to have every colour of pen on the market!

PHINDY'S PLACE CHALLENGE - THINGS WITH WINGS


This week's challenge is a joint theme THINGS WITH WINGS  as originally planned and sadly a THANK YOU  and Goodbye to the Phindy and her challenge for a while.



I have chosen one of my favourite images called Love Flutterby and coloured her using just the warm and cool greys.  I think this image just works so well whether you use the full spectrum of colour or use only the tones.
