Spring Walks

Hello lovely peeps

Some exciting news today - I am appearing as a Guest Designer at All Dressed Up. Woo hoo!
I love working with Wendy's images, they are great to colour. The sketchy style is right up my street and the older girl stamps in particular are very elegant. Of course I love all of the cute images too :o)

All Dressed Up very kindly sent me Spring Walks to play with. I printed it at 60% size onto Hunkydory 'Colour Me' card and coloured it with Promarkers and Flexmarkers
Grass: Pear Green, Lime Zest, Aniseed
Jeans: Duck Egg, Cool Aqua
Top/Flowers: 2140, Amber, Saffron
Skin: Coral, Sunkissed Pink, Blush
Hair: Cocoa, Cinnamon, Tan
Dogs: as per hair, plus Putty, Almond 

I went around the edge of my card with my stab and stitch tool then joined up the dots with the fine end of a Tan Spectrum Aqua marker

The background paper is by BoBunny and the flowers were cut using Sheena's Honesty Die in white card and coloured with Promarkers.  The sentiment is from the Fancy Sayings stamp set from Clearly Besotted, stamped in Espresso Adirondack Ink.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Passion For Promarkers Challenge #399 add a sentiment
Little Red Wagon #398 Dogs or Cats
Sheepski Designs #3 Girlz Rule
