Alice and White Rabbit

Hi again!  I'm back with a second post today to share something really fun with you!  I have a Make it Crafty inspiration project that I hope you will enjoy.  It is inspiration for a couple of different things.  First, it is for the Make it Colourful Colouring Challenge #11. The easy part of the challenge is to color blonde hair and the hard challenge is to color folds and creases.  I decided to take on both.  In addition, this is inspiration for Zoe's fabulous new eBook called Techniques Behind My Creases and Folds.  This is a fantastic guide to understanding how to color folds and pleats and creases.  It's super easy to follow and comes with awesome examples and exercises.  If you haven't done so already, you will definitely want to get this incredible resource for yourself!

Anyway, on to my card:

My card base and mats are GKD Blue Denim and the patterned papers are from the Little Yellow Bicycle Feels Like Home 6x6 pad.  Too bad I covered up the layer with all the cute teacups!  The fun image is Alice and White Rabbit from Make it Crafty.  I printed it on MiC Blending Card and colored it with my Copics.  I gave her a dirty blonde hair color and I worked really hard on the folds and creases!  Believe me, there are a lot of them on this image!  Obviously, I still need a lot of practice, but I am studying Zoe's tutorial more and next time, hopefully they will look better.  I added a really playing card behind the image panel, as well as a few little cards I cut out with my Cameo.  A wooden clock embellishment, a striped ribbon bow and a tiny watch charm finished my card.

Here is a close-up of the colored image (please don't scrutinize those folds too much):

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Blonde Hair: E50, E53, E43, E57
Blues: B91, B93, B95, B97, B99
White: C0, C1, C3, C5
Reds: R22, R35, R37, R46, R59

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to check out the Make it Crafty Fan Page on Facebook for loads of inspiration and fun chat.  Oh, and have you seen the fabulous new photo galleries at the Make it Crafty store?  You should definitely enter all your MiC projects there!  It's super easy to do and who knows?  Your project may be one that Zoe picks to feature!
