Anastasia in biros

I've been very busy over the weekend colouring stamped images in mediums I'm not used to all because of the new challenge from Zoe at Make It Crafty.  This was one of the ones I was working on and it took me three hours to colour it!  The image is Anastasia.  The colouring I decided to do in Autumn colours and is done with biros I bought from W H Smith.

After colouring and submitting the image to the Make It Crafty gallery I decided she deserved to be made into a card.

I've softened the edges of the white card white a ProMarker before mounting her on black and orange card stock to make the image pop.

I've only used one design paper as I didn't want to detract too much from the actual colouring.  The paper used is from Lili of the Valley and Raspberry Road Designs - Father Knows Best. I've mounted this over the top of some orange card stock.

To complement the colouring I've added an orange organza ribbon, some red 
pearlised self adhesive gems, a metal scroll corner and some orange and red flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts.

Onto the next experiment/challenge
