Kamsin & a New Blog Challenge

Finally had a little time (mainly due to internet problems ha ha) to get this little beauty coloured up.

I created Kamsin for the Crafting Circle Artists Challenge for March.  The idea was to create an image where people could practice their colouring skills on a portrait etc.  I created Kamsin with lots of movement in her hair.

The first time I coloured her I did her with Ombre and although I liked the look I decided to try my original colour choice which I was a bit nervous of doing.  No idea why if you do it wrong just print it again and have another go!

She's been coloured with Copics to a certain extent.  I've yet to learn how to get this full effect using them.  I've also used polychromos pencils to finish off with.  Her hair is of firey colours red and orange and her eyes a luminous green.  You could colour her in with ordinary glasses but I've chosen to do her with sunglasses as a chic with a bit of attitude :)

I showed Katrina my colouring at work today who says its me!  I want a card with that for my birthday :D

I used some Sizzix letters to cut the sentiment into the card.  Underneath this is some black card and then some orange design paper from Joy Craft.

Finally I did some doodling with a pen to add a bit more of a border.

Hope you love my creation
