Our lovely generous sponsor is giving us a great prize for our Random Winner:

Nikky...I've used the Dogwood image - it's so nice to colour up florals now and then, it's totally different to colouring up characters and almost anything goes really.  Dogwood is mainly white I think so it was all about getting shading and keeping it simple with this so I spent quite a bit of time trying to get a decent background....
Jane – Hi everyone!  This sweet image is called MUMS IN BASKET! Apparently these flowers come in all sorts of colours so, taking inspiration from my ribbon and the lush blues in my Lyra 72 set, it HAD to be....well blue!! :)


Colours used:
Blues: 58, 55, 54
            Browns: 76, 80, 82 & 75
           Greens: 67, 68

Scatty Jan This week I got to colour this beautiful Magnolia branch.You can find the image in the store right here. I love Magnolia. I printed it up 3 times and fussy cut it and layered it up to get some depth adding some sparkly glitter to the last layer.


Colours used
Greens 61
Pinks 93 & 28

We will announce the winners of our Week 13 challenge next time as the challenge is still open until lunchtime today so you still have a chance to enter if you missed it last time.
See you next time!

Prize for this challenge:
A $12 voucher to the store at A Day for Daisies to our winner for this challenge which will be chosen by Random.org


Nikky...As soon as I saw this lovely image I knew exactly what I wanted to do with her...You can't really see it on the photo but I decoupaged her skirt up so she actually has TWO skirts, one coloured on top of the other one which gives lots of dimension to the card and it actually stands out a good 1cm from the card I really made it fluff out like a ballerina...





Jane – Hi everyone! There is definitely more than one pearl on my project this week and this exquisite image is called MAGICAL DAISY DANCER.  I thought she would be perfect for a card I needed to comfort a friend. A simple CAS design really suits her don’t you think!

            Hair: 99, 98, 97
            Dress: 98, 36, 38, 39

Scatty Jan....Wow such a lovely image to colour up this week - Little Dance Two from our great sponsor you can find her in the store right here . For my more than one I doubled up the image and attached top one with foam pads, I also used two flowers and lots of liquid pearls (34 tiny pearls).  Those lush papers and flowers are from The Winston Collection, a perfect match for many cards and projects.

The colours I used are
Skin 76, 21, 31, 30
Hair 299, 199, 97, 95
Yellows 08, 06, 05, 02
