Make It Colourful - Challenge #3 - Vintage Photo

Welcome to Make it Colourful's 3rd challenge of the year! Thank you to everyone for make it so successful each week. Looks like we're not the only Colouring Addicts in the world! There is just something soothing about sitting down to color an image - for me to put on a card - and I just love it. I love the friends I'm making on our DT across the globe.

So for our challenge this week - we're calling it vintage photo - so black & white or sepia tones is what we're looking for. This is such an AWESOME effect on images and I love it. I love vintage and seeing as how I just completed my E collection of Copics I knew I wanted to try out sepia on my image. As soon as Zoe showed us Geeky Love I knew I was going to snatch it up and I did! I think they are so cute!

Rather than list the copics I used to color my image this week, I took a pic with what ended up on my desk at the end. hehee Much easier for me! I hope you don't mind. I can tell you that I used the E's for their skin and hair and used the W's for most of the clothes.
