Make it Colourful - Color Black Hair Challenge!

Wow! Thank you everyone for making our Carnival blog hop such a GREAT success!!! I have absolutely LOVED reading all of your comments and wish everyone luck in the prizes!

Now on to our regularly scheduled challenge, hehe! This we we are coloring black hair which is fun and so many different ways to do as you can see by all the coloring addicts this week! I have already seen a few techniques that I know I want to give a go. For my black hair, I kept it warm, using my W copics - just 2 W7 & W3. I would have liked it a bit darker but W7 is the darkest I have. Looks like more copics in the future! haha

We have a fantastic sponsor this week:

We were all generously given an image to play with this week as well. I just adore Momma Mae! I think she has the cutest baby bump ever! I also loved her sleek hair - perfect for how I watned to color this week. I also combined her with Make it Crafty Peach of Plenty rubber stamp. It was a bit of an after thought as it has been a crazy week and I initially made my card without one of our fabulous stamps! I kept thinking it was missing something the entire time I was making it! haha Duh, sheesh, seriously, Zoe is the best. She said I didn't have to make a whole new card with one of her images but that I wouldn't get a gold star & then I was happy to report that all was well when I added the stamp. I actually LOVE it even more now! I stamped it directly on the pattern paper and colored it with smooches and stickles. SO fun!

Awesome - love the results! It actually makes both image stand out in their own way - and the decorative paper you used is just to fitting! Reminds me of my cozy PJs - exactly what that Mama needs. ;D Love the layout and you did a fantastic job coloring her - she's glowing! :D *Hugs
