Tiddly Inks DT call

Hello lovely people,

This is a very special post as I am sharing my entry for the DT call over at Tiddly Inks.  I was so excited to see this as I just adore all the Tiddly Inks images :-D

Now, there isn't long left to enter and wow, the standard of the entries so far is absolutely amazing! Undeterred, I grabbed myself this newly released image called Salty Kisses and put on my best colouring hat...

Well I knew this was going to be a challenge for me to colour because of all the hair and the mermaids tail to contend with but I like a challenge!  And to be honest, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out :-)

Once she was all coloured up I really didn't want to detract too much from her so kept the layout pretty simple with a sprinkling of Frantage and a button that my sister-in-law made.

Card recipe;
DP: Maja Designs Vintage Spring Basics
Lace: from The Ribbon Girl

Copic colours;
Skin: E0000/000/00/51 & R30
Hair: E23/57/59
Tail: B0000/000/00 & BV0000/000/00/01
Rock: W1/3/4/5
Crabs: R05/08
Starfish: Y21/23/26
Flowers: YR24/27 & E99
Sea: B0000/000/00 & blender

Wow, that was my longest list of Copics to date and I did have a lot of fun colouring this image...while my in-laws were visiting at the weekend... I just couldn't stop myself!

Thanks so much for visiting and I hope you enjoyed my creation,

Kat xx

WOW!!! This is stunning Kat. Such a pretty image and your colouring is wonderful. I especially love her tail. I love the delicately coloured papers too which work so well as not to distract from the image.
Good luck with the DT call, you would be such a great asset to the team.
hugs Sue xx
