This week's challenge is a theme challenge - MUSIC.  I have used this gorgeous digi stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil.

Had thought of colouring this image in sepia colours - but some reasons decided to colour the dress in Blue/Green tones forgetting my original idea.  Loved the deep red copic colours so that was my next colour choice.  The rest just happened.

Having coloured the image first I knew I had some spotted paper which I thought would work well, whilst looking through various papers I found this stripped pattern paper which I loved and thought brought about a colour freshness - adding a more summery feel.

The flower stems (swirls) I made with Flower soft and wire, then twisted around a pencil to create the spiral.

Inside view


Medium:  Copics, Prisma and Polychromo pencils, Black pen, White gel pen
Papers:   1st Edition - Summer Breeze, Black Card stock and Neenah cardstock for colouring image
Dies used:  Spellbinders small border die (to make frame), Cheery Lyn flourish die, Tim Holtz letter die
Embellishments:  Various flowers, heart pin, stems made from Flower soft wires and flower soft, Butterflies, brad

So glad you could take a look and why not check out the other Dt members for more inspiration.

Best wishes and good crafting,
