I haven't been crafting much lately due to other things taking priority but today after pulling a muscle in my leg I decided to take it easy and use the time to do a bit of colouring.  Having seen this new image from Mo Manning called LIL Ballerina I felt really inspired and remembered the other image from Mo that was on my wishlist (Fifi) and thought the two would work well together.

With no pressure and all the time in the world - felt more comfortable with the colouring on this image.

Started this post Friday when coloured image - now Sunday and I am itching to make a card with this image thinking of spending some time making some flowers first - we'll see!  

Did you spot the handmade flowers!  Plenty left over for another time!

Unfortunately, the glitter pen does not show up on this photo be it has been used as a highlighter on the tutu's.
