The challenge at Make It Colourful is colouring BLACK HAIR this week - using whatever medium and image you want.
We might be a wee bit puzzled if you start scribbling black wigs onto mushrooms and houses and whatnot but we solemnly promise to be totally non-judgemental!
Anyways, I went with Copics this week - I know, I'm boring. BUT, to cheer you up, here's Cordelia, a sign of Things To Come at Make It Crafty.
I applied acrylic paint, microbeads and glitter in 3 different colours to EVERYTHING, including the image...
And those beautiful filigree circles and flower centers and corners - all cool laser cut chipboard which I just lightly sponged with metallic acrylic paint. It warms my heart to see that stuff now more readily available in UK and Europe as well, hurry before Elaine runs out of stock! Soon you won't see a card of mine without them ....sooo effective and versatile.
And I'm easily obsessed, lol
Hair: C9/8/7/5/4, B99/39/14
The rest: B14/02/00/0000, BG97/93, G24
The sentiment I threw together myself in Gimp, it's a rush-job and not artsy or anything and Gimp is doing my head in cause I'm used to Photoshop but if you like it, help yourself (just click to enlarge before you save):
