It's back to business after a nice holiday break. This is our first challenge of the year at the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge. I get to be the hostess for this one and I've chosen 'Swirls and Pearls' as our challenge theme. This challenge is being sponsored by a new sponsor, Aurora Wings. To get complete details on the challenge, the prize being offered and how you can join in the fun, visit the Fussy and Fancy Friday Challenge blog. Don't forget to check out the fabulous cards that my DT teammates have created to inspire you to play along with us.
Here's my DT card for the challenge...
I did so enjoy colouring this beautiful image I am featuring. It is of course designed by Mitzi Sato-Wiuff from Aurora Wings...
and it is called Big Eye Poppy Elf - Himalayan Blue.
You can check out the rest of Mitzi wonderful images at her Aurora Wings Etsy Shop or her Aurora Wings Digital Stamp Shop.
I've done most of the colouring with markers (colours listed below), but I've used several coloured pencils on this image as well (sorry but I didn't jot down the exact shades--there were a couple of blues, one green, black...).
