Mission Impossible ( so it seems)

Good evening to all who visit. I hope the weather has been kinder to you than it has been to us here. All day we have had rain and winds and the forcast for the rest of the week is pants.

  I have been on a mission this week to improve my colouring skills cos when I visit blogs I am blown away by how fabulous the images look. You wouldn't believe how many ended up in the bin!   Well this one survived and surprise surprise, another Tilda. I saw her and couldn't resist her. she is absolutely lovely and could well be my favourite of all (ha ha, I say that all the time)  I found her quite a bit easier than some of the images because you could sort of tell where the shading should be. Got a long way to go yet but I think I've picked up some good tips from the tutorials that are out there. Think I'll have to check out some classes.

Hope you are all in good health.
I look forward to reading your comments, thanks so much for taking the time .
Hugs Sue.


Main Image is Tilda with ballet shoes, which I coloured with copics, promarkers and pencils.
Papers used were Dovecraft - Princess Fairytale, matted onto brown cardstock,  distressed with a Tim holtz distressing tool then inked around edges with tea dye distress ink and stitched.
