Getting in the groove with some colouring ...

Been feeling a little under the weather recently and to distract myself from the rounds of self pity, decided to do a little bit of colouring with my Lyra Rembrandt Polycolor pencils and a Saturated Canary image ...

A simple and not over cluttered card from, (which I know is a rarity) and given to my niece for her birthday. Flowers simply made using heart punches with a paper flower centre.

Colours used:
Skin: Light Flesh, Medium Flesh and Light Carmine
Hair: Ochre, Burnt Ochre, Cinnamon and Raw Umber
Clothes: (TOP) Cream, Light Chrome and Canary Yellow 
                           (SKIRT) Pink Madder Lake, Moss Green and Zinc Yellow
Boots: Pink Madder Lake and white

Right I'm off to bore myself with some day time TV and just "chill" as determined to get fit so I can celebrate my significant birthday on Thursday .... and I'll be celebrating on my blog too, so please do pop back over to see what's happening.

Catch you all later,
