Tiddly Inks Challenge - Summer Fun!!

What excellent timing and how perfect is this challenge??!! If you read my blog regularly you will know that at the moment I am not at home and am currently sunbathing, swimming or doing something incredibly fun in Vanuatu which is located just south of Fiji and approximately an 2 1/2 hour flight from Australia.... So while my friends in the Land Down Under are freezing and still in the middle if winter I can really appreciate and get into the right frame of mind for this Summer Fun Challenge!!!

For this card I decided to colour the gorgeous "Summer Sweet Wyrn". I printed her out on white card stock and then coloured Wryn in with my Prismacolor pencils all except for her dress which I paper pieced. I then cut her out and and using the very summery Echo Park's "Hello Summer" 6x6 paper pad, some very red ribbon and this fantastic Martha Stewart border punch came up with this card.

When you purchase Summer Sweet Wyrn she also comes with two sentiments and a lollipop so you have plenty of options when you want to colour her!

If you would like to join us for this two week challenge you can get the full details at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog and if you like "Summer Sweet Wryn" you can find this gorgeous image HERE at the Tiddly Inks Store.

For my sample card I decided to colour the beautiful image of "Flutterby Anna Belle". I printed her out on white card stock and then coloured her in with my Prismacolor pencils. Now don't laugh at my clouds it's the first time I have EVER attempted to do them... I didn't think they turned out too bad. I must admit I did have some fun doing them...
