I just had to buy this new Tiddly Inks digi and she was so much fun to colour especially her hair. I did have a dilemma though with her hat. Do you ever have an image where you look at something and think what does this piece belong to? I felt the hat looked right the way I coloured it but when I looked at the way some of the DT coloured it they had coloured the brim as her hair so the the hat was perched right in her hair ie just the ribbon and top coloured as the hat. What do you think?
Image - Tiddly Inks
Medium - Copics, white gel pen for added spots on her jacket
Papers - Bo Bunny Secret Garden
Sentiment - LOTV
Web ribbon - Bunny Zoe
Other - Wooden butterflies coloured with a Copic and Wink of Stella pen for sparkle

Love the way you coloured this Marianne! Perhaps the DT were trying something different? But you've definitely got it right 😀 Love what you've done with this sweet image. Gorgeous colour combo and love the sweet wood chip butterflies. Hugs, Wends xoxo

Lovely card, fab colouring. The hat perfect as it is, but I can see that the image could also be coloured with a brimless hat. xx

Some line images are a bit tricky to see where one piece starts and ends but I think the hat looks better with a brim so yours look fab. Lovely papers too.

Christine Dol said...

A pretty card Marianne, lovely colours - her hat looks perfect to me.

Carol S. said...

She's adorable and a gorgeous design. I can see why it was debatable hair or hat part. I think you have it right. It would look odd as hair I think, more like a donut perched on her head! Hugs, Carol S.xx

Debra K. said...

I've had a look and I see what you mean. I like it either way so you've got a versatile stamp with two hat styles :). Your colouring is just gorgeous. A really wonderful card Marianne! Debra x

This is such a cute image and the hat looks great the way you did it; I can see how the DT have done it but I like the brim you gave it doesn't fall off her head - lol!
And a fabulous card for her; the shabby chic style and pretty floral paper are gorgeous :-)
Big hugs, Kat xx
