A Card Challenge!!!

I just had to play with our new images to be released April 7 (tomorrow!) and so I figured I'd seek out a challenge and give it a go! It has been far too long since I got my hands (and my desk) full of glue and glitter! Although, come to think of it, I never did get to glittering... I have a sick little one today and so I tried to keep the mayhem to a minimum.

Well, the challenge... is the Colour Inspiration Challenge!

I didn't really know what I was going to do with this little guy and then I came across these colours and well, I figured why not give it a go, he was already coloured appropriately? Made me realize that I totally need some more paper though... lots of it! I really don't have enough to pick from. Since this is my first time entering the Colour Challenge, I hope that I did it right :)

Anyway, on to the card... This is B'Monkey from The Character Cafe, coloured with watercolour pencils, ribbon from my stash, Basic Grey paper cut with the Cricut, a little white ink and voila, simple, but cute (at least I think so). My picture taking, really needs some work as I see you can't tell there's "cloud"-like inking on the blue, but I promise to work on my photography skills! *adding it to my "list"*

I am also entering another challenge tomorrow, but I just didn't want to miss out on the time-line for the kwerner challenge (I've done that before!!!) and figured I'd better do it now, before time slipped away as it tends to do when kids are involved! Anyway, I coloured G'Monkey with copics as I was testing to see the difference and really, I'm definitely a copic girl, although I'm still learning how to use them effectively. I think at some point, I'll be re-doing Mr. B'Monkey in copics because the difference (in my opinion) is unbelieveable (although he steals my heart no matter what "colour" he's wearing!). Since I wanted to enter G'Monkey in a challenge, but couldn't find anything quite right I'm posting a pic of the card I made for her too... hope this doesn't break challenge rules!

Well, that's it for tonight! I'll be seeing you all again tomorrow :)
Until then, happy crafting :)
