Keeping busy

Hi all,

I've been a bit quiet lately but I've still been colouring. I've completed the two April classes over at Kit and Clowder. I really enjoyed doing the pencil class in particular, so much so that I did one picture with the alternative colour combo suggested and then decided to try the technique but with different images. I even tried with dry pastels, it worked well although a bit messy!!!

 This is Wendy's little friends from Disdigidesigns

This is Adam from Crafters companion's Angelica and Adam collection and the following two are Octavia Friendly hugs from Polkadoodles. These were coloured with my Spectrum Noir pencils

The marker class I found to be a bit tricker! I found the hair to be quite hard but hopefully soon I'll be able to start the skin and hair class and that should solve the problem. I'm now eagerly awaiting the arrival of the May classes!
This was coloured using my promarkers and is Polkadoodles' Octavia Moonfly.

I've also been entering a few challenges over at Sweetpea Stamps and Sassy studios, They are progressive challenges and are good at pushing boundaries as I've had to use images I wouldn't have picked myself.

These ones are being entered to the corresponding challenges.

This is my entry to the flowers challenges over at aurorawingschallenge.blogspot 
I know it is a little out of season but it does have flowers on it!!!
IT is coloured with SN pencils, the image is Christmas tree sprite

This is my entry to the May stamp of the month challenge at 
using Apple Blossom Birds coloured with promarkers.

And finally, my entry to theeastwindchallenge.blogspot
using Aurora 'Cabage Flowers and Derwent pencils

Take Care.
