Use a hand coloured image - MilkCoffee DT

Hi all,

First of all, Just thought I'd let you all know I've set up a FB page... It's still under construction, but I figured it was about time, as it's a lot easier to send people there than here if they're trying to commission something.
If anyone fancies stopping by, I'll be very happy to see you :-)

It's time for another challenge at MilkCoffee, and it's one that people either love or hate... We're simply asking you to use a hand coloured image on your project. So no pre-made toppers or pre-coloured digis please!

I decided to use another Tiffany image for mine. This time, she is dressed up as Alice, and judging by the fact that she has hold of the watch, I'd say she's already gone down the rabbit hole!

Apologies for the terrible lighting in the photo. It's been so dull and miserable here that try as I might, I couldn't get a decent colour to anything (even trying to fix it with software after... believe me when I say this is sooo much better than what it started off as, lol).

I figured that with the watch in her hand, this would be the perfect image for a belated birthday card, so I created the sentiment on my computer and printed it out. The papers are LOTV.
Believe it or not, but that gem in the bottom corner is supposed to be the same blue as the others!

Now it's your turn.  We'd love to see your colouring skills!

Have a fantastic day!

A gorgeous card Sammy and a fabbie image with perfect matching paper! I use an OTT lite both colouring and photographing a card... I have the little hobby one (which was around £35) - but am never stuck waiting for good light.... it's perfect for the job!

She's great Sammy and I know what you mean about the dismal light too. Christine is right though, an Ottlite is a worthwhile investment. xx
