Color Me Creative Challenge #87 - Anything Goes

Marker POP! is sponsoring the anything goes challenge for the next two weeks at Color Me Creative.  I used a Tiddly Inks image you can find at Marker POP! called, "Flutterby to Say Hi" as my mail focal point.  The sentiment is pieced together from a PTI Valentine set and a Sassy Cheryl set.

I concentrated on the hair (again).  I love experimenting with colors and tried a color combination that my blogging friend, Marilyn used for her ADU girl, YR24, 21, E37, 35.  It's fun to see how different our two girls look, just based on the amount of each color we apply.  I also used the image to guide my coloring of folds in the dress. The first time I colored this girl, the dress didn't have folds - next time, the back fold will be a bit smaller.  A great sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches pulled the whole card together!
