Check the Chickas!

Today sees the start of a new 'anything goes' challenge over at The Stamping Chef. 
I decided as it was October & it's breast awareness month I would use one of Tamara's fab breast awareness images for my card.

Also this is my first image coloured with Promarkers/Flexmarkers & my new Spectrum Noir pencils & I just love the end result. I know I need to practice (play) more but I do love her hair!


Even using just pencils, I've never been able to get my shading how I like it on hair. But after doing this image I think I'll be using markers & pencils from now on!

Craft Your Passion- where there's hope
Dragonfly Dreams- mainly pink
