Creative colouring with Make it Crafty

Hello all!
        Finally got around to making a card for the latest challenge over at Make it Colourful which is all about 'creative colouring'.  You really should check out the amazing transformations from the crazy talented DT - they're so very inspiring and a teensy bit daunting if I'm honest.  Anyway, I decided to give it a go as I do like how these challenges really do challenge you!  I know there's a place for the Anything Goes challenges but I do like to push myself every now and then - it's good for you, so I'm told.

                              I decided to 'change' the freebie digi that was being offered on the Facebook MIC page and I had an idea that a touch of Steampunk would work.  I don't have the option of printing in greyscale on my (cheap) printer so I had to stick to the printed lines of the original digi but I added some of my own lines with a thin black marker and then set to colouring him with my Copics.

    I suppose it would make sense to show you the original digi so you can compare that with my creatively coloured version -  you can find him here.

             Entering this into the challenges at A Creative RomanceLeft of CenterWags n Whiskers613 Avenue Create and Glitter n Sparkle.

Thanks for stopping by!

Wow Dawn! You did a great job Steampunking that little Sprite. I especially love the metallic look, the rivets, and the irissing goggles.

Fun card!
