Color Challenge!

I hadn’t done one of these in a while so when the idea came up I had to go with it! The challenge at Some Odd Girl is a color challenge and I bet you can guess what colors are up eh? XD No subtlety here! I used Coy Kaylee with a big head edition, a term I learned from Amy where you just use the image large and in charge! Usually just a portrait or head shot. Its kind of a different way to rock the CAS look with a statement.

Coloring something this big really let’s you stretch your coloring legs and have at it! I think this coloring of Kaylee might have inspired the new blue streak I’m rockin in my own do right now! It was nigh irresistible!  I used papers from Sassafras, ink is Distress Ink (for the sentiment) and Coy Kaylee is colored with copics… lots of copics and patience :3

HUGS and see you all when I get back!
