Designed to Colour Challenge 1...Rolled flowers

I recently stumbled across Designed to colour's E magazine ...it's a mag dedicated to colouring techniques primarily but it also has  fab ideas and inspiration to draw from too.

I think colouring images is one of the most important elements and one most of us strive to perfect, well I know I do lol.

So I thought I would take part in their first  monthly challenge which is rolled flowers as featured in the latest magazine.

The fab prize is 3 digis from the talented Krista at Saturated Canary

Now I don't have a die though I know there are some out there....Memory Box spring to mind
Marianne Die Chinese Rose

I just cut random circles and cut a spiral into them.

I don't have a quilling tool either so I rolled them around a pencil and hoped for the best...

I'm fairly pleased with the result ?

The Image is a sweet stamp set Pure Innocence called Rose

Papers are Basic Grey again...Loving these

I seem to have a thing about Red at the mo ?

The pearl swirl and Pins by The Hobby House...we have them in store....yummy :)

Lastly I coloured her with Copics and Lyras...my new best friends..... loving them.

Well that's all from a rainy Yorkshire for now....

Love Katy xx
