DP2 Challenge ~ Ethnic


Hi Peeps!
Today is a new day for a challenge over at Mo's DP2. The challenge for this week is
Ethnic
If you pop over to Mo's store you'll see she's got lots of multicultural stamps to use. I love em!
And the winner of course gets treated very well indeed to Mo's goodies. :-)

So today I'm using this cute- as- can- be asian sweetie. Ive printed her out on Kraft paper and colored her with Prismacolor pencils. For her hair I used black and highlighted with light powdery blues for shine. The paper is DCWV.
A close up:


I hope you can all join us  this week! I'll be looking for you. :-)

Is this "Kraft" paper some American stuff, cos I haven't seen it anywhere here. Or is it just this very normal kraft packing stuff paper? Don't think so :)

Image is coloured sooooo beautifully. Again there is one wonderful tip you gave: Colouring black hair seems to need blue for shine, not white. Her kimono sleeves... ah, so gorgous and a flower is like you could touch it.

Forgot to say that OF COURSE you love this digi. Look at her, socks with flip flops ;)

This is stunning. Your coloring just pops off the page. I need to try coloring on kraft paper although I'm sure it wouldn't look like yours lol! Very pretty papers too.

Man, ya'll really did a great job this week. I love the theme and your cards. I didn't realize there were so many ethnic images at Mo's. This paper really sets off your coloring fabulously.
